The small Dayak village of Mancong is worth a visit for its superb (but uninhabited) longhouse. For optimum jungle drama Mancong is best reached by boat on the Ohong creek from Lake Jempang. You'll meander past monitor lizards, sapphire-hued kingfishers, bulb-nosed proboscis monkeys, banded kraits and marauding macaques. They'll see you, but whether or not you see them is unknown. The journey beneath towering banyan trees is as much a part of the experience as your arrival.
