DAY 2

KUCHING – MIRI – LAMBIR NATIONAL PARK

Early morning transfer to airport for departure flight to Miri. On arrival, meet and drive to Lambir National Park, an area of outstanding beauty covering 6,952 hectares. The park is rich in biodiversity and is visible from Miri as a chain of steep sandstone hills bound by rugged cliffs. The higher ridges and slopes are covered by heath forest while the lower slopes and valleys are dominated by mixed dipterocarp forest. The ground flora consists of an unusual variety of palm trees, which give an exotic feel to the park. Lambir is also home to more than 100 bird species. Due to its rugged terrain, the park has a number of small but beautiful waterfalls. Upon arrival at the park headquarters, enjoy an included lunch, register and obtain a permit. Then start trekking to a series of waterfalls. Enjoy a swim in the cool waters or go a short jungle hike. Walk back to the park HQ and return to Miri and check into the Miri Marriott Resort & Spa for a 1-night stay on a bed and breakfast basis.

DAY 3

MULU – DEER & LANG CAVES

Transfer to airport for flight to morning flight to Mulu, where we transfer to the Mulu Marriott Resort & Spa for a 1-night stay on a bed and breakfast basis. In the afternoon, visit the park and enjoy a scenic 3 km plank walk through primary rainforest to the entrance of Deer Cave. Deer Cave is the world's largest cave passage; its scale its awesome! The entrance of the cave is 150 m wide and 120 m high. The cave has a moon-like landscape and from one vantage point, a perfect profile of President Lincoln can be observed. Next to Deer Cave is Langs Cave. The stalactites and stalagmites inside this cave are representative of the very best limestone formations in the park. After viewing the two caves, proceed to the Bat Observatory outside Deer Cave. Most evenings at sundown, a spectacular exodus of about 2 million of bats can be observed as they leave the cave in search of food. Then trek back to the park HQ by torchlight and return to the resort.

DAY 4

WIND & CLEARWATER – KUCHING

In the morning, proceed by longboat upriver to Wind Cave with its impressive 'King's Chamber'. A short walk along a plank walk next to the limestone cliff followed by a climb up approximately 250 concrete steps and you arrive at the entrance to Clearwater Cave. Here, stalactites and stalagmites with delicate lace-like patterns are found. A short walk along a plank walk next to the limestone cliff leads to Clearwater Cave. Like most caves in Mulu, Clearwater Cave provides a habitat for unique species of plants. One of these, the one-leafed plant can only be found at Mulu. Photosensitive algae grow on certain rocks and produce needle-like formations that point towards the source of light. Near Clearwater cave there is a wonderful swimming area shaded by giant rainforest trees. Enjoy a picnic lunch, swim or relax before returning to the resort.
