It's a place you must not miss when you come to Malaysia. You can either take a light trip just to visit the caves by walking on the nice and flat pavements or to explore the caves by crawling and get yourself wet and dirty. It's very easy to go to Mulu. All you need is to fly from Miri.... More

Review for the natural park only, I did a separate review for the hotel. We arrived here with not many expectations and we were blown away by the wilderness of the area. The park has been made accessible on different adventure levels. So everyone no mater the age can enjoy it. There are many kilometres of wooden paths/walkways that are... More

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

It will be one of the trip that you will remember and be the highlight of the year. It is a place that you will... 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.
