walkway in huge natural cave (borneo)


Huge natural cave in the Niah National Park (Borneo).­

The wooden pathway gives an idea of the scale.­ This chamber is about 40m high and 150m wide.­

This is the entrance of the Great Cave.­ It is very large with huge chambers, up to 75m high, and a network of tunnels covering 10 hectares.­

The Great Cave is very large with huge chambers, up to 75m high, and a network of tunnels covering 10 hectares.­ The Niah caves contain archaeological artifacts including boat-shaped coffins, wall paintings and human remains.­

Niah can be reached from the town of Miri in the North of Sarawak.­ A visit to the caves is complicated and takes a lot of time, due to the lack of easy transportation to the site.­ Some day I'll write about this adventure, and what I saw in the caves.­ Stay tuned!
