Info : Gunung Mulu National Park

Located in an isolated region of the Malaysian state of Sarawak, Gunung Mulu is the state’s largest national park and despite its remote location, the park is one of Sarawak’s most popular destinations.

The unspoilt wilderness here comprises deep gorges, clear rivers, numerous habitats housing fascinating wildlife and caves which come alive once the sun sets – making it a unique and rewarding area to explore. The most iconic features of the park are the limestone pinnacles, as well as the enormous Sarawak Chamber in Gua Nasib Bagus cave which is said to be so large it can fit about 40 Boeing 747s without the wings touching!

It is not only astounding geology here either, with excellent bird watching (there are eight species of hornbill here), as well as hugely diverse plant life. The piece de resistance however has got to be standing outside Deer Cave at sundown, where the enormous wrinkle-lipped bat (Tadaridaplicata) colony emerges from the cave to feed.

We recommend heading in to the park for at least two nights, giving you the chance to explore a number of the caves and even have time for the odd dip in a natural spring! If you want to explore the pinnacles too, we recommend staying longer.

Gunung Mulu National Park is reached by plane from Kuching or Kota Kinabalu.
