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

I recently spent 4 nights at Mulu in Longhouse accommodation, which was spacious and comfortable, with some thought to the design (lots of coat hangers to dry wet clothing.) I have only good things to say about the area, the lodge, the organisation of excursions and the guides. I booked via the internet and flew with MASWINGS (very efficient) and... More

We spent nearly three days and two nights in this oasis of natural beauty. The only way to get to this remote location is by plane. We flew in from Kuching (about 1.5 hours flight) and stayed in the Palm Bungalow, which had room for about 3 people. It was perfect for us. Everything felt very clean. Some tips: bring... More

Getting to Mulu is not straight forward but it does have a functioning airport. The short journey by MAS wings from Miri to Mulu over the dense forest with the lone river snaking along makes for a refreshing introduction to the tropical ecosystem we are about to witness. Stayed at the Mulu national Park with great accommodations and good food.There... More

Spent three days here and was most impressed with the way the park was managed. Unlike a lot of Malaysia there was a distinct lack of rubbish and it was noticeable the guides picking up anything they saw. The park is well worth the visit - it is managed by an Australian and the quality of the local guides i... More

This is a must-see, must-do experience, especially for Malaysians! One of our few World Heritage sites - and so incredibly unique! Firstly, the park is managed professionally. From proper park guides (a must!) to the quality of the trails (very well maintained) including inside the caves, and especially the canopy walk. Its world-class quality. We spent a whole day starting... More

Very nice place to see. 3D2N tour includes visits of 4 caves (spectacular), boat trip, jungle walks, seeing millions of bats coming out of the cave (depends on weather), night jungle walk with tremendous ammount of fireflies and many other options. If you are travelling without small kids you can try Pinnacle as well If you are interested in more... More
