Experience the amazing opportunity to take a peek into the lives of traditional Iban Tribespeople, once a strong and successful warring tribe in the past.
Day 1 - Kuching / Lemanak Iban Longhouse
Your adventure begins with a journey towards Lemanak River that would take about 4 hours, passing padi fields, pepper plantations, farms, roadside kampungs and tropical jungles. We will be stopping at the small town of Serian and later for a delicious lunch at Lachau. At the jetty, we will board a native boat for the upriver journey towards the Iban Longhouse. On arrival, settle in at the Longhouse while your guide prepares dinner. After a simple dinner, join the rest of the longhouse folks and enjoy an evening of music and dance with rounds of tuak, their home made rice wine!
When the evening winds down, guests can present their gifts to the Iban, small tokens which will be shared equally amongst all those present. We recommend pens, pencils, children’s reading/colouring/drawing/exercise books, cookies, candy, even canned food – inexpensive things, but well liked and appreciated. We will head back for a good night’s rest at the River Lodge, but arrangements can be made to stay with an Iban Family. A note of caution however, dogs are a close part of the family and you may find yourself sleeping near one!
Day 2 - Lemanak Iban Longhouse / Kuching
We will have a nice breakfast at the guest house before taking part in the exciting activity of blowpipe and cockfight demonstrations by the tribespeople. We will then proceed for a nature walk, visiting the native farms as well as their traditional Iban burial ground before travelling back down river to catch the coach back to Kuching city.
