3D 2N BATANG AI NATIONAL PARK & TIBU

The Batang Ai National Park is located in East Malaysia of the SIRI AMAN Division of the state of Sarawak. This national park houses one of the most endangered species of wildlife of the world i.e. the Orangutan, apart from several others protected wildlife such as gibbons and hornbills. It also serves as a water catchments area for a huge artificial lake that created the Batang Ai Hydro-electric dam. The lake extends up to the Engkari and Ai Valleys, where the scenery complements an atmosphere of peace pristine forests. Due to limited facilities available within the park, the best way to see it is via arranging to be part of a longhouse tour, where you'll get a chance to meet natives of the IBAN tribe. Discover how these people live in their communal house and how they interact non-destructively with nature.
