National Parks to Explore in Sarawak
Oldest national park in Sarawak. Millions of years of erosion of the sandstone have created a coastline of steep cliffs, rocky headlands, and stretches of white, sandy bays. Wave erosion at the base of the cliffs has carved many of the rocky headlands into fantastically shaped sea arches and sea stacks with colored patterns formed by iron deposition.
Niah National Park provides some interesting and impressive sights. The area was a major center of human settlement as early as 40,000 years ago and features one of the world’s largest cave entrances, Palaeolithic and Neolithic burial sites and iron-age cave paintings.
The famed Lambir Hills National Park is located along the Miri-Bintulu road, 36 km south-west of Miri town in Sarawak, East Malaysia. There are around 1,173 tree species in the park alone, with 286 genera and 81 tree families making Lambir one of the more diversified forests in Malaysia.
