Lambir Hills National Park, Miri

(3.9/5 based on 100+ reviews on the web)
The Lambir Hills National Park is a national park in Miri Division, Sarawak, Malaysia, on the island of Borneo. It is a small park, at 6,952ha, and is composed largely of mixed dipterocarp forest, with some small areas of 'kerangas' (heath forest). The park is 150- above sea level.Animal lifeBiologists have recorded 237 species of birds, 64 species of mammals, 46 species of reptiles and 20 species of frogs in the national park. Large mammals such as gibbons and sun bear are absent or very rare due to the small size of the forest and illegal hunting. More recent surveys (2003–2007), however, failed to find 20% of the park’s resident bird species and 22% of the mammal species, losses that include half of the park’s primate species and six out of seven hornbill species.The park's invertebrates include the Rajah Brooke's Birdwing butterfly and more than 300 species of ants. Leeches are rare.Plant lifeIn 1991, the Sarawak Forest Department, Center for Tropical Forest Science/Harvard University, and the Plant Ecology Laboratory of Osaka City University, Japan created the Lambir Hills Forest Dynamics Plot. This is a 52ha area of the forest in which all trees thicker than 1.5cm at breast height have been measured, mapped and identified. Every few years, researchers do a census of these trees so they can track their growth and changes in the population structure of each species. A census of all trees in the plot found 1175 different species. This gives Lambir Hills National Park possibly the highest diversity of trees of any forest in the Old World.

  • Some very strenuous trails....i did the strenuous trail to tenkorong waterfalls...very slippery near the waterfalls; did camping near park hq; decent canteen with some good dishes to be had on pre order
  • 25 minutes drive from miri city and already in the middle of jungle with beautiful waterfalls. Place to relax from the busy miri city.
  • Adventurous going to the summit..the last 700m is not funny at all..safety always 👷
  • Great place for family. Great view of the waterfall
  • Tha waterfall is not really nice as pictured. But if you just want to enjoy with your friends, its still worth it.
