Arrive at Mulu airport in the morning and transfer to the park accommodation for check in. In the afternoon, enjoy a scenic 3 kilometers plankwalk through primary rainforest to the entrance of Deer Cave, the world’s largest cave passage. The entrance of the cave is 150 meters wide and 120 meters high – nowhere in this massive cave is the roof less than 90 meters high. The cave has a moon-like landscape and from one vantage point, you can see a perfect profile of President Lincoln. Next to Deer Cave is Lang’s Cave. The stalactites and stalagmites inside this cave are representative of the very best limestone formations in the park. After viewing the two caves, proceed to the Bat Observatory outside Deer Cave. A spectacular exodus of about 2 million of bats can be observed at sundown as they leave the cave in search of food. Then trek back to the park HQ by torchlight and return to your accommodation.
In the morning, proceed by longboat upriver to Wind Cave with its impressive ‘King’s Chamber’. Here, stalactites and stalagmites with delicate lace-like patterns are found. Walk along a plankwalk next to the limestone cliff and climb up approximately 250 concrete steps to reach the entrance of Clearwater Cave. Like most caves in Mulu, Clearwater Cave provides a habitat for unique species of plants such as the one-leafed plant which can only be found at Mulu. Photo-sensitive algae grows on certain rocks and produce needle-like formations that point towards the source of light. Nearby Clearwater Cave, there is a wonderful swimming area shaded by giant rainforest trees. Enjoy a simple picnic or packed lunch, swim or relax before returning to your accommodation. The rest of the afternoon is free at your leisure.
