Canyon Nature / Park
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.

  • It is the one of best places to visit if you are in miri. There are several transportation but make sure you leave early, also l noticed the park has chalets for renting. Waterfalls are so beautiful.
  • Those visiting Miri & have love to nature must go here. Many distinctly marked(different distance/endurance) trails & waterfalls to workout/enjoy. With frds we visit every month to go close to nature
  • Definitely worth a visit. Plenty of trail choices for all abilities. Hearing the distant call of Gibbons was quite something. The waterfall near the end of one of the trails is very beautiful, a bit cold but refreshing!
  • Got to pay for entrance. Nice place to go camping
  • Lambir is a good place to visit for people looking to spend just half a day out of Miri or those looking for a nice, easy walk in nature. The simple trails e.g. to Latak Waterfall are suitable for all, including family with small kids. The longer trails need some level of fitness and longer time to complete.
