Gunung Mulu Show Caves
If I have to choose one memory of Sarawak that I will cling to for the rest of my life it has to be undoubtedly the trip to Gunung Mulu. This was 4 days and 3 nights trip where my friend and I decided to do it on last month.
Gunung Mulu is Sarawak’s largest national park and also awarded as Malaysia’s first World Heritage area in 2000. Gunung Mulu is famous for its limestone karst formations. Features include enourmous caves, vast cave networks, rock pinnacles, cliffs and gorges.
Upon arrival Mulu Airport, we were greet by our organizer and transfer to Mulu Marriott Resor & Spa for check in. Upon registration, we were plank walking for 3 Km to reach Deer Cave & Lang Cave. After exploring the caves, proceed to bats observatory to observe bats flying out of caves entrance at late evening.
We had our breakfast at resort and transferred by longboat to Batu Bungan to observe the tribe lifestyle and to select handicrafts on display for sale at Penan Settlement. We continue our journey by longboat to Wind Cave and Clearwater Cave. We had our picninc lunch at Clearwater summer huts and relax for a while then continue journey by longboat to Long Litut. Then, we jungle trekking for 3 hours to Camp 5 and overnight there.
We had breakfast and ascend to Gunung Api for 3 hours to view the magnificent Pinnacles. During the climb, we saw many species of plants, many kinds of insects within this virgin jungle of Borneo.
We had breakfast and head to Long Litut. We then transfered to Clearwater summer hut for picnin lunch and enjoy the clear water spring.
That’s pretty much about our 4d3n trip to Gunung Mulu. If you happen to visit Sarawak and love nature, Gunung Mulu is the best place for you.
