  • You need to be reasonably fit with the ability to be underground in small dark places. Caving at Mulu often involves wading across rivers or streams, squeezing between rocks and through crevices, swimming up underground rivers, and of course, getting covered in dirt.
  • For your safety and comfort: Lights and helmets are provided, but you will get muddy so bring old clothes, a spare torch, glove and good walking shoes (No sandals).
  • The Park reserves the right – and indeed the responsibility – to cancel any tour if in the opinion of the Park Guide :
    1. The water level in the cave is too high
    2. The weather is showing clear signs that heavy rain can be expected during the tour
    3. There are people in the group who simply will not fit into parts of the cave which cannot be avoided
    4. There are people in the group who have demonstrated that they are unwilling or unable to follow the instructions of the guide.
  • Information about your caving experience should be sent to
