Stayed in the hostel dorm with fan for 41RM incl breakfast to choose from 7 different dishes, hot shower, drying/laundry room, in the middle of the djungle. Clean and nice. Restaurant was a bit more expensive (big water bottle 6,50RM, beer 9,60RM) but tasty.
What we recommand:
Fly there from KK or Kuching with MASwings (Miri isn't worth a visit). Stay in the NP hostel dorm or at the nearby Mulu River Lodge for 3 nights.
Do the valley-loop-walk on your first aftenoon (no costs, no guides necessary) and take a dip at the paku waterfall. Here are no leeches but the trail could be muddy (flipflops or sandals will do).
2nd day: go for the cleawater- and wind-cave at 8:45 or 9:15 am (guided, 50RM p.P.) and bring a swimsuit to refresh in the river after the tour before heading back to the headquarter at about 2pm.
In the afternoon you could hire a boat with some others for 150RM to visit the longhouse and iban village. Or have a rest and go to the tree-tower in the late afternoon to spot some birds.
3rd day: go for the deer- and lang-cave including the garden-of-eden-walk and bat-observatory. Defenitly worth the small money (shouldn't be more than 100 RM p.P.) but bring leech-socks or rubber-boots and swimwear. This will take the whole day.
That's it. Have fun!More
