Overview

Discover the birthplace of civilization in Southeast Asia on a guided tour of the Niah Caves, located in Sarawak’s Niah National Park. Home to Borneo’s oldest human remains dating back 40,000 years, the park contains one of the largest limestone caves in the world. At this important archaeological site you’ll find cave paintings after a walk in the forest. Lunch and round-trip hotel transport from Miri are provided on this full-day tour.
  • Niah National Park day trip from Miri
  • Ride a boat across the river and trek in the forest
  • See the Niah cave paintings with an informative guide
  • Hotel pickup and drop-off included
Meet your guide upon hotel pickup in Miri and embark on a 1.5-hour drive to Niah National Park. Learn about the archaeological site showing evidence of Southeast Asia’s oldest human settlement and its main claim to fame: the remains of a 40,000-year-old Homo sapiens skull discovered in the Niah Caves.
On arrival, you’ll ride a boat across a narrow river and take a tranquil forest hike for roughly one hour to the vast limestone caves, home to bats and swiftlets. See a variety of plant life common to the limestone topography and perhaps encounter birds and other small animals.
Venture with your guide into the Niah Great Cave, where you’ll see the human skull on display along with tools made of stone, bone and iron. Not to be missed are the Niah cave paintings of boats and human figures. Wooden coffin ‘death-ships’ were also found here and their prehistoric artifacts are now on exhibit at the Sarawak Museum.
After a look, you'll stop at a park canteen for an included lunch before return transport 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.
