Whether you're after a relaxation break in the deep rainforests of Borneo, an adventure holiday climbing through expansive caves and towering summits, or a combination of the two, Gunung Mulu National Park, one of the most majestic and thrilling nature parks in south-east Asia, has it all. Located in northern Sarawak, the park spreads over 52,800 hectares, with mighty limestone pinnacles, thick untouched jungle, and an Abraham Lincoln-shaped outcrop dominating the scenery.
Offering thousands of spectacular plant species dotted over 17 vegetation zones, few national parks pack so many natural marvels into one small area. For adventure types, the rugged peaks and deep gorges provide fantastic climbing opportunities with views over the crystal-clear rivers and the Pinnacles, a forest of razor-sharp limestone spires.
Declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2005, Mulu is also home to a mind-boggling 295km worth of cave systems, and in the early evening, millions of wrinkle-lipped bats band together and emerge from the Deer Cave in a cloud-like exodus - an event not to be missed!
