Lambir Hills National Park is a popular destination for the locals especially during the weekends and public holidays as it is only 30 minutes drive away from the town of Miri. It is an ideal park for picnic and jungle trekking as there are many waterfalls and well-marked trails in this dipterocarp rain forest. It covers an area of about 6,949 hectares and was given the park status in 1975.
The most popular waterfall is the Latak Waterfall which is about 15 minutes walk from the park headquarters. It falls from a height of 25 m into a large pool which is good enough for swimming. Basic changing facility and picnic shelters are provided for the convenience of visitors.
The Nibong waterfall is accessible by 2 hours trek along the Pantu Trail. Other waterfalls are Pantu Waterfall, Pancur Waterfall, Tengkorong Waterfall and Dinding Waterfall.
