Niah Caves aren’t the biggest in Malaysia, but they may be the most interesting. The anthropological and archeological activity associated with the caves is quite fascinating. They have 40,000 years worth of human history. The oldest modern human remains in southeast Asia were found at Niah, making it one of the most important archaeological sites in the world. The caves at Niah are still used by the indigenous people to collect guano and bird’s nests for trading.
