Gunung Mulu National Park

Gunung Mulu National Park

This world heritage site is famous for its impressive cave complex, but the biodiversity and scenic beauty of the whole park is just as breathtaking. Beside the popularly visited Deer, Lang, Clearwater and Lady’s Caves, a more strenuous trek leads to a weird landscape of razor-sharp rock pinnacles.

Permits and a park guide are usually organized by tour operators. Access to Mulu was traditionally by boat, but Fokker Friendship and Twin Otter, the sturdy workhorse of MAS rural air services, can shorten the daylong trip to a 25-minute and a 40-minute flight respectively.

The Canopy Skywalk, the world’s longest tree-based structure, in Mulu National Park allow visitors a glimpse of life in the treetops of the rainforest. 480 metres of walkway hang 20 metres above the forest floor, forming a circular route suspended between 15 trees with a separate exit tower. To keep human incursions at a sustainable level, visitor numbers to the Canopy Skywalk are carefully monitored. Tour operators need to book canopy walks well in advance, and stay within the stated hours. Up to ten tours per day is available.
