Adventure into a Rock ForestSarawak, Malaysia
The pinnacles of World Heritage-listed Mulu National Park have to be seen to be believed. Imagine sword-like blades of eroded limestone piercing from the verdant forest floor. The pinnacles cling to the side of Gunung Api (Fire Mountain) on Malaysian Borneo, with some reaching heights of up to 50 metres. You can witness this peculiar landscape on a strenuous three-day trek departing from Mulu National Park headquarters.
Flights with MasWings and Malaysia Airlines operate regularly from Miri, Kuching and Kota Kinabalu to Mulu. On arrival, you’ll find airport shuttles to Mulu National Park.
Treks can be booked through the national park for about US$97 a person, including guide, longboat transfers and accommodation.
