Minimum age is 16 years old.
Sarawak Chamber will require you to stay 1 night at Camp 1 (compulsory) and is a particularly challenging tour even for visitors that have good fitness and are experienced cavers.
The trail takes approximately three hours before reaching the mouth of Gua Nasib Bagus (Good Luck Cave). Before entering the cave, the guide must assess the water levels at the cave mouth as high water levels make it unsafe. If the water levels are too high, the tour will be cancelled and the group returns to park headquarters.
If the water level is low enough the tour proceeds for approximately 900 metres along a river channel with sheer rock faces rising to about 50 metres on either side. Towards the end of the river there is a traverse, using fixed ropes, of approximately 200 metres. Following the traverse the tour then proceeds up a steep boulder slope to the chamber itself (takes roughly about 120 minutes to complete). The chamber is pitched at a steep angle and the floor is covered in boulders. The tour stops at the mouth of the chamber.
*Ability to swim is essential. *Bring your own torchlight.
