143. River taxi
In the afternoon we continued by bus to Batu Niah; the village nearest to the Niah Caves. As soon as we got of the bus, a boat driver asked if we wanted to go to the camp. It was a short but fun ride, and we kept our eyes open for crocodiles, but that was probably only a tale to frighten tourists. The water in the river was really dirty, mostly because of the logging taking place in the inland. On our trek in the Kelabit Highlands, we passed one of the more recently logged areas and it was not a pretty sight (p. 194).
