our history

a little about Mulu Heritage

First there’s the topography with the landscape ranging in altitude from just 50 metres above sea level near park headquarters to the peaks of Gunung Mulu at 2,377 metres and then we have the unique underground environments of the caves. Combine this with a geology of alluvial clays, sandstone and limestone formations to produce dozens of niches and specialist environments for both plants and animals.

                                   sturdy non-slip shoes


                                   insect repellant

  • A 3km almost flat walk on raised plank walks takes you to the Bat observatory (45 minutes to 1 hour).
  • Walk another 500m to reach one of the world’s largest cave passages, home to more than 3 million Wrinkle Lipped bats. A large number of swiftlets also roost in Deer Cave where the high cave ceilings (more than 100m in some places) provide a safe haven against predators.
  • Enjoy the sheer size of this limestone passage, an ancient riverbed, and see the force of water carving the scalloped walls.
  • Once you reach the green oasis of Garden of Eden you have walked 800m inside Deer Cave. Enjoy the unique showerhead formations of Adam and Eve’s showers spouting columns of water 30m to the riverbed below.
  • Returning almost the same way, but with views from different angles, you will visit Lang Cave with wonderful limestone shawls, stalagmites and stalactites. Bats are easier to see in this smaller cave and you will be very close to the shimmering webs of thread worm larvae, another miniscule wonder of Mulu caves.
  • The tour is timed to coincide with the bat exodus which could start any time from after 17:00.
  • To walk to Deer cave to witness the Bat exodus is a FREE excursion, BUT you cannot enter Deer or Lang cave without payment beforehand and a guide (as is the normal procedure). Expect to be back at HQ by 18:30 to 19:00, should the bats fly.
  • A small kiosk at the Bat Observatory sells drinks and snacks until 17:30. PLEASE BRING YOUR EMPTY TINS/PACKAGING BACK WITH YOU TO HQ as per World Heritage prescription.
  • Toilets and designated smoking area available.
  • This Deer Cave tour is also included in the Garden of Eden Valley walk. Keep this in mind as not to duplicate bookings.

MYR 67.00

*per person includes guide and longboat fees.

DURATION: 4 hours - DAILY tours

START TIMES: 08:45/09:15

WHAT TO BRING: Swimming costume

                                  Cash (Batu Bungan market)

  • Swimming inside the cave is not permitted, however a cool down in the natural crystal-clear waters at the picnic deck is a must. Float with the fish and enjoy the rainforest around you.
  • The Park tour does NOT include any food & beverage, feel free to bring your own. Café Mulu sells packed lunches on request.
  • Toilets and a designated smoking area available.

MYR 65.00

*per person includes guide and boat fee.

DURATION: 2 and a half hours


  • A short boat ride up the Melinau, a 10-20 minute walk through the rainforest and a climb up the steps to the cave entrance brings you to the start of a 1,5km underground adventure.
  • The tour size is limited to 12 people.
  • The tour begins by torch light encouraging you to ‘discover’ for yourself. Cave fauna is easily seen at the beginning of this trip: twinkling spider eyes stare back at you, blue Racer snakes sit waiting to catch a bat flying by, white crabs feed blindly in the shallow pools of water and the long antennae of cave crickets pick up your movements as you pass by.
  • As the cave becomes larger some of the best formations in Mulu are presented to you via stunning lighting. The wide plank walk path allows you to look around you and thoroughly enjoy this amazing experience.
  • This cave is highly regarded by scientists as it contains huge volumes of pre-historic sediments, including a volcanic ash layer.

Bring your own torchlight. The cave is a combination of show cave and wild, unlit cave

MYR 22.00 *per person includes guide fee.

DURATION: 1-2 hours

START TIME: 19:00/19:30  (*depending on DAILY Weather)


BOOKINGS ARE ESSENTIAL as group sizes are limited to enhance your experience. If it is raining, departure can be delayed up to 30 minutes before the tour is cancelled by your Park guide. A refund will be arranged the next day if the tour is cancelled before departure.

Mulu is a rich habitat for thousands of nocturnal species which prefer the darkness of night to protect them from predators. Although the forest is an orchestra of sounds at night, the visitor must move quietly to catch Mulu’s weird and wonderful creatures in the lights.

This tour is an excellent introduction to learn where to look and train the eye for the Mulu experience.

  • Be sure to take raingear.
  • Too much insect repellant has the tendency to warn other animals of your presence, thus making it more difficult to see.
  • Requires patience and a very quiet approach
  • The Guide is reliant on animals appearing or not. Please make it easy for the Guide and ask questions.

Bring your own torchlight
