  • 12:00pm - Pick-up at Mulu
  • At 12 pm, meet the guide at Mulu Airport and transfer to the hotel for check-in.
  • After lunch, visit Lang Cave and Deer Cave. The Lang Cave is one of the smaller caves but is beautifully decorated by the formation of the limestone for over thousands of years. The Deer Cave is also the world's largest cave passage at 174 metres wide and 122 metres high, and a must-do at Mulu!
  • In the evening, witness tens of thousands of bats flying overhead Deer Cave where they hunt for insects.
Day 2: Batu Bungan Penan Settlement - Wind and Clearwater's Cave - Lady's Cave - Long Lutu - Camp 5

Today you'll go on a boat and visit Wind Cave, Clearwater Cave and Lady's Cave before settling into Camp 5

Accommodation: Mulu Camp 5 - Camp

  • After breakfast, visit the local Penan tribe at Batu Bungan Penan Settlement before heading to Wind Cave by boat.
  • Then visit the Clearwater Cave, the Lady's Cave and the underground river. The Clearwater cave is Asia's longest cave, measuring 107km and is believed to be the largest interconnected cave system in the world by volume! Lady's Cave is a small section of the Clearwater Cave, with impressive stalagmite and stalactites.
  • After the caves, swim/picnic by Clearwater Spring.

My friend & I have signed up the 4 days 3 nights package for Mulu Pinnacles then only realised that it is tough before we departed. Surprisingly, this trip has ended with stories & laughs despite the sweats & muscles pain. We have joined the big family in the mountain and really enjoyed the simple natural life there. The tour guides are great, friendly & patient. With the tour guide, hike to the peak and descend from the mountain are not as tough as the others mentioned. Trees and stones were our best friends in the mountain. Echo of our chats and laughs surrounded the mountain even in the rain. It is definitely a memorable and excellent trip!

Joined the 3D2N Mulu tour. Had a wonderful time - good planning n smooth running. Benarat Lodge staff are friendly. Our Guide Duncan is diligent, helpful n professional. Mr Anil, manager, is friendly n responsible. Meals, which consist of 1soup, 2 Vege, 1meat( fish/ chik) are tastefully cooked. Kudos to the cook. Rooms are clean though basic. The only hiccup- staying at the 2 blocks of rooms underneath/near the fruiting mango tree. During the night, we were shockingly awakened by loud sound when mangoes dropped on the metal roofs. Overall, we enjoyed this trip. Thanks Borneo Tropical Adventure.

Pros: Helped us manage all the important and miscellaneous things so we didn't have to go through too much trouble to secure a tour to Mulu. Cons: Poor arrangement of the Mulu tour. We stayed in this Benarat Lodge where we were pretty much ripped off (eg. limited water and electricity available only from 6pm till 2am). Only after the tour, we realized that we could stay within the national park for much better value. Furthermore, our trip could have ended in one day, but we were arranged for a stay of two days with half of each day being wasted doing nothing, and staying an extra night which incurred more charges.
