Run by: The Great Projects
Reference number: Mulu National Park
Experience an area of Borneo which is often forgotten and underappreciated, during this fascinating 3-day tour. On this jam-packed tour, you will witness four different cave passages, trek through the jungle and peat swamps, swim in the pristine waters of the Clearwater Cave and visit the Batu Bungan Penan Settlement to observe their tribal lifestyle.
Take part in a 3km raised plank walk to reach the Deer Cave, all the while admiring the sights of the alluvial flats and limestone outcrops. You will be met by the largest cave passage in the world with simply stunning hills, valleys, plains and forests all located in the entrance to the cave. Inside, you will welcome the chance to cool down as you witness a magical waterfall.
Lang Cave may be smaller but no less fascinating. Already home to stalagmites and stalactites, it also sports its own native bat population, which you will be able to see fly out of the cave in an almost snake-like formation come nightfall, as they set off to locate their meal for the night.
You'll also get the opportunity to cool off in the sparkling waters of the Clearwater Cave. Jump in and relax with a swim in the water that's purified by the limestone, then dry off during a visit to the Wind Cave, named after the cool breeze that emanates from its entrance. The Wind Cave is also home to the "Kings Room" exploding with glistening stalactites and stalagmites!
Day 1: Deer and Lang Caves
You will be met at arrivals in Mulu Airport and transferred to your chalet in the National Park. After dropping off your bags, you will get stuck in straight away with your first venture: the largest cave passage in the world that is Deer Cave. The next stop is the stunning Lang cave, and after experiencing the Guano deposits left by the bats, you will return to the chalet for dinner and a relaxing evening.
Day 2: Clear Water Cave and Wind Caves
Today you will be picked up from your accommodation and make your way to Wind cave with its impressive King’s Chamber via longboat. After exploring the stunning surroundings of Wind cave, you will proceed to make your way up around 250 concrete steps where you will then arrive at Clearwater Cave.

You can take a swim or relax in the shade, and then enjoy a picnic before heading back to your accommodation.
