beautiful bungalows. Good restaurant on premise. Longest canopy walk. Not many bugs. Guides are excellent. Lots of walking, take shoes with good grip. The bats flying out at sunset - not as speculation with many people yelling. Always busy, but with so much going on you still feel like you have the place to yourself. Wifi in office only.

These caves are amazing and all are a bit different - some low with stalagmites and stalagtites and some as high as a cathedral. One has an amazing number of sifts and bats; the latter which all leave at dusk - quite a spectacular sight.

An absolute must do if you are in Borneo. The four show caves were like nothing else I have every see, and I've seen a few caves. The deer cave with the bats is just incredible and photos just don't do this place justice! Each cave is different to the last and all very unique. If you have the time... More

Recently, my wife & I stayed at the Mulu Resort & I went to the caves - 2 the first afternoon & the 2nd 2 the next day. Lang & Deer caves have a relatively easy access, a fairly flat walk of just over 3 ks from the Park Headquarters. Deer Cave is stunning with the huge entrance & the... More

I can not describe how awesome this place is. It's a cave wonderland surrounded by an amazing rainforest. The biodiversity is mind blowing, the night is filled with the sounds of nature at its best. This place has an array of activities and infrastructure to suit everyone. Clearwater cave is a must for adventurers. Dear and Lang cave are jaw... More

I've been to many caves around the world and these caves are pretty unique. Each one is very different and worth the efforts to see them. We got to see 4 caves during our short stay. I can't wait to come back and see more.

I would suggest booking your visit well in advance along with your accommodation as numbers and guides are limited. We had a private guide the whole time which was perfect as we took as long as we liked in each one without feeling we were being rushed or holding someone else up. The guides are great at keeping groups apart... More

Highly recommend the Mulu caves - what a great experience! Some tips: 1) Book ahead of time directly on the park website. This gives you the lowest prices, and also, if you just rock up - expect many of the tours to be sold out! 2) There are a few independent tour co's, but only use them if you can't... More
