Wake early to observe wildlife as you walk along the longest canopy walk in Borneo. Later, travel to a nearby Penan village, where you will experience their vibrant culture and experience their way of life. Admire their beautiful crafts, before returning to Mulu. Proceed up the Melanau River to experience two more of Mulu’s ‘must-see’ limestone caves, Wind Cave and Clearwater Cave, which form part of the Sarawak Chamber – the largest connected cave system in the world. After the tour, transfer to Mulu Marriott for one night. In the evening, take a night walk in the park to observe the forest’s nocturnal inhabitants. Overnight in Mulu National Park.

The Penan villagers live a nomadic way of life deep in the heart of the Sawarak rainforest, largely living a life of hunting and gathering meaning that they are reliant on their natural surroundings for survival. The Penan have suffered greatly from the large-scale deforestation and logging which is encroaching on the Sarawak landscape and, in turn, their way of life.
Situated along the Milinau River, Wind Cave – named so due to the cool breezes that can be felt down its narrow inlets – is part of the Clearwater system. Reachable from a 4km nature trail or long boat down the Melinau River to its opening, it is home to impressive rock calcite formations and a ‘King’s Chamber’, which features striking stalagmites and stalactites. A short 5-minute walk up a wooden path and you will reach Clearwater Cave, Asia’s longest cave. Made up of more than 100km of passages (with many more still yet to explore), it features a subterranean river and a number of plank-walks, paths and small floating bridges, making the cave easy to explore.
