“Welcome to Mulu Caves”
Reviewed February 17, 2013

The Mulu Caves are simply fantastic. I strongly recommend travels to go there for a look. However, you need to by physically strong to walk to the limestone caves. The water there are so cool..so clean and beautiful. The caves are marvellous. Really beautiful to behold...

“Simply breathtaking.”
Reviewed February 1, 2013 via mobile

The caves are a true wonder. The scale of them has to be seen to be beleived and the wildlife is unlike anything I have seen anywhere in the world.

The caves are easily reached by a wide path and are suprisingly wheel chair friendly.

Photography wise a wide angle lens is a must - maybe even a fish eye if you have one - to capture the sense if scale. Also a tripod to play with long exposures would also be useful.

Well worth a visit.

“Mulu caves and the Pinnacale”
Reviewed January 27, 2013

If you love nature and are reasonably fit, try it. Come experience the delicate cafe formations, the flying bats at dusk, the clear and cool river water, and the lush tropical jungle. Be prepared to walk. Bring along good walking shoes, rain coat or umbrella, torch light and at least drinking water. Go to the caves, take a boat ride and go up Pinnacale if you can. Bring supplies.

I still can't believe that I did not write a full review on the caves of Mulu....but better late than never!
One word, stunning, just stunning. It almost felt like one was taken back in time when the world was still a mystery and adventures were still inaccessible. But, the good thing is, these adventures are very accessible to all these days and we had an absolute blast exploring some of the world's largest caves in Mulu. Deer cave was our favourite and the underground river that cuts through parts of the cave....awesome power as we had a huge rainstorm few days prior so river was at full flow. The animals in the caves are a bit creepy and one is warned to not touch one's face with the same hand you hold on to the railings with (bat faeces and urine are everywhere) and one gets that point as you see what crawls on these railings!!! lol
All in all it is a sublime experience and our guides were so kind and knowledgeable. Funny thing, I took my professional tactical torch and it was so funny that all the guides asked if they could use it for the tours we were in due to the power of it....I said yes of course, some of the guides only use their mobiles/cell phones for lighting the way!!! so my tip is when you go, take some torches with you and give them to the guide, we had a cheapie one in the backpack and we gave it to our guide....he was beside himself. Nice thing to do I guess and only a few "bucks" for us to make a difference.
Enjoy the caves, it is truly spectacular. BTW we actually traveled here 2 years ago...
