Niah Caves, Miri Reviews
The caves and the walk to them were amazing. Such natural beauty and well worth a visit. Purposely not uploading pictures as they won't do it justice. Breathtakingly stunning when the sun shines through the caves. Almost magical. The only reason it's not 5 star review is due to the maintenance or rather lack of safety at the reception area. My husband fell through the wooden floor boards (he is not a heavy man by far!) And seriously injured himself.
Worth a visit! Cave entrance was huge! At the start of hike, you cross the river which literally takes like 5 seconds. Hike was moderate. Little slippery at times as there are stairs at points and in the caves so wear sturdy shoes. I found it interesting to see the things they harvested the birds nests with, they hung from the roof of the caves. You need to bring lights as caves are dark and there is no lighting inside. Can buy a drink or some souvenirs from these ladies that have their little stalls on rout to/back from caves. There is also a museum worth a wonder through :)
An hour's drive away from Central Miri on slightly windy roads takes you to Niah National Park. You can explore nature in a one hour (4km) paved trail to see the beautiful caves in this barely touched landscape. The scenery is just stunning. Facilities are pretty well maintained and considerably clean. Do come with good shoes though, pathway can get slippery and bring along a flashlight as the caves get pitched black along the trail. Definitely a must go, it's worth the trip.
Enjoyable stroll into the caves. Caves sells itself =) Park admin should do more with maintenance - the maps & signs in the caves are dilapidated. The new front office is anonymous, we couldn't recognize it.
An excellent place for family outing.
