Tour MYY 02 – Niah National Park (full day with lunch)

Morning, depart Miri for a 2 hours drive passing through oil palm plantations, secondary forest, picturesque countryside and Batu Niah – a small inland town.  Proceed to the park headquarters, then by boat to cross the Niah river. Continue with a 45 minutes walk on a raised plank-walk (4km long) through a lush rainforest before reaching Niah Cave entrance.  Explore this famous cave system, archaeological sites and primitive hematite paintings on the walls.  Observe the bewildering and dangerous maneuvers of bird-nest collectors climbing flimsy scaffoldings and wooden poles to reach the dark crevasses of the caves to collect the nest. After lunch,  return to Miri via the same route.
