Sarawak, or the “Land of Hornbills” is the largest state of Malaysia. Stretching along the Borneo’s northwest coast, for decades Sarawak have been attracting tourists from around the world with its scenic natural landscapes.

While there is so much to brag on about Sarawak’s treasures; the beaches, forests and highlands, there is one site that will always be the gem of Sarawak, The Gunung Mulu National Park.

Gunung Mulu National Park is a protected rainforest in Malaysian Borneo. Well protected and well preserved, Gunung Mulu National Park will always have a state of its own as the UNESCO World Heritage Site.

The park is dominated by Gunung Mulu, a 2377meters high sandstone pinnacle that contains a remarkable concentration of caves, revealing a geological history of over more than 1.5 million years.

Something special about this trip was the kinds of obstacles we had to go through as part of the adventure. From getting down from the boat rides to push the boats at low sediment areas, to navigating them, long treks to the base camp, and steep slopes on the way up.

Overall, if you are on to adventures and challenges, this is definitely the place for you. And as a treat, you get to see wonderful gigantic caves with special guided tour by the knowledgeable local experts.
