Deer and Lang Caves

Deer and Lang’s Cave Tour

Tour Code: MZV1

Duration – Half Day – afternoon only

It goes without saying that any tour of Mulu should also include the popular tourist Caves – the Clearwater and Wind Caves, and the Deer and Lang Caves. The stalactites and stalagmites in Lang’s Cave are some of the best to be found in Mulu National Park.

Depart the Royal Mulu Resort after lunch for a visit to the 480 metre long Canopy Skywalk – the longest canopy walkway in the world. (this part of the tour is optional and is subject to availability. It must be pre-arranged) Proceed by longboat or by van/minibus to Park Headquarters.

From the Park HQ, you will take a scenic 3km boardwalk through primary rainforest to the entrance of Deer Cave. The cave has a moon-like landscape and from one vantage point, a perfect profile of President Lincoln can be observed.

Most evenings at dusk, a spectacular exodus of about 2 million of bats can be observed as they leave the Deer Cave in search of food. This spectacular makes a late afternoon visit to the Cave a high priority on the list of “must do’s” while in Mulu. The entry to the Deer Cave is the largest of any cave in the world – St. Paul’s Cathedral would fit comfortably under its archway.
