Long Napir is located at the confluence of two rivers, Sungai Medihit and Sungai Limbang, about 90 miles from Limbang. The nearest town is Nanga Medamit; this can be reached in about four hours by 4WD vehicle on logging tracks, but the journey by river takes a day.
The Resident Office of Limbang has a "URA Hostel" in the Long Napir for the administrative officer who acts as "Up River Agent". There is a primary school, clinic and public telephones; all electricity is from local generators.
The population in 2007 was 241 families, consisting of:
- Kelabit: 382 adults, 476 children
- Penan: 166 adults, 134 children
A proposed hydroelectric dam project in the upper Limbang river would submerge the village and surrounding district.
