Park was incredible. No place like it on Earth. Read about it a little before you go and you will appreciate it more. I booked a trip with Tropical Adventure Tours and Do NOT recommend them as our guide was too young and inexperienced. Safety is an issue on the steep climbs and seasoned guides are needed to get you... More

The first thaught that came to my mind when I booked this trip is it going to be boring. Well it is just a cave..so what?? I do have a cave behind my house at my hometown which we use to get water. The journey from KL to Miri is 2Hour and 10Mins. There is only two option to go... More

We went there for three days and two nights and loved it. The caves were just amazing. There was a problem with the reservation as we had the tours booked and confirmed, but after arrival we were told that we are not on the list. After short negotiation and showing them email confirmation we managed to get on half of... More

At first we thought that it would be just a normal rainforest with a few caves. But it turned out to be fantastic. The forest was good and the caves were HUGE!! We were surprised to learn that the largest cave chamber in the world is in our country! The number of tourists here was kinda restricted probably due to... More

Mulu National Park is a staggeringly beautiful place. Pristine rainforest, Deer Cave, the Pinnacles....it's one wonder another. We did couple of days visiting the caves (including watching the bat exodus from Deer - 3 million wrinkle-lipped bats emerging to feed) and then trekked up to see the Pinnacles, before leaving the park on the Headhunters' trail - stopping off for...

We spent two full days exploring the Deer and Lang Caves, and the Clearwater cave, and the Cave of the Winds. We were particularly impressed with the size of the entrance of the Deer cave, which is an overwhelming and awesome sight. The river trip to the Clearwater cave is also a nice change and enjoyable trip. Unlike many other... More

Mulu had a few spectacular experiences. Deer cave’s entrance size (about 150m high and wide) is difficult to convey either by words or pictures, and Clearwater cave’s central cavern produces beautiful reflections off the river running through much of its extent. The boat ride to clearwater cave was also quite beautiful. Both Deer and Clearwater blow away any caves I’ve... More

Had a short but wonderful visit, so glad we took the time to make the time and effort to visit such a special place with the caves.

Just got back from holiday in Borneo. Highlight is definitely Mulu world heritage site. Booking flights, accommodation and tours couldn't be easier. Flew by Maswings from Kuching to Mulu return. Booked everything online. Park staff were most helpful in sorting out accommodation and tours. Just turned up and efficiently checked in by Dan at the Park office. First tour was... More
