Characteristics

Description

Selat Indragiri (Indragiri River) (Batong Kwantan) penetrates in its upper reaches far into the
Padang uplands.
Its principal mouth is the Kuala Laja, which is the most serviceable channel for larger vessels.
Vessels with a maximum length of 60m and a maximum draft of 4m can be taken across the bar of the Kuala Lajau; this depth can be maintained for about 30 miles upriver. An abandoned customs station stands on the S side of the entrance to Kuala Lajau; a village, built on piles, stands on the N side.
