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 …
... weiß besser, was ich will, und so sind jetzt unsere nächsten zwei Wochen mit qualvollen Touren durch den hiesigen Dschungel, Höhlenwanderungen und Klettetsteigen verplant. Um ehrlich zu sein: Es gibt schlimmeres!Den Rest des Tages verbringen wir mit etwas Bier und dem Buchen notwendiger Flüge. Und Essen.
Wir sind, dank der Planung, mindestens die nächsten 5 Tage weg. Im schlechtesten Fall können wir die nächsten 10 oder 11 Tage nicht ...
... together in a single building! I really couldn't have arrived in Borneo at a better time to see the Longhouses. It is the middle of Gawai Dayak (Known as the harvest or rice wine festival for us backpackers). Essentially it is a very communal celebration during which there is lots of eating, drinking (Rice wine in particular), as well as a few (To our eyes at least) peculiar traditional customs. One of the main ones revoled around a ceremonial tree. ...
... The dinner is excellent and the staff, as always here, very friendly. The drive back is a little less fun in the dark, the roads are pretty uneven and some are not marked, which makes it difficult to stay on your lane. By the time we get back Margaux and Amelie are asleep. Tomorow we plan an easy day at the beach. The plan was to drive down to the Niah Cave but we have seen so many caves already and apparently if you have seen the caves at Mulu, what we did, it is not a must to ...
... From here we set off on the second trail, the main one to Bukit Pantu, the nearest peak to the Park HQ and some one and a half hours in length, from the waterfall.
Having gone some distance, just under 2.7 km to be precise, the sky darkened and the heavens opened, making sure-footing very tricky indeed.
Fortunately we had invested in new waterproof capes, costing less than a pound each – but we might as well have not ...
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).
