Mulu National Park is home to Deer Cave, one of Borneo’s most popular tourist attractions. This natural rock chamber, the largest in the world, can hold forty 747’s standing side by side. The cave is home to swiftlets, bats and insects. More than 1 million bats leave the cave each day in search of food, returning later in the evening. Deer Cave is only accessible by a plank walk-way through the rainforest. Watch out for snakes though, they hang out on the handrails.
The Sepilok Orang-utan Rehabilitation Centre rehabilitates and trains orangutans to survive in the wild. Visitors to the center can see the orangutans during their feeding times from platforms. The orangutans come swinging in on ropes, land on their feeding platforms and eat their bananas. Some orangutans come within feet of tourists making the experience even better.
Try white-water rafting on the Padas River for an exciting adventure. The 9 km trip will have your adrenalin rushing at top speed as you raft through III and IV-class rapids. Padas River is only accessible by train so getting to the river is half the fun. As you ride the oldest train in Borneo you will pass through the Murut tribe, famous for their head-hunting skills.
