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

The National Park Tours are well organised and tour guides are well organised. The walk in the Rain forest are well marked and interesting.

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

Mulu is a a fabulous place to visit if you are in Malaysia. It is maintained ell and plenty of places to walk along fully planked path. The caves are the highlight for us. They are massive and the predictable flow of million or so bats out of the deer cave every evening around 5 pm was a treat. The... More

Mulu to Malaysia is what Uluru is to Australia. En route to Mulu, I met a a traveller from Germany who was on his second trip to Mulu. This is how special this place is. I went to Mulu with my colleague and friends in November last year. We stayed at a homestay not far from Mulu Airport. The area... More
