Lambir hills is a relatively small national park of 7000 ha located 32km south of Miri, along the road to Niah. The park was set up in 1975 and covers a small rainforest area surrounded by plantations. Due to its small size it can't support a population of larger mammals such as bears or large monkeys.
The park is primarily a recreation area for the local population and as such offers a total of 13 forest trails ranging from 0.8km to 6.3km in length. In addition to beautiful rainforest the park also contains a number of waterfalls. The Lambir hills national park extends between 150 and 465m of altitude.
The Borneo Tropical Rainforest resort is a private resort located in the park. It offers accomodation and recreation facilities for tourists (including a waterpark with games for chidren).
