mushrooms, moss, lichen and more. A number of wild animals are to be seen in the park including monkeys,
bats, sun bear and pangolins. These animals are mostly to be seen around when you are walking deep into

you to choose from. From a 15 minutes trail to an all day long trek, you can select which best suits you.
There are quite a few attractions in the park. You can have a view above 70 feets by climbing up to
a tree tower, explore the antique oil well, have a cold swim in Pantu Waterfalls and of course, you
can too, climb to the summit of Lambir with the height of 1525 feets. Lambir Hills National Park is
definitely the best place for you to have a closer look and appreciate the power of nature. At the
same time, you can have more knowledge on the species of flora and fauna there as they actually labeled
some of them with their names.
Accommodations there are affordable and nice. They offer chalet units and also camping sites.
