Gunung Mulu National Park Holidays
The UNESCO World Heritage listed Gunung Mulu National Park is one of nature's most spectacular achievements and the jewel in the crown of Sarawak's national park network. The region also featured recently on David Attenborough's Planet Earth series.
Covering 210 square miles of primary rainforest, criss-crossed by fast flowing rivers and clear jungle streams, Mulu is dominated by three mountains – Gunung Mulu, Gunung Api and Gunung Benara. However, many of Mulu's greatest attractions lie deep below the forested mountain with one of the largest limestone cave systems in the world.
These incredible caves of mind-boggling proportions are said to be the largest in the world, even big enough to hold 37 jumbo jets! They include the world's largest cave passage, Deer Cave; the world's largest natural chamber, Sarawak Chamber; and the longest cave in Southeast Asia, Clearwater Cave. The four show caves, Wind, Clearwater, Deer and Lang Caves, are all readily accessible by wooden walkways and paths. Deer Cave is home to many species of bats and each evening, visitors may be treated to the spectacular sight of bats emerging from the cave entrance to go in search of food.
Above ground the Mulu experience includes a 1,570 feet rainforest canopy skywalk and some excellent jungle and mountain hikes, including the challenging trek to view the Pinnacles, the razor sharp limestone spikes that sit majestically on the slops of Gunung Api.
