The Park

Tropical wonderland is the only way to describe Sarawak's largest national park. For the visitor seeking adventure it has everything, the world's most extensive cave system, rock climbing, jungle trekking, kayaking, mountain biking, river rapids, and fascinating people, including Sarawak's last nomadic tribe.

Most of the park was unexplored until Britain's Royal Geographic Society surveyed it in the late 1970s. What wonders they found!

Three mountains dominate the 544 square-kilometre park - Gunung Mulu, Gunung Api and Gunung Benarat, the latter still unclimbed. They are honeycombed by the world's most extensive cave system. So far 310 kilometres of passages have been surveyed and that is only a third of what is believed to exist.

The system includes the world's largest natural chamber, Sarawak Chamber, capable of holding 47 jumbo jets, the world's largest cave passage, Deer Cave, and the longest cave in Southeast Asia, Clearwater Cave, which runs for 108 kilometres and has never been traversed from end to end.
