Know More about this tour

After pickup from centrally located hotels in Miri, take a 90-minute drive to Niah National Park, home to the Niah Caves. While Niah is one of Sarawak’s smaller national parks, it is certainly one of the most important, as it is home to Borneo's oldest human remains, which date back 40,000 years. On this day trip you'll visit the archaeological site of the oldest settlement of Homo sapiens in the region. 

Upon arrival, register at park headquarters, then travel with your guide by boat across a narrow river. You'll hike for about an hour before arriving at a limestone cave, home to bats, swiftlets, and other specially adapted animals. Let your guide point out the wide variety of plant life in the forest, which covers some 7,756 acres (3,102 hectares) in the park. The 1,294-foot (394-meter) peak of Gunung Subis dominates the landscape. A quiet walk allows for birdlife and other small forest creatures to appear. 

Explore the vastness of the Great Cave, where you'll find a skull on display along with tools made out of stone, bone, and iron. Not to be missed is the Painted Cave, the site of prehistoric cave paintings as well as wooden coffin ‘death-ships' whose contents are exhibited at the Sarawak Museum.

You'll stop at the park canteen for a provided lunch before returning to your Miri hotel.

  • The customer service team is not very responsive. Upon the booking, Ive submitted two enquiries to double check the tour pick up location, on 06 June and 11 June. Ive not received any confirmation up to 18 June. I had to contact the local provider to arrange the next day tour.

    Despite that, the tour itself is awesome. Charlie, our tour guide did such a fantastic job.
