About Batang AiBatang Ai means "main river". The river has been dammed to form the site of one of the largest hydroelectric schemes in the region. A huge reservoir has been formed which has drowned some of the valleys of the area, and with it, a number of villages and longhouses. The reservoir, however, has provided a magnificent backdrop to some breathtaking scenery, and provides an easy means for accessing areas upstream of the dam. Beyond the lake, visitors can see wonderful dipterocarp forests with drooping trees overhanging the river. In this area the primary means of transport is by boat on the rivers.
Batang Ai National Park is but a boat trip away, and has a huge
variety of wildlife and flora to amaze the visitor. The trip to the park
takes you up river past tiny villages. A short hike through
areas of the park will provide an insight into the flora and fauna of the
region. The park is home to wild Orang-utans and many other protected wildlife
such as the hornbills and gibbons.
