LAMBIR HILLS NATIONAL PARK

SARAWAK

 

The Lambir Hills National Park, gazette in 1975, covers an area of approximately 6,952 hectares south-west of Miri.  The highest peak rises some 450m above sea level,, in a chain of sandstone hills bounded by rugged cliffs.  The lush valleys and lower slopes are covered with mixed dipterocarp forests while heath forests dominate the upper regions.  The silence within this green wilderness is broken only by the calls of various birds and the roar of the mighty waterfalls plunging down into the emerald green depths of rocky pools below.

 
 

FLORA & FAUNA

 

Composed mostly of mixed dipterocarp and kerangas, the area is rich in palms of the licuala species and the stilt rooted Eugeissona.  The ground flora includes an exotic mix of various species of Ariods, Ginger, Ferns, Terrestial orchids, Epiphytes and vines.  Hill casuarinas cover the kerangas (heath) forests of the upper regions while the ground flora is largely composed of shrubs, ferns and pitcher plants.

 

The forest supports a rich and varied wildlife with 157 species of birds heading the list. There are also bats, various rodents, the scaly ant eating pangolins, bearded pigs, barking deer, monkeys and Bornean gibbons to name a few.

 
 
 

PLANNING AN ITINERARY

 

Its proximity to Miri makes this an ideal destination for those seeking to get away from it all, for a few days or over the weekend. A 40m tree tower provides spectacular views of the dipterocarp forest.  Get a closer look at the forest canopy and get acquainted with the various species of flora.  This is also a good opportunity to do a spot of bird watching.

 

Go jungle trekking along the forest trails in this species rich forest and immerse yourself in nature's ways.  With the rich variety of species around, you're bound to discover something new and exciting along the way.  For the uninitiated, a suspension bridge adds to the fun and adventure.  At the end of it all awaits a rocky pool of such enchanting green that you simply cannot resist.  So take a dip in the cool, emerald green depths and come out totally refreshed.
