Location : Dusun Sungai Utik, Desa Batu Lintang, Kecamatan Embaloh Hulu, Kabupaten Kapuas Hulu, Kalimantan Barat, Indonesia.
We started from Kuching passing through the Tebedu/Entikong CIQ, Sanggau, Sekadau, Sintang, Nanga Pinoh, Putussibau and before we exited through Badau/Lubuk Antu CIQ, we dropped by briefly at Sungai Utik Iban longhouse thanks to Pesona Borneo.
Rumah Betang Sungai Utik is a Iban tribe longhouse, located in the north-west of Kapuas Hulu, roughly 75 km away from Putussibau. Sungai Utik longhouse has 28 doors, it is one of the longhouses that is still maintained of its authenticity.
The external looks of most longhouses are usually very deceiving. The interior that awaits visitors are usually jaw dropping. Sungai Utik longhouse is no exception, could even be more luxurious than most city hotel rooms. The cool interior in the absence of airconditioning is just incredible.
For those spoilt city folks who wish to enjoy a visit to a longhouse without sacrificing comfort, Sungai Utik has to be IT🤗👍🏽. We hope to be able to do a more lengthy visit in the near future to find more surprises that Sungai Utik has to offer.
