Attractions & Things to Do

Hiking
The star attraction at Lambir Hills National Park is hiking. If you want to go in for a full hiking experience, it will take you a minimum of four hours or maybe more depending upon physical fitness. Best time to start the hike is around 8:00 AM. Remember to follow the signs and marks on the trails. If ambiguity persists, refer to the guide available at the counter.
Trail guides can be hired to take you to the best spots through convenient routes. It is strongly recommended to go in a group for hiking instead of opting for solo hiking. Do visit the Latak Waterfall as the climb to this one is relatively easy which makes it more popular amongst hikers. Another waterfall that is a hikers’ favourite and is worth visiting is the Nibong Waterfall followed by Pantu Waterfall. If you are an experienced hiker, you can consider climbing all the way up to the summit of Bukit Lambir. However, be very careful of stingy ants that accompany you all the way through the trails. 

Picnic
If there is something that the visitors to the Lambir Hills National Park really enjoy is having a picnic with family and friends. At the very entrance of the Park Headquarter, there is a picnic table and bench where people can sit and enjoy the view.

Barbecue
Visitors love barbequing here at the Lambir Hills National Park as they bask in the splendour of mighty forest cover. Barbeque grills and gazebos are available here on a first come first serve basis. 

Tree Tower
The twenty two-metre-high tree tower near the Park Headquarter is a must-see. 
Another unique feature about the hike is the tree ladders that one can find almost everywhere in the Lambir Hills National Park. These ladders take one all the way up to the forest canopy which enables the visitors to soak in the magnificent view from the treetop. However, this is not meant for the faint-hearted as one is expected to climb a sky embracing tree without any safety measures. People scared of heights too should definitely omit climbing the tree ladders.
