Sungai Batang Hari (Djambi River) (E Sumatra)

Sungai Batang Hari (Djambi River) (E Sumatra)



Djambi River (Batang Hari), the largest river in Sumatera, has two principal mouths used by shipping, named Kuala Berbak and Kuala Niur.

Vessels should not enter Kuala Niur without local knowledge; the buoys and beacons may be shifted in accordance with the changes in the channel and therefore it is advisable to employ a pilot.

Pilotage in Kuala Niur is compulsory for vessels between Muarasabak and Djambi. Requests for pilotage should be made at least 24 hours before arrival at Muarasabak.
The coast W of Kuala Niur is low and marshy; several streams of no importance to shipping run into the sea, and the coast is sparsely populated.
