Batang Ai Iban Longhouse

     Batang Ai (Ai River) Iban Longhouse is located approximately 270km outside Kuching and can be reached by road in 5 hours  to Batang Ai Terminal followed by an hour's longboat ride crossing the man-made lake to a series of Iban Longhouses. At Nanga Ukom Longhouse, there lives a 20 doors Iban Longhouse community. The community is ruled by a Headman and a Council of Elders. Most of the inhabitants are simple cultivators of hill rice, pepper vines and tapping rubber trees for their living. Visitors to Nanga Ukom Longhouse will spend a night or two with the people and experience an ancient culture that is fast disappearing. For overnight stay our company would provide mattresses, pillows, bed sheets, blankets, mosquito nets and towels.
