Lambir Hills National Park, Miri
Categories: Canyons, Nature & Parks
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.Make Lambir Hills National Park part of your personalized Miri itinerary using our Miri vacation planner.

We chose to visit Lambir Hills on a cloudy day later in the afternoon as it was slightly cooler. It was a half hour drive out of the city. Parking is easy and free. The entrance fee to the park was 20... read more »

Inside must register at the office and spend the day or stay a night. We remain in a very old wooden bungalow and foul-smelling, but this State in the accommodation in Sarawak and Sabah, far from cities is often. Otherwise the shower and the room were great. The interesting thing are trekking routes marked by colors and a subtle but firm path that always marks the path to follow. There are 30-minute to 8 - 10 hours, us the first day we did the short and the second got on one of the hills. The best:-feeling that you are in the midst of a primary jungle without any sign of civilization, apart from the narrow path. -Observe how will changing the vegetation as we ascend the Hill, arduous task. The sound of the jungle. -Very fresh bathrooms in several pools and ponds with waterfalls that are located along the road. The worst:-the most powerful with uphill and cansadisimas routes. -There are many insects that take care of yourself (Scorpions, spiders...) - stifling humidity. Lady cooking in very nice canteen, invited us fruit and pick up mangosteen tree. It would be ideal for a daytrip.show original
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.
Tha waterfall is not really nice as pictured. But if you just want to enjoy with your friends, its still worth it.
I managed to finish a sketchy yet intricate drawing of nature's wonderful forest, with it's wildlife, friendly insects and waterfalls.
Good weekend gateway. There is a waterfall in the National Park.
