Tours - TOUR NO. 15 Niah National Park (fullday 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, followed by a 45 minutes walk on a raised plank-walk (4km long) which snakes through a lush rainforest to reach the  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.  (L)
