Lambir Hills National Park, Latak Waterfall Exploration with Wilson Chin at Miri, Borneo


This is the Lambir Hills National Park, I visited the place 2 years ago (click to read), and last trip I did not went to any of the waterfall, but just to the summit. And this trip is a bit relax, as I take my time to explore around, and chilling at the famous Latak Waterfall.


Its just an easy 20 minutes trek from the Park HQ, when my brother and I reached the waterfall, we saw the tall waterfall with little amount of water flowing down. I guess this might be due to the dry season.

The water mix with some mud, not very clean. A construction company plans to develop this place, to build villas here and sell to the public. It will be good to be able to own a house near the beach, just that this place is too far away from Kuching city.

Tanjung Datu may be the smallest of Sarawak’s National Parks, at just under 14 sq km, but it is also one of the most beautiful.

Along the coast line, there are a few sea turtle trails, they dug holes to lay their eggs. The park are running the Turtle Project all year long, and the rangers will collect the egg, record it down, and put in here to make sure that the eggs are safe. After the hatching are born, they will release it back to the sea.

The Kuching Adventure Team, on day two we are going to the Pasir Antu Laut Trail a 2.7KM passes parallel to the beach and through foreshore vegetation, to Tanjung Antu Laut, a picturesque beach where a clear freshwater streams flow around big polished granite boulders into the ocean. The trail then turns inland, and back through mixed dipterocarp forest, crossing several small creeks and ending back at park HQ.

4 baby sharks swim around the coast, so I'm trying my luck to take their picture, but can't get a good one. If I bring my polarize filter lens I will be able to take clear shoot of the baby shark.

Sea turtle swiming slowly to the Talang Talang Besar Island to lay egg, good luck turtle, wishing you all the best!!!
Panorama_Pulau_Talang_Besar
The Talang Talang Besar Island, this is a national park. But its a restricted area, and its mainly for sea turtle to come here to lay eggs. What the forestry did is good, this can prevent people to come and steal the eggs, and endanger the sea turtle population.
Panorama_Pulau_Talang_Kecil
This is the Talang Talang Kecil island, just opposite the Talang Besar island. I heard its also a restricted area, and reserve for sea turtle to lay their eggs.
