A traditional rainforest adventure
Day 01: Journey and overnight in Ugat longhouse as per Sarawak Jungle Escapade.
Day 02: After breakfast, travel upriver by longboat to the remote Lubok Pantau longhouse.

Lunch is cooked in traditional Iban style by the river bank. In the afternoon, arrive at the 13 door Lubok Pantau longhouse. Dinner and traditional entertainment in the longhouse. Overnight on comfortable traditional beds unrolled on the longhouse floor.
Day 03: Breakfast in the longhouse. Spend the morning building traditional Iban rafts, made from timber and bamboo lashed together with jungle creepers. Embark for downriver rafting trip in near-white-water conditions, accompanied one experienced Iban raft man for every 2 persons. Dinner and accommodation by the river bank (tents or traditional makeshift shelters) or in a nearby longhouse, depending on raft building progress.
Day 04: Breakfast by the river bank. Continue rafting to Ugat longhouse. Board a longboat to the jetty for van / coach transfer to Kuching, with lunch en route.
