Exploring Bats, Caves & Skywalks in Borneo at Mulu National Park in Sarawak

I’m on a mission to explore as much of Malaysia while I’m living here as possible and Borneo was high on my list!  Come with me on day one of my amazing adventure at Gunung Mulu National Park, a highlight of all my travels in 2016.  It’s a UNESCO World Heritage Site filled with amazing experiences in the Sarawak rain forest.  I walked on a half kilometre Canopy Skywalk and was in the Deer & Lang Caves, which boast over 2 MILLION bats! In fact, I saw thousands of bats, walked for hours in some of the prettiest forest I’ve seen in my life, and had a blast that day.

The canopy skywalk experience was a group guided tour through Mulu Park, which was very fun. Then I booked a private VIP tour though the (OMG so fabulous!!) Mulu Marriott where I was staying (review launching soon) with their top guide Steve Duloi and we had a blast.  A special thanks to the Sarawak Tourism Board for helping me plan my trip, it was absolutely perfect.
