Photo: The famous Niah Cave.

The Niah National Park
The Niah National Park, Sarawak is the site of the Niah Caves, one of the largest limestone caves in the world. The Park covers 3,102 hectares (7,756 acres) of forest and limestone. The peak of Gunung Subis, which is 394 meters high (1,294 ft), dominates the landscape.

One may explore the vastness of the Great Cave, where archaeologists have discovered evidence of man's existence in Borneo dating as far back as 40,000 years ago. On display are the skull of a young Homo Sapien, some tools made out of stone, bone and iron, and cave drawings. Anthropologists established that the Niahian lived in the Caves from 40000 BC right up to 1400 AD.

P/S-The Niah National Park is world famous for the oldest human remains in South-East Asia found in its Great Caves dating back some 40,000 years. The archeologists also found fragments of pottery, stone tools, ornaments and a splendid set of wall painting of red-haematite depicting activities of stick-like men with hunting weapons and boats. The work of the unknown artist, estimated to be 1000 years old, still beckon travellers from around the world.

Yeah, I heard the caves in Borneo are among the most beautiful in the world. BTW, the famous Java man is roughly 700,000 years old.
