  • Have been going to Niah caves from time to time over the past 40 years. Dont be put off by the slight difficulty of getting to the Park HQ or by the lack of accommodation in the Park or Batu Niah...  more »
  • Disappointed with staff's service. Wrong reservation made for us. We made booking 1 week early, but staff put us at the wrong slot. So, we drove 2 hours from Bintulu for nothing.  more »

  • Great experience overall, majestic big natural caves, do note the high amounts of birds & bats droppings. Deeper caves could be slightly challenging for some. Very good trails though, 90% with wooden platform, just steep stairs in some areas.
  • An incredible gem only 90min drive from Miri. A bit difficult to get to, but absolutely worth every minute of time. The cave is enormous! Lots of breathtaking views inside and around the caves. A must-see if you visit Miri.
