Gunung Mulu National Park Holidays
The UNESCO World Heritage listed Gunung Mulu National Park, which featured on David Attenborough’s Planet Earth series, is one of nature’s most spectacular achievements.
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, perhaps Mulu’s greatest attraction is the gigantic cave system lying deep below the extensive forest canopy.
These amazing limestone caves of unbelievable proportions are said to be the world’s largest, even big enough to hold 37 jumbo jets! They include four ‘show caves’, Wind, Deer, Clearwater and Lang, all accessible by wooden walkways and paths. At dusk, you may also be treated to the incredible sight as bats emerge from Deer Cave to go in search of food.
Above ground, there’s a 1,570 feet rainforest canopy skywalk and fabulous jungle or mountain hikes, including the challenging trek to see the Pinnacles, the razor sharp limestone spikes that sit majestically on Gunung Api’s slopes.
