Mulu National Park in Sarawak is one of the world heritage listed place by UNESCO. It’s well known for being home to the largest Cave system in the world. My group of 8 was decided to take the Mulu Magic Cave & Pinnacles tour a try after we get know it’s all about hiking trip. We were all excited about hiking anyways.
Magic Mulu Caves & Mulu Pinnacles
1 – 4 July 2010
The Ultimate Challenge
To be part of this great challenge, we were advised to book the flight and accommodation for over a month earlier to prevent disappointment. We got our FREE SEAT promotion from AirAsia more than 6 months before the departure date.
We choose to stay at long house style accommodation instead of 4-star resort to cope with our budget. We took 4D3N tour package with Blessed Holidays for only RM839 (MATTA Fair price) per pax to explore Magic Mulu Caves & Pinnacles. Included MAS Wings flight (The Malaysian Airlines regional carrier) to National Park HQ where used to connect with other travelers from all over the places included famous Mulu Mountain trail (24km).
If you’ve been following my adventure of Mount KK last year, you might have remembered how tough I struggled to complete the Climbing Mount Kinabalu 2009. This was rather more extreme, instead of cold and long trekking up to blue sky, it’s pitch black darkness.
The Mulu Magic Caves & Pinnacles adventure 4 days 3 night was all about the following:-
- Lang Cave – Got rocks shaped like jellyfishes
- Deer Cave – View of Abraham Lincoln face and huge ancient riverbed. Can house few huge airplanes inside
- Wind Cave – This one is known for the King’s Chamber where one of the rock’s formations resembles a King
- Clear Water Cave – This is the one that we got a chance to jump into the icy water outside of the Cave’s entrance
- The Pinnacles – A terrible tough hike limestone mountains of Mulu are bedecked with sharp needles along the way and terrifying sharp.
