Exploration The village of Murat on the Skrang River Borneo Sarawak

The Skrang River was one of the first areas settled by Iban immigrants in the 16th to 18th centuries. On my exploring trip to Sri Aman, I saw the signboard saying Skrang river safari, so I decided to go in and have a look.

Upon reaching the village, I can see a yellow colored river next to the village, and a lot of cars parked there. Only I notice that it was the harvest festive, and all of the people went back to their longhouse for celebration. I saw two kids riding a bike there. I stop them to ask about what do they have on upstream, the kids told me that there are many traditional Iban longhouses along the Skrang River.
