Went for a light hike but it turned into an unexpected jungle trekking experience!
Aug 2020 • Friends
We went with the intention to have a nice picnic next to the waterfalls but in the end the waterfalls have been closed off! And please be aware that this is strictly suitable for jungle trekking purposes, especially for those with some hiking experience to ensure a pleasant hike. There are some parts on the Pantu Trial that was very steep that requires a bit of stamina and since the path wasn't very well-maintained, a pair of shoes with good traction is highly recommended. We were quite disappointed that we weren't able to access the waterfall but it was still nice to be able to see it along the hike.

Around 50 minutes drive from Miri city to reach the park with area over 6900 hectares.
Interesting to those holding the research as more than 240 species of birds, deer ,insects and etc waiting for you. Natural waterfalls are also appeared on your sight during the trip hours.

Nice visit
Feb 2020
I spent half a day visiting Lambir Hills NP.
It was a pleasant hike up to the waterfall/swimming hole.
There were little shelters dotted around which would have been great for a picnic.
Swimming in the waterhole was fun (luckily I had water shoes - otherwise, I don't think I'd have fancied it).
I only saw 3 other people whilst I was in the Park.
I enjoyed it.
Happy to recommend.

Summit bukit lambir
Feb 2020 • Solo
My first time visiting this park. I caught a grab from Miri to arrive at
8am which I had understood was the park opening time. The office to register and pay to enter park however didn’t open the day I visited until 8:30am. Hikers supposed to be back from longer trails by 4pm.
I chose to do one of the hardest walks to the top of Bukit Lambir. I was looking for a challenge and it certainly was.
I found this hike harder than the pinnacles in nearby mulu. I do not recommend this hike for beginners. The final trail to the summit has lots of ropes and more technical sections.
The trail is mostly shaded but was still very hot. I drank in excess of 3 litres of water but still ended up very sick with bad heat exhaustion. I needed a trip to the hospital that evening for a drip. When hiking this trail I would recommend taking along some sort of rehydration salts to add to your water. Carry plenty of food...
Despite my issues with too much heat I had a very lucky day in terms of wildlife
Sightings. Perhaps because I was the only person attempting the trail that day.
I managed to see the giant flying squirrels in a couple of places. Several groups of black monkeys and one larger orange coloured monkey near the river.
I hope to come back to visit this park but would probably spend my time enjoying the wildlife
on the yellow trail rather than going to the summit again.

Tough hiking
Jul 2019 • Couples
Lovely park with we signposted trails however some of the trails were fairly hard going. Very steep and sloppy in places. We had to watch our timing because although some trails were short they took much longer than expected because of the trail conditions. The waterfall near the HQ was easy get to and beautiful.
Worth a visit. Beautiful butterflies.

Sarawak’s most accessible National Park
Sep 2019 • Couples
We drove from Miri and the journey is 31kilometers with the Park Head Quarters on the right hand side just off the main road.
Due to the construction of the Pan Borneo highway it is a bit messy to navigate the road and slippery during rainy days.
Entrance fee for locals is RM 10.00 and RM 20 for foreigners.
The first waterfall is just 10 minutes walk away, followed by the main waterfall a bit further down the trail.
At the Latak waterfall there are toilets and changing rooms as well as huts with benches and tables. We went on a public holiday and all the huts were occupied with people cooking in a wok or doing BBQ. Quite a few people swam in the shallow part of the pool formed at the bottom of the water fall.
Due to the noise and number of people we dicided to continue climbing and reached the Nibong waterfall where we had our picnic lunch. It is quite a small waterfall with nothing much to see. We only met 2 other tourists who came back from the mountain top.
Lambir National Park was very clean but there were not animals or birds to be heard or seen. I understand that the local wildlife has been deleted due to poaching and encroachment by illegal logging.
It is a pity that the tall lookout tower built around a very tall tree is closed as most of the timber has fallen off.
For people who want to have a swim and picnic, the first few waterfalls along the trail can be reached very easily even by kids and the elderly.
To climb further up one needs to be reasonably fit and will be rewarded by a peaceful and easy jungle walk.

Don‘t expect too much
Jun 2019
The jungle is beautiful - lot of plants, ants and butterflies. But the cascades are not that big / spectacular as the pictures promise. But the people are very helpful and friendly.
How to get there? Load the app ‚Grab‘ (like uber) and ask the driver to stay for an hour - thats enough to see the most important waterfall no 3 - and go back to Miri. (31 ringgit one way)

Day trip into the nature
Jun 2018 • Family
A very good place for gathering i.e. picnic, BBQ etc. Some may opt for challenging hiking and unlock more fascinating nature's wonder deeper into the jungle like waterfalls, very old and big trees and many other plants and animals.

Nice waterfall.
Apr 2019 • Family
Nice stroll to waterfall. I'm an experienced hiker and we took the easiest route w kids 6yrs and 3yrs.

It was dry season so the falls were quite little.

Rented a car as we wanted to do tusan beach in the same day. $126/day for a small 4 door.

Hotel told us half day taxi to and from lambir was $160rm.

Limited cell reception in the park (Digi).
