We flew from Miri into Mulu and what an incredible flight it was. It was quite magical flying over dense jungle, winding rivers and mist shrouded mountains. Helen our wonderful host from Mulu backpackers homestay just across the road was there to greet us, I can't find this listed on Tripadvisor but would highly recommend it. It was a 10... More

This place is a must go if you really like nature and love hiking. Many local plants can be seen during the hike and it really was an amazing feeling to be surrounded by the sounds of nature. During the evening for about 6pm, you can stay and watch the hundreds of bats swarming out of the cave which is... More

We really enjoyed our 5 days in Mulu National Park. Flying in is surprisingly cheap, especially if booked a little in advance, and not a bad way to get between various places such as Kuching and KK. The park seemed much better managed than some we visited in Borneo (e.g. Mt Kinabalu). There is a fantastic visitor centre, with an... More

Before visiting Mulu Caves, I thought "a cave is a cave", what is the big deal? I was dead, dead wrong, never in my wildest imagination that such grandeur of mother nature could actually be possible. To say that I am impressed is grossly an understatement. I was totally blew away, one must actually be there to experience the "Wow!!... More

All visitors must register at the centre prior to the caves and Are exploring. Need to know where you want to go and what you want to do, to avoid buying the wrong tickets. The exhibition and also theatre information are adequate for visitors to have some idea prior to explore. Staffs are friendly, internet package can be bought at... More

Great place for a nature trips. I and my wife placed in a bungalow with all amenities. Very liked the walk through the caves and canopy walk. Park staff are very friendly and willing to help. Special thanks to Nina, without which there would have been our walk in the Garden of Eden.

The Mulu National Park is one of the best managed places I have visited. It was an adventure holiday that both my wife and I wanted and Mulu had that in droves. When we arrived the area experienced high water levels due to rain and some activities were cancelled. But the following day the river had subsided substantially and we... More

My husband and I decided to take a break that would be different from our usual lazing about by the beach, stuffing ourselves silly. After much deliberation, we decided on Mulu, which we figured would offer us a chance of doing something totally different. And we were right; it was fun, exhilarating and very tiring! We stayed at the Marriot... More
