 Niah National Park


     Niah is one of Sarawak's smaller National Park, but it is certainly one of the most important, and has some of the most unusualvisitor attractions.The Park's main claim to fame is its role as one of the birth places of civilisation in the region. The oldest modern human remains discovered in South east Asia were found at Niah, making the Park one of the most important archaeological sites in the world.


     Yet there is much more to Niah than archaeology. A huge cave swarming with bats and swiftlets, the thriving local economy based on bird's nest and guano, ancient cave painting, a majestic rainforest, abundant plants and animal life, all these and more make up the geological, historical and environmental kaleidoscope that is Niah.


     What is most interesting about Niah, however is the continued human presence over tens of thousands of years, and the sophistication of the societies that gradually developed there.


    The Painted Cave, as its name suggest, houses detailed wall paintings depicting the boat journey of the dead into the after-life. The meaning of the painting was explained by the discovery of a number of 'death-ships' on the cave floor, boat shape coffins containing the remains of the deceased.
