FD Mulu National Park with lunch


| May 15, 2020

Mulu National Park, a Unesco world heritage site named after Mount Mulu, protects an area of rainforest known for its limestone karst formations and extensive cave systems. A number of these cave systems, such as Clearwater Cave, the Cave of the Winds, Deer Cave and Lang Cave, can all be easily explored on foot, and are known for their impressive stalagmites, stalactites and huge caverns. Deer Cave is home to a colony of more than 3 million wrinkle-lipped bats, whose mass exodus everyday at sunset, when they fly out of the cave to forage for food in the surrounding jungle, is a truly impressive sight. A wide range of birds has also been recorded in the park: look out for the magnificent rhinoceros hornbill.
