Destination

Batang Ai Lake

The Batang Ai area is the site of the oldest Iban settlements in Sarawak. Iban first arrived here from Kalimantan in the 15th Century, before spreading out into the Skrang, Saribas, Rejang and Lundu areas, and onward throughout Sarawak. A hydro-electric scheme completed in 1980 has dammed the Batang Ai river and formed a 24 sq km lake fed by four crystal clear tributaries. Whilst communities were resettled as part of the dam project, a number of Iban longhouses remain above the flood waters. Batang Ai lake is the staging point for Borneo Adventure’s trips to the Iban longhouses of Ulu Ai.
