Arrive at the waterfall and have time to relax, swim and enjoy the rainforest surroundings. Enjoy a riverside BBQ lunch prepared by your Iban hosts. At 1330-1400 hours proceed by boat (approx. 15 mins) to the junction of the Delok and Lalang Rivers. Then trek for 1-2 hours along a rainforest trail through orang utan habitat and arrive at Lubok Kasai jungle camp which is located on the banks of the Lalang River. Settle in at Lubok Kasai.
