Attraction and activities


Treks and Trails

Mulu has three adventure treks, all of which require a certain level of physical fitness. You need basic camping gear, as it is useful if you are planning to stay overnight in the jungle base camps.  Trekkers must be accompanied by official park guides.  Most tour operators can assist with travel arrangements for these treks and also can supply any necessary equipment and food.





Deer Cave & Lang's Cave

You can reach the Deer Cave by following a three kilometers plankwalk path where you will pass through peat swamp, alluvial flats and limestone outcrops including some superb rainforest, jungle streams and an ancient Penan burial cave.


Upon reaching the cave entrance, there is no doubt that you are about to enter the largest cave passage in the world.  The cave is simply huge, over 2 kilometers in length and not less than 90 meters high and wide.  The main chamber, which is partially lit by sunlight, is 174 meters wide and 122 meters high.  Deer used to shelter at this cave and this explains why the name Gua Rusa (Deer Cave) was given by the local Penan and Berawan people.




Deer Cave is home to many species of bats.  If the weather is fine, visitors may be treated to the spectacular sight of a black cloud of free-tailed bats merging from the entrance of the cave to go in search of food between 5 and 7pm.  Initially, this cloud was thought to contain hundreds of thousands of bats, but recently according to a study it was known that the figure is well over 1.3 millions.  These bats help to control pests on crops around the vicinity of the caves.  They get rid of insects like mosquitoes.  It was estimated that each bat could eat 10gms of insects or fruits per day.


There is a path leads into the cave and winds its way around, follow the natural contours of the cave floor. This path eventually leads to the "Garden of Eden" where a hole in the cave roof lets in a shaft of light, which allows the rich green vegetation to thrive. Another feature is the famous profile of Abraham Lincoln, which guards the southern entrance of the cave.


A visit to Deer Cave is usually combined with one to Lang's Cave, whose entrance is a short distance away from that of Deer Cave. Lang's Cave is the smallest of the show caves but its rock formations are well worth seeing. These are more attractive, as all are strategically positioned spotlights, which highlight stalactites and stalagmites.




Clearwater Cave & Wind Cave

Clearwater Cave is Asia's longest cave and also rated as 7th longest cave passage in the world.  It measures 107km.  It has a subterranean river, part of which is navigable by boat. 


There are two ways to access Clearwater Cave.  First, you can trek a 4 km nature trail, which takes about one and half hours.  Alternatively, you can take the longboat cruise along the Melinau River where it stops at Wind Cave.  This usually take 15 minutes but, if the water level is low, the journey might takes longer as the boatman often has to jump out of the boat and push.




Wind Cave, which is part of the Clearwater Cave system, has many impressive stalactites, stalagmites, flowrocks, helitites and rock corals, some of which are illuminated in the 'King's Room.'


After visiting these caves, visitors can climb down the steps to the picnic area.  There is a crystal clear pool at the area filled by water that flows out from the caves which is an excellent swimming spot.  Visitors can also choose to relax on the picnic benches and admire the rainforest scenery, or perhaps watch the swarms of butterflies that are often found fluttering around the riverbank.  If you are lucky, you might see the Rajah Brooke butterfly with its huge bright-green coloured wings.


The Pinnacles

Mulu’s famous Pinnacles, which are a mid-way up the slopes of Gunung Api, consist a series of 45 meters high, razor-sharp limestone spikes that tower above the surrounding vegetation.  The trek to view them is one of the most popular in the park, yet it is tough and challenging as the trail itself is very steep and requires a certain level of fitness.




The Headhunter's Trail

The Headhunter's Trail is a great way of entering or leaving Gunung Mulu National Park.


The trek is organised by travel operators.  It combines upriver travel, jungle trekking and an overnight stay at an Iban longhouse.  The trail itself follows the route taken by Kayan headhunting parties who paddled up the Melinau River to the Melinau Gorge. From there, they dragged their longboats through the forest for 3 km until they reached the banks of the Terikan River, where they launched headhunting raids against the people of the Limbang area.


The Headhunter's Trail can also be done in reverse, starting from Limbang and ending up at the park HQ. Either way the trek offers an excellent introduction to the rivers and rainforest of Mulu and the added attraction of a longhouse visit. Visitors have the option to climb the Pinnacles as part of their Headhunter’s Trail package as the trek includes an overnight stay at Camp 5.





Gunung Mulu Summit Trek

The toughest trek in the park is the climb to the summit of Gunung Mulu (2,376 m).  It requires a high level of fitness.  In the 19th Centrury, two old ‘Borneo hands’, Spenser St John and Charles Hose, attempted to conquer Mount Mulu, but expedition failed.  It was not until 1920’s, when Tama Nilong discovered the ‘south-west’ ridge way to the summit.  In 1932, Tama Nilong led Lord Shackleton and an Oxford University Expedition to the summit of Mulu.


Since then, the route discovered in 1920’s was used as the trail to summit.  The trek is usually done by a 4-day hike, but experienced trekkers can do it in less.  It involves overnight stops at jungle camps.  A number of wooden huts are positioned along the trail, which provide shelter for overnight stops.  Trekkers should well prepare with good trekking shoes, sleeping bag, food supplies, cooking utensils and sufficient water before the trek.  Along the trail, trekkers can experience the rainforest and perhaps see some rare animals and birds, including various species of Hornbill. 







Visitors are required to register at the Park HQ upon arrival.  There is a good information centre next to the registration counter. Book your accommodation in advance. Bring a raincoat, torch and camera flash along.  Non-slip shoes are essential as the trails are slippery.  Plan for at least 2 days’ stay in the park to visit the cave system.


No camping equipment will be provided by the Park. Therefore, bring your own sleeping bags (2 seasons) for Camp 5 are sufficient, but for the Summit Trail, warmer equipment is recommended.  Visitors who are going for Adventure Caving must bring their own caving equipments, as the park does not supply them. The Park HQ also has a canteen, which sells drinks and meals.



Getting there


You can access using the main gateway for Gunung Mulu National Park at Miri, Northeast Flight is also available by Malaysian Airlines, which operates scheduled services from Miri to Mulu using a 19 seater Twin Otter aircraft.  It takes approximately 45 minutes to reach and you can get a very nice bird view of the rainforest. 


Alternatively, you can travel by boat at Marudi.  However, longboats must be chartered, as there is no regular boat service on the last section of the trip.
