Gunung Mulu National Park Named after Mount Mulu in Asia, the park attracts tourists from all over Asia. They come to enjoy trekking, caving and hot springs.

Climbers can reach Mount Mulu after a 24-kilometre trek at 1,200m elevation that begins at the park headquarters. However, those who want to spend a more relaxed day out can also take the more accessible trails in the park.

However, the park’s most popular attractions are its caves and the millions upon millions of bats that live within them. The caves are hidden deep within the rainforest and karst rock cliffs and break many records. They include Southeast Asia’s most comprehensive cave system and the most significant cave passage in the world. At 115m high and 600m long, Sarawak Chamber is the largest cave chamber in all of Asia. Unfortunately, it isn’t easy to access and requires a guided tour.

Popular park activities include kayaking, mountain biking, and a stroll in the canopy skywalk that spans 500 meters.
