|PRICE OF THE TOUR PER PAX (RM)|

Approximate Duration : Full day
0800 hrs, meet at the hotel lobby by your guide and take the overland transfer about 1 hr to Niah National Park. When arrive, transfer by boat across the river and trek for 1 hour to the entrance of the Great Caves. Here lies the oldest human remains in Southeast Asia, along with many other relics of prehistoric man. Today the cave is home only to bats, swiftlets and other adaptable forms of life. However, a few locals still venture into the dark interior to collect guano (birds and bats droppings used as fertilizer) and birds’ nest. Colorful birds, squirrels, lizards, butterflies and all maner of unusual insects and invertebrates are commonly seen. If you are lucky, you may see monkeys, flying lizards and the occasional hornbill. Shortly after the Moon Cave, the plank walk emerges into daylight and onto a short pathway through the forest leading to the Painted Cave. This is the sire of the famous Niah cave paintings and the place where the ‘death-ship’ were found. The contents of the deathships however have since been transferred to the Sarawak Museum. Here, visitors will see the fenced-off burial site where it used to be the place for their tombs. Depart Niah National Park in the afternoon, lunch at a local restaurant.
After lunch, we proceed about 45 min drive to Lambir Hill National Park. This park has an outstanding regional and global conservation significance for its extraordinary species-rich forest, ideal for botanist and researchers throughout the world. More than half of the area of the park is covered with rich natural Mixed Dipterocarp Forest where huge, tall dipterocarp trees such as Kapur, Meranti, Kempas and Selangan Batu are found. Apart from the various tree species, the park is very rich in other plant species such as ferns, gingers, vines, palms, mushrooms, moss and lichen, flowering and fruiting shrub trees, climbers and creepers. There are a good variety of animals including bats, monkeys, pangolins and barking deer. Up to 157 species of birds have been recorded here. After a swimming spree, we will transfer back to your hotel or Miri Airport for your onward flight.
