Niah Caves, Miri
(4.1/5 based on 220 reviews on the web)
Explore the vast underground chambers of Niah Caves, home to otherworldly rock formations, ancient cave paintings, and legions of swiftlets, the makers of solidified-saliva dwellings that often end up in bird's nest soups. Access the caves via a 3 km (1.9 mi) trek, doable without a guide. No special equipment is required here, but you can make your visit more enjoyable by wearing sturdy shoes, bringing plenty of water, and carrying your own flashlight to avoid paying for rental. Make Niah Caves a centerpiece of your Miri vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our Miri itinerary planner.
