Gunung Mulu National Park
Gunung Mulu National Park contains the most extensive and spectacular cave system on Earth.
Sarawak Chamber is the biggest natural chamber, and Deer Cave is the longest cave on the planet.
Nearby, Clearwater Cave is has over a hundred kilometres of passages!
Many of the caves are illuminated, and visitors can marvel at 600-foot "indoor" waterfalls.
You will also marvel (and possibly shudder) every evening, when more than a million bats stream from the
caves like a dense black cloud, to spend the night gorging on Mulu's rich insect population.
It must be a nervous time for the insects!
The caves and the bats are a must-see!
But Mulu has a great deal more to make you gawp in amazement.
Like the 1500+ species of flowering plants - including nearly 200 types of orchids.
Or the 67 species of mammals, 260 species of birds, 74 species of frogs, and 281 species of butterflies!
There are also towering mountains, unexplored rivers and the sheer majesty of Borneo's rain-forest.
This is Eco-Tourism at its finest!
Mulu is a truly wondrous place - you really must go there!
You might think that a place like this is only accessible to hardened, bearded backpackers.
But you would be wrong! You can fly all the way to the park.
And when you arrive, you can stay in the lap of luxury at the five-star Royal Mulu Resort!
There is other accommodation available too - but space is limited, so best to book early.
