The Gunung Mulu National Park – a World Heritage Site – invites you to a breathtaking experience of some of the world’s most enthralling wonders of nature. The Park is situated on the great island of Borneo, in Sarawak (a state within the Federation of Malaysia). Mulu’s impressive canyons, untamed rivers, serene rain forests, imposing mountains, spectacular limestone pinnacles, and magnificent caves rank among the world’s most outstanding scenery. It is impossible not to feel awed by the rain forest, by its immense riches in plants and animals, by the sense of history spanning millions of years. Unrivalled wonders of nature abound, such as the thousands of bats that spiral from the Deer Cave entrance at dusk. Gunung Api is known to be the most cavernous mountain in the world. The pinnacles of Gunung Api, which are up to 45 m tall, form one of the world’s most dramatic limestone landscapes. Many extraordinary caves, including the world’s largest underground chamber, the Sarawak Chamber and Deer Cave, one of the largest cave passage in the world, are within the park. This book is not only a superb guide book to Mulu’s many attractions, but above all, a pictorial celebration of the wonders of God’s creation found in the Park. Through clear explanations and illuminating photographs it will greatly enhance your understanding of Mulu’s many natural wonders and add much to your experience and enjoyment.
