Niah National Park Temporarily Closed for Repairs

MIRI – Niah National Park is officially closed to the public starting July 24, 2020 for ongoing repair works due to damages caused by a recent heavy downpour.

The heavy downpour on Thursday (July 23) had caused several trees to be uprooted and caused damages to its walkways as well as several other facilities in the park, including the main path to the Great Cave, one of the main caves in the National Park.

A statement posted by Sarawak Forestry Corporation (SFC) on its Facebook page stated that the Niah National Park will be closed until further notice and appreciates the public understanding on the matter.
