3D2N MIRI CITY + LAMBIR HILL + IBAN LONGHOUSE
The Lambir Hills are visible from Miri ( a 30 minute drive away ) as a chain of steep sandstone hills bound by rugged cliffs. The higher ridges and slopes ( up to the park at 450m ) are covered by heath forest while the lower slopes and valleys are dominated by huge stands of mixed dipterocarp forest. The ground flora consists of an unusual variety of palms which give an exotic feel to the park. Plant enthusiasts will be interested to knoe that Lambir Hills may well be the most species rich forest in the world.
Wildlife such as the Borneo gibbon, bearded pig and barking deer can all be found at Lambir Hills. There are also more than a hundred bird species in the park. Lambir's numerous waterfalls attracted many visitors from Miri and Brunei. A 40-meter tree tower provides excellent viewing of the dipterocarp forest and bird watching.
