A selection of pictures of Belaga, the last major town in the upper Rejang valley, before the wilderness begins. Belaga can be reached my plane (from Bintulu) or by boat from Sibu and Kapit. Belaga is still relatively unknown by western tourists, but is an interesting place to visit and spend a few days. You can visit the longhouses in the area, do jungle treks or take a swim in the nearby rivers and waterfalls.
