After a year of black-out from the tourism map due to connectivity problem, things are getting better for Mulu after Malaysia Airlines' subsidiary MASWings took over the rural air service by end of 2007.  

Located in the northern region ofMiri, Mount Mulu is the gem of Sarawak's eco tourism attractions with its interesting cave systems and diverse flora and fauna varieties.  

Encompassing an area of 52,865 hectares, Mulu National Park is the largest national park in Sarawak and is a UNESCO Heritage Site since 2000.  

Only 300km of its extensive cave system have been uncovered and mapped out, leaving vast areas still waiting to be explored. For visitors to the national park, there are four caves which are open to the public. These are Lang Cave, Deer Cave, Clearwater Cave and Wind Cave. Proper walkways have been built for easy access to all these caves providing visitors a breathtaking sight of the surrounding jungle.  

Lang Cave offers visitors amazing limestone formation of stalactites and stalagmites. The smallest of the four caves, Lang was named after a Berawan (a local native) who discovered the cave during a hunting trip.  

A short distance away is the Deer Cave which is home to an estimated 5 million bats. Named after the animal-sake that came to the cave for the salt lick, Deer Cave is famous for its magnitude that is reputedly able to hold five St Paul Cathedrals, 40 Boeing 747 and four football fields.  

Deer Cave is also famously known for its Abraham Lincoln profile made up of rock formation near the cave entrance and an area near the rear end of the cave that is overgrown with trees and shrubs.  

Another attraction at Deer Cave is the bat exodus that occurs almost every evening between 4.30pm and 6.30pm. About 2 million of the nocturnal creatures will fly out simultaneously from the cave in search for food.  

To allow visitors to have a closer look at the bats, Borsamulu Park Management Sdn Bhd that manages the national park, will be installing infrared cameras at strategic spots in the cave. Images captured by the cameras can be viewed at the wide screen placed at the Bat Observatory and the Visitors' Discovery Centre at the park headquarters.

Apart from the leisure tours of the four caves, visitors to Mulu can also explore the many trails in the national park as well as go on the canopy walk. They can also engage in adventure caving activity.  

Suspended between 30 to 40 metres above the forest floor, the canopy walk has the longest tree to tree skywalk in the world. The 480 metre skywalk is linked by 15 tall trees mostly of the hardwood species.  

As for the more adventurous souls, there are the Headhunters Trail and the Pinnacles Trail to test your stamina and endurance. Both trails are popular among visitors who are game for the adventure of going through thick forest which is sometime infested with leech, muddy trek and limestone paths. There are also several streams to cross along these trails.  

Accommodations are aplenty in Mulu. The choice is from star-rated Royal Mulu Resort to modest and comfortable lodges run by the national park management and travel agents.  

In the first eight months of 2007, more than 20,000 visitors have visited Mulu.

Dense vegetation clings to every surface. Steep slopes and vertical cliffs reach summit
ridges before dropping to hidden valleys.

Jagged limestone pinnacles, bleached white,  pierce the lush green canopy

Cave passages wind their way through the mountains, opening into chambers
so large you are dwarfed to insignificance.

This is Mulu!

Turtle Cave (beginner)
If you have never tried adventure caving, exploring the Turtle Cave' section of Clearwater Cave is a great introduction to visiting Mulu's underground world. Your guide will lead you on an exciting trip into the river to follow its pathway out of the cave. The 45 minute tour runs daily at 12.00, costs RM20 per person but will be cancelled without notice if the water is too high.

Lagangs Cave (beginner)
This is an ideal adventure for students and family groups. An easy hour rainforest walk takes you to the cave entrance to begin your 1 hour underground experience. Equipped with helmets and torches, discover the mysterious dark world of cave insects and bats. Scramble over boulders where ancient rivers carved their way through the mountain.
Total time 3-4 hours.

Lagangs Cave (intermediate)
Continue for another 1 hour to the challenging 150 meter climb over boulders to the exit. You emerge on the mountainside to clamber down 100 meters to the river level and a short trek to the cooling Paku Waterfall. Before starting the 2 hour trek back to Park HQ relax, enjoy a swim and some food.
Total time 5-6 hours.

Drunken Forest (intermediate)
Drunken Forest is in the Clearwater Cave system but the entrance is located near the Summit Trail. During your 3 hour jungle walk there are several streams to cross so you will definitely get wet. This is a beautiful cave with many white straws, stalagmites leaning at a 'drunken* angle and cave pearls.
Total time 8 hours.

Racer Cave (intermediate)

The walk to Racer is around 30 minutes or you can hire a boat to save time and energy.

Your underground journey will be about 2 hours depending on the group size, the more people, the longer it will take (maximum of 8). Your guide leads you through the cave climbing up and down the passageways with the aid of ropes. This cave requires some upper body strength but most people are successful. Life in the dark will amaze you; see insects that have adapted into strange shapes to survive in this underground world and Racer snakes that have learned how to catch a meal as it flies past. Enjoy the great feeling that comes with discovering your abilities and meeting a physical challenge.

Stonehorse (advanced)
After walking 2km along the Rainforest Discovery Walk, climb 80 meters up the rough limestone cliff to where the 'horse-head* shaped rock marks the cave's entrance. Your 3 hour adventure underground includes a 20m traverse and negotiating between large 50m deep holes. The passages are large and open with 35m ceilings, interesting pebble sediments and beautiful speleothems.
Total time 4-5 hours.

Clearwater Connection (advanced)

A longer trip (4.8km) and depending on fitness it takes between 6 to 8 hours, (larger groups take more time)

Beginning in the show cave section of the Cave of the Winds adventurers leave the tame pathways behind and venture into the 'wild* chambers. Your route is over terrain strewn with boulders that require some climbing up and clambering down many muddy slopes. Areas that are hazardous have fixed ropes and guides carry personal ropes to assist you in sections that require climbing. For many the 1.5km river section is the highlight as it is exceptionally beautiful and refreshing after the hard caving. The Clearwater Connection tour is not available when the water levels are too high.

Sarawak Chamber (advanced)

A particularly challenging tour even for fit visitors and experienced cavers. Taking one very full day, beginning at 7.00am you will follow the Summit Trail for about 3 hours. Access to the chamber is via Gua Nasib Bogus (Good Luck Cave) along an 800 meter river channel with sheer rock faces rising to about 50 meters on either side. After a 200 meter traverse and a steep boulder slope you come face to face with the inky blackness of earth's largest chamber. Enjoy a short rest at the mouth of the chamber, before the return trip. If the water levels are too high, the tour will be cancelled and the group returns to Park headquarters.
Total time 10-15 hours depending on fitness.

Immerse yourself in Mulu.

Around you the forest pulses with life, vivid butterflies, huge insects, lush ferns, and towering trees.

The 480m long Mulu Canopy Skywalk is the world's longest tree based canopy walk.

In this magical tree top world sway over the tranquil river 20 meters below. Around you is a sunlit world of fragrant flowers, beautiful ferns, monkeys, squirrels and birds. (Guided)

Plants for Life Walk (guide optional)

Garden of Eden (guided) in
Deer Cave, leave the regular tour route and climb down to the underground river. Your destination is the glowing pool of light and water at the far end of the cave.
