Description

Niah National Park is home to some of the oldest caves in Southeast Asia! Rumors have it that these caves are still inhabited by ghosts of the native Penan tribesmen. These Penan tribesmen use to collect edible bird nests to make a living. They primarily collected nests from swiftlets, these nests are still popular to Chinese gourmets now. Caves in Niah National Park are full of history, relics, and ancient artifacts! Check out the Moon Cave, also known as Gan Kira. Note that flashlights are necessary as the cave is pretty much encompassed in darkness. The Moon Cave also contains fascinating rock formations. Another attraction is the Painted Cave (GuaKainHitam), visitors will be able to see ancient drawings on the walls. This cave contains well preserved graves, bats, and the Niah Cave gecko.
