We spent 3 days in Mulu Nationa Park and we wish we could have more time. The first day we arrived we walked along the board walks just meandering and enjoying our surroundings. That night we took a highly anticipated night tour. Unfortunately it had rain heavily prior to the tour so not as much to see as we had... More

We spent three days here with our three young children. 5 day pass into the National park (RM 30 /15) gives access to the park and all its no cost activities. We bought extra cave tours and the night walk. Definitely recommend both. Did not see the bats though as they don't come out if it's going to rain. Can... More

This was an incredible experience and the guides are truly excellent! Be aware that the afternoon flights from Miri do not arrive with enough time to do an afternoon tour, so plan on staying a few days. I didn't think I'd do any of the adventure caving, but in the end I did one of the "intermediate" caves and had... More

One of the best national parks I've ever been to! Extremely organized. Schedules all run on time. Staff are all friendly and clearly well-educated. All trails are well-marked. There is a TON to do here! The caves are spectacular. Deer cave has about 3 million bats - watch them stream out every day around 5:45pm. Other caves are beautiful. Several... More

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

Mulu have everything to offer for a nature lover.

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
