Bintulu and Niah caves

After leaving Pangau longhouse we backtracked our way to Sibu, turned east and went to Bintulu, a small town with lively day and night markets, and on to Niah caves. pictures/bintulu1-1.jpg pictures/bintulu2-1.jpg
pictures/niah1-1.jpg The caves were impressive but unfortunately photographing inside them was mostly beyond my means. On the left is a view from outside the caves proper, on the right a sample of the route inside. pictures/niah3-1.jpg
On the right you can see some prehistoric paintings protected from tourists by barbed wire, and the cave's exit as seen from within. pictures/niah5-1.jpg pictures/niah4-1.jpg
