Information
Although it is one of Sarawak’s smallest national parks, it is certainly one of the most important and unusual attractions to visitors. What is most interesting about Niah is that one of the main claims to fame is the birthplace of civilization in the region. The oldest modern human remains in Southeast Asia along with many other relics of prehistoric man were discovered about 40,000 years ago, making the park one of the most important archaeological sites in the world. It is worth taking your time and walking quietly along the way, as you may well see some of the park’s wildlife. If you leave the Great cave and return along the plank walk around clouds intermingling, you can see half a million of swiftlets are returning to their nests, whilst half a million bats fly out to forage in the forest. This is one of Niah’s most spectacular sights which represent only a small niche in the earth complex ecosystem.

Ba’Kelalan is one of Sarawak’s top highlands destination offering nature and adventure experiences. There are about nine villages that make up Ba’Kelalan in the Maligan Highlands, in Limbang Division, Sarawak. The villagers here belong to the Lun Bawang tribe, with a population of about 1,000. Situated about 3,000 feet above sea level, such elevation gives Ba’Kelalan the privilege of having temperate weather ranging from 25 degrees celcius during the the day and at night the temperature drops to around 15 degrees celcius. Ba’Kelalan produces the famous Adan rice (also known as Bario Rice) and mountain salt, obtained from the nearby hills.
