I never understood why anyone would find cave tours boring. Pictures really don't do them justice - you need to experience them yourselves. I always thought I'd be disinterested, but this is the third time I'm visiting any kind of caves and I still find them so fascinating. Mulu Caves are even better with their sheer size, I cannot be more amazed! From the bat exodus of the Deer Cave to the underground river in the Clearwater Cave, I really have nothing bad to say about them. Book the tours with the park itself, it's cheaper and the guides are super friendly!

The caves are part of the Mulu National Park, one of the world heritage area.
Visitors can use longboat to access this rainforest and then climb the valley,across waterfall or even walk around limestone cliffs.

As a Malaysian, i have learned about the size of the caves from the school text books but i couldn't imagine how magnificently large and beautiful it is. Words and photos are insufficient to describe the size and beauty of these caves.
There's a total of 4 show caves separated into 2 places:
Deer and Lang caves are side-by-side: 3km walk from the park HQ - it is also the place to watch the 'bat exodus'
Wind and Clear Water caves: requires a boat ride to reach; there are many stairs in these 2 caves but it's definitely worth the effort.
- to visit: please prepare a torch light, poncho (just in case it rains), hiking shoes with good grip (could be slippery); and always, listen to the guide - they are there to make sure of our safety and comfort.
on the side note: I believe this is the most well-maintained national park in Sarawak - clean and tidy.

I visited Mulu national park and its caves in December 2018 for 2 days. It is such a gem of a place and a must for anybody travelling to Borneo ! I booked a trip to see the wildlife in the north and wanted to squeeze in a quick visit to the caves, what was supposed to be an extra to my main adventure turned out to be the best part of my holiday. The park is beautifully run and the guides are knowledgeable and extremely friendly. Add it to your itinerary trust me on this!

The show caves here are majestic and beautiful. Visiting any caves here required a park guide and a fees. The park guides are all very friendly and knowledgeable. The fees to the showcaves inclusive of park guide and some with long boat rides cost only from RM35 to RM85.

Stayed for 4 nights in Mulu and had signed up for the Mulu Racer Cave Adventure, Clearwater Cave, Cave of the Wind, Lang Cave and Deer Cave. Our guide was Mr Undi. He was very knowledgeable, friendly and funny. We loved him :)

Day 1:
Walking trek to Paku Waterfall [about 1-2hrs]. The trek was simple - walking on wooden boardwalk. Bring swimming attire if you are keen to swim at the fall.

Day 2:
Trip to the Racer Cave started at 1400hrs. We were issued with safety gears like harness & helmet with torch. You must be reasonably fit as the trip involved climbing - good to have upper body strength. We were ferried to the cave by long boats [about 15 mins]. Tips: Bring a Go-Pro, gloves, long pants, plain water, simple snacks and suitable shoes [anti-slip]. You will get dirty. We were back at the Park Office by 1730hrs.

Day 3:
Trip to Clearwater & Cave of the Wind. Trip started at 0845 and ended around 1230. 15 mins long boat journey to the caves. Hundreds of stairs but it was worth it.

Walking trip to the Deer and Lang Caves started at 1400hrs. Leisure walk on wooden boardwalks. The caves were massive and awesome. Trip ended around 1700hrs to watch the bat exodus at the nearby Bat Observatory.
Tips: bring torchlight, water and snacks.

A real eye opener for surface folk. Didn't know caves can be so huge and the bats - wow! Don't miss the 'BATxodus' at the Deer Cave. Spectacular!!

We visited 4 caves in total with the Clearwater and Deer caves being the best; a guide is needed for all caves as you cannot visit these independently; the early evening bat watch is a must outside the Deer cave.
