Mulu cave is definitely a must go place. It doesn't get the name of world heritage for nothing. The view in all the caves are simply amazing, excellent place for travelers who love to explore the nature.

The people who guide tourists round around are excellent and apart from the caves there are the pinacles and a striking waterfall to visit while in the area. I did not stay in them but there are lodges avajlable to rent.As the whole area is deep in jungle the access is only by air or river generally although there are... More

a truly must-see at least once in a lifetime! the caves are amazing; the canopy walk (longest in the world) is beautiful; the bat exodus in the evening is phenomenal. The entire area is kept original and anything that is built, like the resort, is tastefully done without intruding into nature. We stayed at the National Park resort which was... More

The initial check-in process was good on day 1. Next day we moved on to Camp 5 before we returned 3 days later to re-check in at 10.40am. Was told to wait for 2 hours as room wasn't ready. Unfortunately this was drag on until 2pm which is supposed to be check-in time. Keys given but lodge (Longhouse 2) was... More

Personally I've visited Mulu on three separate occasions in the recent years. It ticks all the boxes if you are a nature lover: scenery, wildlife, ambiance. For a westerner, being able to visit the jungles of Sarawak with relative ease is a whole experience in itself. It's a world heritage site and meets all four of the UNESCO natural criteria... More

Nice around the park HQ with great caves and some spectacular scenery although the jungle walks are very hot and you don't see that much either scenery or wildlife. Also, quite a few of the places are inaccessible except on foot. The Pinnacles climb was good but tough and only serious walkers/scramblers should attempt it.

Such an amazing place. It is jungle so it's not easy to see animals. Plants and insects are fabulous! Do be careful where you set your hands as you can get a stingy from insects on the handrails. Be sure to sign up for trips to the caves. The canopy walk if fabulous too. This is a very special place... More

The journey itself is good for those who love nature. We catch a flight from Miri to Mulu. A longboat ride to Kuala Litut, we stopped by the Clearwater Cave. The cave was so huge and interesting. Hike to Camp 5 about 2 hrs. the 1st 4 to 5 km.. expect some leeches there. If one doesn't want to get... More
