This place is truely amazing! The nature is breathtaking beautiful and overwhelming and the park is well organized with a variety of guided tours from easy to wildly challenging. Guides are good but not all as talkative as you could want. Maybe it's the culture or maybe it is not obvious to locals how different it is for a viking... More

First things first: an ATR-72 took us from Miri to Mulu National Park, deep in the heart of Sarawak. Flying is the only viable option to get here and looking out the plane window I can easily understand why.

There are some very unique things to see here, the most well-known ones being caves and bats. But my favorite part was actually the insects... We went on a guided night walk, and the guide pointed out so many enormous insects that I never would have noticed on my own. And the insect sounds at night are incredibly beautiful, like... More

Do allow time to have cancelled flights there and back - if it's raining then that can be a problem. However, once there, do as many caves as you can - but you need good fitness. I'd recommend you not to try to do more than a half day tour, if you have children or are not super fit. You... More

A great place to unwind. You can visit the bat cave or do the trek or go for the boat ride to the waterfalls. But it is also a great place to just relax, read a book and look at the stars. Easy to get to from Miri, do stay in the cottages which is inside the park HQ, you... More

Was just blown away by the beauty and size of the caves. We were also lucky enough to see the exodus of the bats. They came out just after six even after a light drizzle. They usually do not come out when it rains apperently...
