Batang Rajang (Rajang River) is located in Sarawak in Malaysian Borneo, is the longest river in Malaysia.

The river originates in the high mountains of the island and flows about 340 miles (560 km) into Kapit, and then to the South China Sea.

The main center for boating the river and visiting Iban tribal longhouses is the small town of Belaga, on the river. While there are not a large number of tour operators, the ones there are well connected with the indigenous people, making finding a knowledge able local guide easier.

Overall Atmosphere: Combination
Combination Atmosphere destinations combine elements of both cultural and natural destinations, where this combination is itself essential to the travel experience. Common examples are Archaeological Sites (where culture is usually experienced outdoors), Scenic Local Markets (where indigenous cultures interact outdoors), Hotsprings and Vineyard Areas (where nature provides the raw materials but humans create the surroundings), and Unique Cultural Landscapes (where humans and nature interact in innovative ways, as in the elaborate rice terracing systems of Asia).

Combination Interests typically fall somewhere in the middle of the three types of primary interests in terms of
(a) how climate-dependent they are
(b) how accessible and physically demanding they are.
Featuring both cultural and natural attractions.
