Gunung Mulu National Park

The Park is dominated by the sandstone mass of Gunung (mountain) Mulu which rises to 2,376m. To the west of Mulu and its flanks lies a band of "Melinau" limestone which forms the lesser peaks of Gunung Api and Gunung Benarar. To lower slopes are covered in dense tropical rainforest which rises up to meet the montage forest of Mulu's upper slopes.


Niah National Park

Some 40,000 years ago, the Niah Great Cave sheltered human life. Here lies the oldest human remains in Southeast Asia, along with many other relics of prehistoric man. Today the cave is home only to bats, swiftlets and other specially adapted forms of life. However, a few but locals still venture into the dark interior to collect guano (bird and bat droppings used as fertilizer) and bird's nest.


Similajau National Park

About 45 minutes drive from Bintulu town, Similajau has emerald water, corel reefs, tropical rainforest and long, golden sandy beaches. About 24 species of mammals and 185 species of birds have been recorded in Similajau. A noteworthy reptile, Saltwater Crocodile, is also found here.


Bako National Park

Situated 37 km from Kuching, this is Sarawak's oldest national park. Its coastline consists of numerous magnificent and secluded beaches bound by cliffs carved by wave erosion into an incredible array of shapes and patterns. Bako's main attraction is it's plants diversity. Vegetation types range from lowland dipterocarp forests to almost desert-like scrub (Padang) on the plateau. Amongst this plant life are the strangest carnivorous plants (pitcher plants, sundews, bladderworts).


Lambir Hills National Park

The Lambir Hills are visible from Miri (about some 30 minutes drive away) as a chain of steep sandstone hills bound by rugged cliffs. The higher ridges and slopes, up to the peak at 450m, are covered by heath forest while the lower slopes and valleys are dominated by huge stands of mixed dipterocarp forest. The ground flora consists of an unusual variety of palms which give an exotic feel to the park. Plant enthusiasts will be interested to know that Lambir Hills may well be the most species rich forest in the world.


Semenggoh Wildlife Rehabilitation Centre

This Centre is a temporary home for various endangered wildlife of Sarawak especially Orang Utans which have been rescued from captivity. Here, they are trained and conditioned to learn back their natural instincts of living independently in their natural environment. However, some are too old for release, thus kept for educational purposes instead. This are is half an hour's drive from Kuching. A permit can be obtained at the National Parks Booking Office in Kuching.


Batang Ai National Park

This beautiful national park is home to one of the world's most endangered species, the Orang Utan. Besides being home to many other protected wildlife like the hornbills and gibbons, it is also the water catchment area to Sarawak's only artificial lake.


Kubah National Park

The Park is composed primarily of sandstone, siltstone and shale. The Plateau Sandstone formation has built a scarp-bounded sandstone range which includes Mt. Serapi, Mt. Selang and Mt. Sendok. The presence of at least three bands of hardened sandstone between the 150m and 400m contour lines causes the head-waters of most streams, which are crystal clear and fast flowing to flow over a series of waterfalls.


Tanjung Datu National Park

This is the newest and also the smallest park in the state. It is strategically important as it lies at the westernmost tip of Sarawak. Because its mountain ranges closely embrace the shore, the rivers are small, swift flowing, crystal clean and clear of all pollution. Here lies Sarawak's most beautiful beaches. The sea is crystal clear and the sand is just magnificent.
