Things to see in Borneo: Gunung Mulu National Park
- Fact!: The Mulu caves have the world's largest cave passage, the world's largest natural chamber (capable of 'housing' 47 jumbo jets!) and, at 108 kilometres, the longest cave in South East Asia. To date over 300 kilometres of underground cave passages have been surveyed.
Sarawak's largest national park is dominated by three mountains - Mulu, Api and Benarat - and surrounded by rainforest. However its major claim to fame is one of the world's largest limestone cave systems. The scale is bewildering, and at dusk in excess of three million bats pour out of Deer Cave like a giant plume of black smoke it is one of the world's great natural spectacles.
The wildlife is diverse: 75 species of mammals, over 260 species of birds, 170 species of wild orchid and 10 species of pitcher plant.
