About this Package

  • Niah Great Cave is alive with 40,000 years of unwritten history because it was inhabited by humans at least 40 millennia ago. The caves are the site of some of the oldest human remains discovered in Southeast Asia. You will not be the only visitor to this magnificent cave. It is the haunt of local Penan tribesmen, who make a living collecting edible birds nests built high in the cave walls by swiftlets. The birds’ nests are prized by Chinese gourmets around the world.
  • After the Lubang Padang, you enter a totally dark passage known as Moon Cave (Gan Kira). It is essential to bring a flashlight,- not only to find the way but also to admire the remarkable rock shapes and weathering effects.
  • In the Painted Cave (GuaKainHitam), ancient human figures drawn on the wall by prehistoric inhabitants watch over gravesites where the dead were laid out in boat-shaped wooden coffins. The graves and artefacts of those ancient inhabitants have been carefully preserved for visitors to see.  If you are lucky, you might see rare naked bats shooting out from the cave into the gathering gloom, their passage heralded by their peculiar loud whooping wing beats.
  • Take your eyes from the sky and search the ground and you could find the Niah Cave gecko, a lizard found only in Borneo. End your evening with a romantic walk in the moonlight accompanied by the symphony of sound that is the rainforest at night.   The park also has two well-marked walking trails, the Bukit Kasut trail and the Madu trail.
  • To take in all of Niah’s wonders will take more than a day trip. To appreciate all its attractions, stay a night or more in the park’s chalet or hostel accommodation. Then, at dusk, you will witness thousands of roundleaf bats flying around the cave ceiling before streaming into the forest canopy. At the same time, huge, swirling flocks of swiftlets return to the cave to roost.
  • The park headquarters is a two hour’s drive from Miri or Bintulu. From the park headquarters, you need to cross the Niah River in a motorized boat and then take a one hour walk on a walkway to reach the entrance of The Great Cave. The walkway also links to an Iban longhouse homestay.
  • The Great Cave is approximately 3.5 km from the park headquarters and is easily reached via the plank walk, which is enclosed on both sides by dense primary rainforest. The stroll along plank walk is fascinating in its own right, as you pass close to giant ketapang trees with their enormous buttressed roots, pandanus plants twice the size of a person, exquisitely formed orchids and tree fungi.
  • It is worth taking your time and walking quietly along the way, as you may well see some of the park’s wildlife. Colourful birds, squirrels, lizards, butterflies and all manner of unusual insects and invertebrates are commonly seen. If you are lucky, you may see monkeys (you will certainly hear them), flying lizards and the occasional hornbill.
  • The first significant rock formation you reach is the Trader’s Cave, which is really an extended rock overhang rather than a cave proper. This is where the bird's nest and guano traders conducted their business in days gone by, hence the name.
  • A few minutes later, the West Mouth of the Great Cave comes into view, and you are left in no doubt that this cave deserves its name. At over 60m high and 250m wide, it is one of the world’s most spectacular cave entrances, leading to an even larger chamber within. On the left of the cave mouth, the archaeological excavations are clearly visible.
  • Photographers should come prepared, as the view from the cave mouth out over the surrounding jungle is unique, and the jagged stalactites, overhangs and dangling creepers of the cave mouth make a dramatic frame for a very memorable photo.
  • Proceeding into the cave, the sound of disembodied voices mingles with the squeaking of millions of bats and swiftlets to create an eerie atmosphere. The voices belong to the guano collectors, who toil by the light of paraffin lamps to collect the guano (bird and bat excrement) covering the cave floor. The guano is then carried in sacks to the Sungai Niah, where it is graded and sold as fertiliser.
  • The passage at the back of the Great Cave leads to a large chamber known as the Padang, where shafts of sunlight stream down from large holes in the cave roof to illuminate the bizarre rock formations in the Burnt Cave (Lubang Hangus). This is another excellent spot for taking photos. After the Padang, you enter a totally dark passage known as Gan Kira (Moon Cave). This is where the torch (flashlight) is essential – not only to find your way but also to admire the remarkable rock shapes and weathering effects.
  • Shortly after the Gan Kira (Moon Cave), the plank walk emerges into daylight and a short pathway through the forest leads to the Painted Cave. This is the site of the famous Niah cave paintings and the place where the ‘death ships’ were found. The contents of the death-ships have since been transferred to the Sarawak Museum, but the cave paintings and some of the empty death-ships can still be viewed on the wall behind the fenced-off burial site. The paintings can be difficult to see unless you allow your eyes to become accustomed to the light. They are rendered in red hematite and cover a long narrow strip (approximately 30m) at the back of the cave wall. They portray spread-eagled human figures, probably representing warriors and hunters, some of the animals of the surrounding forest, and – most importantly – longboats carrying the souls of the deceased on the dangerous journey to the land of the dead.
  • Although the burial site at the Painted Cave is far more recent than those at the Great Cave, it is no less important as it offers a clear insight into the development of the traditional religions of Borneo. It is worth spending some time at the Painted Cave, as the atmosphere of the place is very tranquil and relaxing. It is easy to understand why Niah’s earlier inhabitants felt it was a suitable resting place for their ancestors.
  • Life positively abounds in Sarawak and nowhere more than the Lambir Hills, which scientists recognize as one of the world’s most ecologically diverse areas. When they sampled just 52 hectares of the park’s 7,000 hectares, they found 1,050 different species of trees, each supporting 1,200 species of insects.
  • Visit the park and you may just find one of the many plant and insect species that ecologist thinks exist in Lambir, but which have not yet been described. You may also spot some of the 157 types of bird that live in the park as you wander the trails of this fascinating forest. Other wild animals here include Gibbons, Tarsiers, and even clouded leopard. However, chances to spot them is higher for guests in small groups due to their sensitiveness to humans.
  • A network of jungle trails allows guest of all ages to explore the pristine rainforest. Ranging from an easy 15 minutes stroll to the famous Latak Waterfall to the adventurous 4 hours of Bukit Lambir (465 metres) with its superb views of the rainforest below. Waterfalls cascade from the Lambir Hills, forming pools that are pleasant places to bathe after a hot trek
  • With all its attractions, this ecological wonderland is easily accessible. Just a 30-minute drive from Miri, Sarawak’s second-largest city, it is one of the most accessible of Sarawak’s national parks. This makes it ideal for a day visit but overnight accommodation at the park headquarters gives you time to study the wildlife at leisure. The park also provides facilities for formal activities such as conferences, meetings, and team-building activities. The in-house restaurant provides a variety of local dishes.
