Borneo Break: Walkway to Niah Cave

Hiking up Niah Cave is easy! You just have to walk the wooden pathway! Of course, you have to pay an RM1 fee to take a boat across the river first and if you are lucky like we were, you would have bumped into some locals carrying guano home too!There is a museum across the river and if it is open, you may want to spend sometime there but it would not take up much of your time. The museum is rather small and in our case it was closed closed. So, we just had a brisk walk along the wooden walkway all the way to Niah Cave. If you are looking for nature and some solitude, this is the place to be. It was pretty quiet walking especially with just Amber and me and we did meet people who having started their journey early, were making their way home. It was almost lunch time when we made our hike and yes, you don't need a map to help you get around; so, there was no point splurging RM 5 for a thin, uninformative book from the administrative office. Just walk along the wooden walkway and read the signboards; it should be quiet and safe...

Across the river...

It may be a lonely journey...







...but you may find someone who shares your pleasure...
