Although only partially explored, ,the vast caves of Gunung Mulu National Park are believed to be one of the world’s largest and the four caves offer visitors an unforgettable encounter with nature at its best.
Day 1: Depart Miri for flight to Mulu. Transfer by native longboat to park headquarters and proceed on foot along a wooden plankwalk through virgin rainforest for 45 minutes to the entrance of Deer Cave, the world’s largest cave passage. Packed lunch is served at the Bat Observatory near the cave, including the ‘Garden of Eden’- a green sunlit oasis of plant life deep inside the cave. Proceed to Lang’s Cave to view some of the world’s most spectacular cave features, including stalactites, rock flows, helitites and rock corals. Return to Deer Cave at sunset to observe the millions of bats flying out of the cave, followed by a night jungle walk through the tropical rainforest. Dinner and accommodation will be at the Royal Mulu Resort, Government Chalet or Mulu Lodge.
Day 2: After breakfast, journey by longboat along the Melinau River to the Wind Cave, and explore the King’s Room, a remarkable display of spectacular stalagmites. Continue by boat to the Clearwater Cave, where a tributary of Melinau emerges from deep underground. Explore the Cleanwater Cave, the longest cave passage in South East Asia and view the rock formations of the Young Lady Cave which are the subject of the legends of the local Berawan people. Return to the riverbank for picnic lunch. After lunch, return via longboat to Mulu Airport for your flight back to Miri.
