Day 1

Depart from your hotel in the oil town of Miri early in the morning and drive 2 hours to Niah National Park (110 km). A stop may be made at a local market out of town. From the park headquarters in Niah, hike on a 3 km raised board walk which winds through lowland forest, to the entrance of the Great Cave. The Great Cave sheltered human life some 40,000 years ago. The discovery of human skulls gave this cave international archeological importance. Here lie the oldest human remains in Southeast Asia, along with many other relics of prehistoric man. Today the cave is home only to bats, swiflets and other specially adapted forms of life. Local people still venture into the dark interior to collect guano and birds nests which form the basis of the chinese delicacy of Birds Nest Soup. Explore the cave and surroundings.
