Introducing Kapit

The main upriver settlement on the Batang Rejang, Kapit is a bustling trading and transport centre dating back to the days of the White Rajahs. A number of nearby longhouses can be visited by road or river but the pickings are thin when it comes to finding a good local guide.

Fans of Redmond O’Hanlon’s Into the Heart of Borneo may remember Kapit as the starting point of the author’s jungle adventures.
