Kuching

DAY 1

09:00am Depart Kuching by car for holiday. The journey passing through green countryside scenery, padi fields, rubber plantations, cocoa garden, pepper orchards, lush jungle.  Lunch at small town.  After lunch we proceed to the final stage of the journey, and arrive at the jetty. (Approximately 4 hour drive).

We proceed by native longboats, and travel by boat further up the river about 45 minutes.  You will see Ibans on their way to the farm in their dugout or longboats.  Then you arrive at an Iban longhouse. On arrival at the longhouse, we will be taken on a tour the longhouse, to meet the natives and their families. Observe the natives performing their daily chores like making baskets, mats, fishing nets or weaving Pua Kumbu, feeding their livestock, washing clothes, fishing, or swimming in the river. Activities for the evening include dining in the longhouse / guesthouse. The Iban women will display their handicrafts for sale. As a tourist, do not feel obliged to buy.  Just smile and nod your head… showing "No, thank you" or if you wish…in Iban "Ngai, terima kasih". The Ibans will then sound their gongs and perform their traditional war dance in full ceremonial regalia. One is often invited to join in… don’t be shy… it can be fun… even if you don't understand their language. Don't leave without tasting their rice wine "Tuak". Overnight spent in the guesthouse with the Ibans. (Basic Amenities) (L,D)

DAY 2

After breakfast, witness cockfighting and blowpipe demonstration games before you go for a jungle walk and then continue upstream by native longboat.  After negotiating more rapids and going through dense tropical foliage, where the water is low you may participate with pushing and lifting the longboat along the rapids which is really exciting. As you venture further up the river, in exploration of the river and its surroundings we make stops to collect jungle products like bamboo shoots and fishing along the riverbank.  Enjoy a Bamboo picnic lunch on the riverbank.  After lunch visit another longhouse along the river and then return to first longhouse/guesthouse for the night. By the end of this tour, you may know a few native words, and have had some lessons of wood carving, weaving and maybe some Iban warrior tales or legends to bring back home!! (B,L,D)

DAY 3

On the third day, you make your way down the river and proceed back to civilization and arrive in Kuching

NOTE

Because of primitive conditions, be prepared for some discomfort. Please travel light.
