Introduction

Ibans stay in homes which are locally known as longhouse (a long stretch wooden house standing on stilts). Each of them has 20 - 25 rooms all under 1 roof.



Itinerary

A village of 20 - 25 'bilek' or rooms (each for one family) all under one roof of a long stretch wooden house standing on stilts. The expedition will beginwith a 4 hours car ride passing through the scenic greenery countryside. The vast land on both side of the road are can be seen dotted with vegetable farms, padi fields, rubber, pepper oil palm and cocoa plantations which generated some of the top revenue earner crops of Sarawak. En route you will have a brief stopover at small native town called Serian for chance to experience the busy daily wet market and witness some of the rare jungle produce brought by the native from the deep jungle to sell to the town folks. A brief lunch break will be at 'Lachau' - small popular 'cowboy' town for Indonesian natives from the nearby Kalimantan border town to do barter trade without the proper document. You could do your last minute shopping for the visiting gift to present to your Iban host. The car ride will end at a riverbank where a further native longboat ride will take you upstream. Boat ride journey varies depending on which longhouse and water level of the river from 20 min to nearly an hour. Poling under tress bending protectively over the river and shooting rapids (during dry season, you might be required get down and help the boatman to drag the boat for a short distance) before arriving at your destination. Upon arrival at the Longhouse, you can  tour  around  the  longhouse  while  the  'semi-wild'  boars  and  hunting  dogs  running   nearby.  You  can  mingle  with  the Longhouse folks & talk about their daily activities and the communal style of living at the Longhouse or share your side of the story. The Iban maidens and 'warriors' will perform a welcome dance while 'tuak' - the locally brewed rice wine are served as welcome drink. Demonstration of their favourite gambling game - 'cock fighting' and using of the blowpipe will be held at the open space.
