tour details

Departing from Kuching on your Borneo Rainforest Kayaking adventure, you’ll first pass small pepper farms on the way to Bengoh – a Bidayuh village in the misty highlands. Here, you’ll hop into your kayak and follow a tributory before it joins the Sarawak Kiri river. Half way down the river, alight to explore a delightful Bidayuh village & enjoy a native lunch. You’ll then continue kayaking, surrounded by lush vegetation and enthralled by the stunning views of limestone hills that change around each bend in the river. Later, enjoy a culinary evening tour back at Kuching where a Malaysian family will invite you into their home to show you how to make traditional local food! After a stop at a local market, you’ll taste your self-made dishes as you enjoy a local dinner with your host family.

Arrive back from Batang Ai in the afternoon and transfer to your hotel of choice in Kuching. Check-in at hotel & free at leisure.

After breakfast, depart for Borneo Rainforest Kayaking. This is a 'must-do' experience for nature lovers and anyone yearning for a little bit of adventure. Transfer through undulating terrain dotted by small scale pepper farms to Bengoh, a delightful Bidayuh village in the mist-covered highlands of Borneo. Here you'll be given paddling instructions and a safety briefing before proceeding to a small tributary where your parked kayaks await you. This small shaded stream with overhanging trees, steep banks, and a bridge overhead, has just enough room for your kayaks to get through, and meanders a short distance before opening into the vista of Sarawak Kiri river.
About half-way down the river, you'll alight to explore a delightful Bidayuh village and have a native lunch. After which, continue your kayaking surrounded by lush vegetation, enthralled by the ever changing and stunning scenic views of limestone hills around each bend in the river. Just before the end of your journey, you will have to get past an 'exciting' class 1 to 2 (depending on the water volume and flow) rapid!
Return to your hotel in Kuching to freshen-up before your culinary evening tour.
A Malaysian family invites you into their home to show you how to make traditional local food! En-route to the family's house you will stop at a local market to buy some fresh ingredients. As a guest in the family's house, you will not only learn how to cook, but you will also get a deeper insight into the Malaysian way of life. Taste your self-made dishes and enjoy a delicious local dinner with the host family.
