Batang Ai in Sarawak is a place asking to be discovered, with its medieval longhouses, wild orangutans in their natural habitats and Iban culture! This is a truly remote corner of the land, with slices of untouched wilderness. When the Batang Ai River was dammed in the 1980s as part of a hydro power project, the beautiful, crystal clear Batang Ai lake was formed. A number of old time Iban longhouses still remain in the area, visible above the flood waters even to this day. The Iban people are believed to have come over from Kalimantan to settle in Sarawak and surrounding regions after the 15th century.
