Niah Caves, Miri Reviews
It’s a nice nature walk through the park. The park is provided with walkway and there’s no way you’ll get lost along the way unless you intentionally leave the developed walkway. The highlight of our trip to this place was exploring the Niah Cave Complex. It’s easy to explore however, it’s not recommended for those claustrophobic or those afraid of the dark as some inner section of the caves have no natural light. Bring headlights and flashlight when exploring the caves.
To reach one has to cross a river in a boat. Just prior boarding is a sign indicating river crocodiles. Beware not to fall into water an experience you never want to encounter. Once across there's a boardwalk up a flight of wooden planks Than a 15 mins walk on concrete pathway followed by approx. 50 mins or 3 km walk up to reach the Niah caves. Along the way are 4 rest stops. Astonishing to find the last one has a gender segregated toilet with running water for washing NOT advisable for drinking, yet one can get refreshments & pay 50 cents to use toilet. Than a 15 mins. to finally reach destination. Tips: Attire to bring along. Light weight back pack. Hat or cap for sun protection, slacks & long cotton shirt (to avoid mosquito bites). Spare shirt to change after hike. Anti mosquito cream. Ensure at least 2 liter water or more. Light snacks to increase endurance during walk up. A good idea is to have your camera along since half way you don't want to return to the car.
Love this place. I have been quite a few times and having seen so many other cave systems, I start to appreciate how wonderful this place is in terms of history and size.
Bukit kasut require at least 7 hours for those who are less exercise to reach the submit and return to the park office. The trail to the peak is adventure but unsafe during raining day. Hope the national park can improve in the ladder and safety rode or etc for the climbing to the summit for public.
Adult pass RM10. Cant stop taking pictures. Main entrance called Gua Dagang or Trader's Cave. Inside the cave is amazing. Need torchlight in the cave, its dark
