Caves were more of a "side-trip" on the way to the Pinnacles hike, and exceeded expectations. All the caves were different and it never felt that we we're "caved out!" All the caves involved a fair bit of walking and/or stairs, so would not recommend it for smaller kids. Tripods not allowed in the caves but had no problems using... More

Mulu caves doesn't earn the title for world heritage for nothing. The views in mulu caves are simply amazing. For nature lover, it's a must do list in Miri, Sarawak! The jungle trekking, amazing huge cave, love it!

The national park insists on access with a guide only and the 4 caves we visited over a 2 day period were varied but all relatively large.The Deer cave is the one with 3-5 million bats in residence and has a slight smell of bat droppings. The guided tour is... More

Hiking through the rainforest to get to these caves was unreal. The amount of biodiversity you can see just from a short 3-hour hike is amazing. My tour guide was super sweet and knowledgeable. Be sure to wear comfortable shoes and breathable clothing. Don't forget to bring water, and wear bug repellent as well as sunscreen. Also! Don't forget a... More

I flied from Miri, best option. Stay at least four days, sleep in the hostel, cheap with breakfast included. Do not miss the bats leaving the cave, be there around 5pm. Better book through the internet site.

Mulu Caves is one of a kind. I've visited many caves (being a geologist), but nothing is comparable to Mulu Caves. We visited Deer Cave, Lang Caves, Cave of the wind & Clearwater Cave. All are different,and each took my breath away, try to book your tour in a smaller group. It is best if it can be arranged privately... More

The Deer Caves took my breath away. We signed up for tours with the National Park office. The tours were efficiently organized but some of the groups were rather big (close to 20). The guides are experienced and knowledgeable.
