Newlyweds who wish to enjoy their time among nature and the geological wonders of Mulu can pick this type of getaway as a mini-honeymoon too!

The three days and two nights in Gunung Mulu National Park can be a perfect leave for groups of people such as families and employees on a business teambuilding trip, providing the definitive physical challenges.

Mulu Pinnacles

Mulu’s most famous attractions, though, are the Pinnacles, a forest of razor-sharp limestone peaks clustered 45m above the rainforest.

The trip to Mulu starts with a MASWings flight to Mulu airport, where you will be greeted by your guide, and then be transferred to check in at Benarat Inn for a budget stay in Mulu, or Royal Mulu Resort for superior accommodation there.

Lunch is offered at Sg. Pala Restaurant, and then in the afternoon you will visit the first two Mulu Caves in Gunung Mulu National Park, Sarawak. They are the Deer and Lang’s Caves.

The day’s tour is then completed with a grand natural display at the entrance of Deer Cave, where visitors can wait and then wonder at the sight of thousands of bats exiting the Mulu cave in the early evening, coming out to hunt for dinner in the jungle.

Each evening the bats gather at the cave entrance in large ring-shaped formations, circling higher and higher up the cliff face before moving out across the rainforest in spiraling ribbons.

Visitors then will return to the Mulu National Park headquarters and then take a trip by van to their respective accommodation for dinner and a night’s rest.

After breakfast the next day, visitors will visit the source of Clearwater River by boat, where they would continue their tour of Gunung Mulu National Park.

The next two Mulu caves in Gunung Mulu National Park, Sarawak, the Wind and Clearwater Caves will bring awe to the visitors, and after a lengthy visit, they can relax themselves with a swim and picnic at the Clearwater Spring, near its namesake Mulu cave.

On the way back to their accommodation, visitors will stop by at Batu Bungan Penan Settlement for a visit, before settling for the night for dinner and then a good night’s sleep.

Optionally, guests can choose to get pleasure from a visit to the Mulu Canopy which leaves at 2.00 pm. The Canopy Skywalk requires travelers to walk along the longest tree-based pathway anywhere. The Canopy Skywalk is 480 metres long.

The Canopy Skywalk at Gunung Mulu National Park is 480 metres long.

The two-hour walk will enable visitors to stroll among the vines and branches about 15 to 25 metres on top of the river and forest floor, where they can enjoy this one-of-a-kind chance to be among the web of life inside the rainforest.

The second day of this trip will need visitors to bring their swimming suit for a dip at the Clearwater Spring, but overall, the essentials that must be available always are mosquito repellent, torchlight, raincoat and good shoes for trekking.

On day 3, it will be free and easy before departure to airport for flights back to Miri or Kota Kinabalu.
