Day 4/Headhunters Trail

This morning we follow the ancient path of the headhunters, crossing two rivers to meet the boat at Kuala Terikan. Descend down the river to the Iban longhouse. Here, we spend a night as guests of our Iban hosts. Please don't expect any comforts and be prepared for the fact that the living conditions in the longhouse are extremely basic – this night is designed to give you a first-hand taste of how the Iban people live and also provide an insight into their unique customs. We will be sleeping on the ground, on simple mats and it is highly recommended that you bring your own sleeping sheet. The Iban are generally very reserved people unless, of course, they get on to their home-brewed rice wine! In the evening, share a glass of "Tuak" (rice wine) with the Ibans and join in their music and traditional dances. The white-men's version of the headhunters' dance is always the most amusing!. We overnight at longhouse.

Meals included: 1 breakfast,1 lunch, 1 dinner.
