4-Day Mulu Caves & Pinnacle Expedition
Wander Through the Famous Mulu Caves
Trek to the Amazing Pinnacle Summit
4 days, 3 nights
Discover the showcaves and climb up the Mulu Pinnacles
This tour combines the spectacular showcase of Mulu with a physical challenge Pinnacle Summit Trek. The first two days of the tour explores the extensive underground system in Mulu including the spectacular and immense Sarawak Chamber which is the largest known natural cave chamber in the world. This is where you can also watch the spectacular bat flights in their pre-dawn cave exit. Deer Cave and Clearwater Cave is one of the largest single cave passages and one of the longest caves in the world respectively.
The last 2 days of the tour explore the spectacular Pinnacle which consist of a series of 45 meter high, razor-sharp limestone spikes that tower above the surrounding vegetation, mid-way up the slopes of Gunung Api. The Pinnacle Summit Trek is a tough and challenging one. The trail itself is very steep (near vertically parts) and requires a certain level of fitness. Fit and experienced trekkers should be able to reach the top in 2-3 hours on the trail that is 2.4 km in length but rises some 1,200 meters from Camp 5. The descent is actually more difficult and therefore takes longer, so the return trip can take anything from 5 to 10 hours depending on fitness level.
