In the morning we left Bintulu by bus, heading for Miri.
Some 30 km from Miri is a small NP located called Lambhir Hills. Just have to inform the bus driver and he made a short stop to let us out, and other tourists letting hop on the bus.
Lambhir Hills has some nice waterfalls amids the jungle, some of which you can swim in. Because …
... national parks, but is one of the most important and much easier to reach than Mulu national park. The park has the record for the oldest human remains discovered in Southeast Asia and is popular with birds nest and guano collectors.
This park can be done on a day trip from Miri, although it's worth staying overnight if you want to visit more than the two main caves.
No guides are required at this park, and little information is ...

Woman's and children heads were more 'valuable' as they were more difficult to find as they were usually hidden away from the marauding warriors. Headhunting went into decline in the 1840's but saw a brief revival when British troops encouraged locals during the Japanese invasion in WW2. So a great part of the local tradition is no longer practiced.

Run around finding a place to stay, then a place to eat, but before we go to bed we need to figure out our transportation for the next day, oh, and maybe we should look into where to stay there so we don't have to wander the streets so much...well, it's worth a try anyways!

TravelPod Member ReviewsMiri Trail Guesthouse
Through the Miri Trail Guesthouse website we booked a package for visiting the Mulu Gunung NP.
To catch our early flight to Mulu we decided to stay at the Miri Trail Guesthouse for one night, convenient 'cause it's just right across the Miri Airport.
Staff was young but friendly. Rooms are very basic: just the bed, no tables or chairs or wardrobe. Most rooms don't have a window and the walls are very thin so you bring your earplugs.
Toilets and showers are down the hall, but clean. No breakfast.
Wi-fi is only available in certain rooms (signal is not strong).
For just one night it was fine for us.
For visiting the city centre you'll have get a cab (we picked one at the airport).
