Venture into the fantastic caverns of Gunung Mulu National Park, a wondrous green paradise filled with hidden wonders!
MORE ABOUT THIS TOUR
This package offers you the opportunity to venture into the caves at Gunung Mulu National Park. Listed as a UNESCO World Heritage site, the national park is famous for its extensive cave network and unique ecosystems. The caves still hold many untold secrets, and successive expeditions undertaken by the scientific community continue to shed light into this wondrous underworld.
Day 1: Arrival at Mulu
Your adventure begins as you check into Royal Mulu Resort after your arrival at Mulu Airport. Freshen up and prepare yourself for your excursion into the underworld, beginning with a three kilometre afternoon hike through breathtaking rainforest after registering at the park's headquarters. The hike will bring you to the first set of show caves, Lang's Cave, named after the man who introduced the world to the caves in 1978, and Deer Cave, with its spectacular cave entrance, the largest in the world.
One of the main highlights of the day happens at the entrance of Deer Cave just before dusk, when thousands of bats swarm out from within to begin their nightly search for food. Witness this fascinating spectacle before returning to the resort for the night.
Day 2: At Gunung Mulu National Park
Two more caves, Clearwater Cave and the Cave of the Winds, await you on your second day at the national park. A morning boat ride along the Melinau River takes you to the Cave of the Winds, with its beautiful stalagmite and stalactite formations, and then to Clearwater Cave, a long network of underground passages named after the underground river that runs through it. The crystal clear water is inviting and refreshing, so take the opportunity to have a swim while you are there.
Your morning excursion is rounded up with a visit to a settlement of the Penan people, a semi-nomadic indigenous tribe before returning to the resort in early afternoon. Bid Mulu goodbye as you transfer to the airport in the afternoon.
