Batang Ai Dam is located in Lubok Antu, Some 233km from Sibu town. The dam is operational since around mid 1980s.
This is the road leading to Lubok Antu (about 40km) after taking a turn at the junction at the Sibu-Kuching trunk road.
The view of the Batang Ai Dam is truly spectacular. However the road here is kind of narrow and one should try not to park their vehicle inconsiderately. I notice there are a few small paths (only accessible by walking) along the road which might give a better and closer view of the dam
The dam has 4 turbines of 25MW each.
Behind this dam is a huge reservoir area and a resort, the Hilton Batang Ai.
This is what I believed to be the river diversion after passing through the dam's turbines
