For the keen walker and gentle stroller alike, Lambir Hills National Park offers a wide range of visual and aural experiences.

There are currently around 9 or 10 marked tracks open to the public with four of them leading to waterfalls and two leading to the summits of hills. Walks range from 1.6 kms to over 20 kms. I have walked all of the trails in the park and enjoyed every one.

At weekends local families bring their children with picnic baskets and walk to the nearest waterfall or the first shelter to enjoy a day out whilst the keener walkers, often ex-pats from Miri or Brunei, tackle the more severe routes. Occasionally the park is is used by the Hash House Harriers for one of their jungle runs.

The park consists of rolling hills covered with mixed dipterocarp forest and claims to be the most ecologically diverse area in the world. There are over 1050 different species of tree, each tree providing a habitat for over 1000 species of insect life.

For the non-biologist the forest provides a wealth of jungle sounds and many of the insect species can be spotted. Mammals are a little more elusive and will normally only be spotted if you walk quietly alone. There is overnight accommodation available at a reasonable price.
