Day 01 KUCHING - IBAN LONGHOUSE (lunch, dinner)
This 4-day tour will take you to the most remote places to experience the local Iban culture. You will be driven for about 4.5 hours passing through lush green countryside dotted with padi fields, pepper gardens and rubber plantations, and flanked by rugged jungle-clad mountains.  There will be stops along the way for visiting the Serian farmer’s market and a pepper garden where you can have the opportunity to see rare carnivorous pitcher plants. Another stop for lunch will be in Lachau town at a roadside bazaar. Upon arrival at the jetty you will be boarding a longboat and cruising up Batang Ai River, passing through typical Borneo countryside with a longhouse tucked behind almost every bend in the river.  Explore Ugat or similar Longhouse and enjoy a native dinner prepared by Ibans. Overnight in the longhouse.
Day 02 IBAN LONGHOUSE (full board)
After breakfast, travel upriver by longboat to the remote Lubuk Pantau Longhouse. The water flows faster as the boat climbs higher, and the boatman frequently has to “shoot the rapids”. During the dry season, visitors may have to climb out and push the boat. Enjoy a lunch in traditional Iban style; food will be cooked in bamboo tubes over an open fire. In the afternoon, arrive at the 13-door Lubuk Pantau Longhouse.  Dinner and overnight on traditional beds rolled on the longhouse floor.
Day 03  IBAN LONGHOUSE - BAMBOO RAFTING (full board)
Spend the morning building traditional Iban rafts, made from timber and bamboo lashed together with jungle creepers. Embark for downriver rafting adventure in near-white-water conditions, accompanied by an experienced Iban raft man. Dinner and overnight by the riverbank (tends or traditional makeshift shelters) or in a nearby Longhouse, depending on progress.
Day 04 BAMBOO RAFTING - KUCHING (breakfast, lunch)
After breakfast, continue rafting to Ugat Longhouse, and then board a longboat and continue downriver to the jetty to catch the coach back to Kuching. Lunch is served en route at Ranchan Waterfall. Arrive Kuching in the late afternoon
