We stayed 2 nights in a park Garden of Eden chalet - massive wood bungalow with two huge bedrooms, 4 beds each, plus en suite, huge sitting room, huge unused kitchen. Cafeteria was OK - pancakes for breakfast; fresh lime juice was good, a picnic lunch if you ask and wifi available. Caves are well presented with explanation boards, walked... More

We visited Mulu many years ago, but the experience was so unforgettable that it has stayed with us. The attraction of Mulu was not just its myriad caves and river boat rides (and the glimpses of daily life along the banks), but the fact that here is one of the places where, if one is lucky enough, could witness the...

Be prepared that your Lonely Planet or Rough Guides travel books will be out of date. The Headhunter's Trail is no longer able to be booked through Mulu Park HQ, although asking any guide or guesthouse should be able to find you a tour. We booked through D'Cave Homestay with Robert and he provided us with an affordable 2-night trip.... More

This day trip makes for an excellent adventure--be prepared. You walk all the way through the massive Deer Cave, which is mostly very tall but requires considerable climbing on rocks than can be large, wet, slippery and/or covered in bat guano. Your feet (no open toed shoes allowed) will also get wet, as you walk through the river both inside... More

Mulu requires an effort to get to. Easy daily flights from Miri but you are already racking up the cost. The caves have been carefully organised with good walkways and lighting. A torch is useful. The bat exodus from Deer cave is remarkable and we went twice. Clearwwater cave was for me the best. You can picture clearly why it... More

The nature and caves in Mulu is easily 5 stars. The park management is professional and very safety conscious, too much so in my opinion. To my great irritation I was refused to access the adventure caving because the guide judged me to be 99% ready (thereby not 100% ready which was required) on the previous Valley of Eden day... More

Sadly we only stayed here from 2 nights and 3 days, you can easily stay here for a complete week if not more. The National Park is well set out and organised, helpful guides, clear and frequent signage of various attractions. We stayed in one of the garden bungalows "Palm Bungalow" it had a/c, hot water, shower, bathroom, fan and... More

We had a great time at the Gunung Mulu National Park. We stayed at the HQ in the dorm room and although the room was massive it has been designed to allow a certain degree of privacy. The beds were confortable and the bathrooms were clean (except for some jungle bugs - but hey we are in the jungle). We... More
