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
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.
