Explore Mulu National Park – Show Caves
Deep in the heart of Borneo lies Sarawak’s Gunung or Mount Mulu National Park, one of the most spectacular natural phenomenon on earth. Over millennia the flow of water draining off the slopes of Gunung Mulu to the sea has carved deep gorges through the Limestone Mountains forming a complex network of vast caves.
The Mulu National Park covers an area of 52,864 hectares of Borneo’s primary tropical forest containing a high diversity of species including many of Borneo endemics and threatened species. The large cave passages and chambers also become a platform for an impressive wildlife spectacle as millions of cave swiftlets and bats take flight in wonderfully organized formation as they exit their daytime roost in search of food as dusk falls.

Worlds Largest Cave Passage
Upon an early arrival at Mulu Airport, your guide will meet you and escort you to your choice of accommodation. Head to the Mulu National Park Headquarters for registration. In the afternoon, 2 pm visit the Deer cave, the worlds largest cave passage & Langs cave, quite small in comparison but amongst the nooks and crannies hide many secrets for you to discover, after exploring these caves, head out to the bat observatory to watch the bats’ exodus from the cave entrance at dusk (best during fine weather). Walk back along the same way towards your accommodation and dinner.
After breakfast, get aboard a longboat and travel along the river to the Batu Bungan Penan Settlement. Spend some time engaging with the once nomadic Penan people here and perhaps shop for some exquisitely made handicrafts here. (The market here is closed on Sundays) Continue your journey by longboat to Wind and Clearwater Caves. Enjoy a picnic lunch at the Clearwater rest huts followed by a refreshing swim at the Clearwater spring. Get back on to your longboat and enjoy your river journey back to the HQ. Then off to Mulu Airport for your departing flight.
