Mulu Caves & Pinnacles Trek
Mulu National Park is Malaysia's first UNESCO site, and its remote location makes visiting it still very much the explorer's expedition. Here you can explore the world's largest caves, see the exodus of millions of bats from their cave, and hike up Mt Api for sublime views that look like the tombstones of giants. Suitable for intermediate hikers.

Helpful Questions from Other Travellers
How do I get there?
To reach Gunung Mulu National Park, you'll need to fly into Mulu Airport. The guide will pick you up from Mulu Airport. There are daily flights into Mulu from Miri, and flights four times a week into Mulu from Kota Kinabalu and Kuching respectively. Most people fly into Mulu from Miri because of the daily flights.
Do I need to go with a guide?
Every group that visits Gunung Mulu National Park will be assigned a state park guide who will take them through the caves and lead them on the Mt. Api climb, so if you want a basic, no-frills experience, you do not need a private guide to take you around. However, we have found from our own journey to Mulu that there is great value added by a private guide who can help pace you up the steep mountain trail, give you more context to what what you're seeing on the trail and pamper you a little at camp with freshly prepared meals. It was a challenging trek so we definitely appreciated the pampering!
Do I need to train up?
You should have a pretty good level of physical fitness for this trip, primarily because of the very steep Mt. Api climb which is 2.4km in length (1.2km each way) and will take 6-7 hours. You should also be fine with wading through water (in case of low water levels, it may be necessary to jump in the river to help push the boat along) and not be afraid of confined spaces such as caves. You should also have the ability to carry your own light pack with water (about 3 litres is recommended) and food.
What's the best time to go?
The best months to visit are March, April, May, June, July, August, September, October
We recommend the above period because you would have good weather.
Is there anything else I should know?
Please note that all prices exclude Malaysian Tourism tax of RM10 per room per night. This only applies to non-homestay and non-dormitory accommodation. We totally get you - it's a bother to have to consider this extra charge all the time. We're looking to see if the providers can incorporate this into their pricing so please be patient with us.
