Lambir Hills National Park is probably the world's most complex and diverse forest eco-system. In a total area of just 6,952 hectares, experts have found what appears to be the greatest level of plant biodiversity on the planet. It is not only plant life that is diverse and plentiful at Lambir - 237 different species of birds (at the last count), flying squirrels, wild pigs, gibbons, many different types of monkey, various species of deer, and untold insects and other invertebrates, all combine to create Lambir's rich biological kaleidoscope. <br /><br />As if all this abundant nature wasn't enough, Lambir's unusual geology has created dozens of sparkling waterfalls and bathing pools scattered about the rainforest. Take into account how compact and conveniently located Lambir is, and you have one of the most accessible and enjoyable national parks in all of Malaysia. Lambir's 6,952 hectares of sandstone hills have created some very rugged forest terrain, rising to over 450 metres in places, and covered with lowland dipterocarp and heath forests. This unique topography and environment have made Lambir a major centre for rainforest research, with scientists from Japanese and American universities permanently stationed in the park. It has also made Lambir a major resource for Malaysia's environmental education programme, and weekend visitors will often bump into groups of trainee teachers or high school students studying the forest floor or the rainforest canopy.
