  • Longhouse is a village of 20-25 “bilek” or rooms (each for one family), all under one roof. Journey to the longhouse begin with a 4 hours car ride passing through the scenic countryside. The vast land on both side of the road are dotted with vegetable farms, paddy fields, rubber, pepper, oil palm and cocoa plantations which are some of the top revenue earner crops of Sarawak. En route a brief stopover at a small town called Serian. You will have a chance to experience the busy daily wet market and witness some of the rare jungle produce being sold by the native. Lunch will be at Lachau, a small popular “cowboy” town for Indonesian natives from the nearby Kalimantan border town who came over to do barter trade. You could do your last minute shopping here for a gift to your Iban host. The journey overland will end at a riverbank where a native longboat will takes you further upstream. Duration of the boat ride varies from 20 minutes to 1 hour; depending on which longhouse and the water level of the river. Poling under trees bending protectively over the river and shooting rapids (during dry season, you might be required to get down and help to drag the boat for a short distance) before arriving at your destination. Upon arrival, you can tour around the longhouse where semi wild boars and hunting dogs run nearby. Mingle with the Longhouse folks and talk about their daily activities and life at the Longhouse.
