Belaga has a lot to offer in terms of eco-tourism. Cultures of different ethnic groups would be shown to travellers in times of festivals, wedding receptions, funerals and more. Its geographical features and the green wall of jungles surrounding the towns is another natural attraction. The people are extra kind by showing you what they have as you go around. Special dishes are often found during festivals. However, upon request, they will prepare different foods of your choice.

Other places of interest are the Kenyah tree of life, the great burials ground, longhouses of different tribes and the people themselves!
