Sarawak Day 5 – Into the forest – Mulu National Park

Apologies but we have very limited internet in the rainforest so more photos to follow when we get back to Kuching tomorrow evening.

We are now in Mulu National Park surrounded by rich lowland rainforest and surrounded by the dramatic limestone mountains of Mulu. We are back from a day in the forests where we found lots of orchids, a beautiful Bornean Pit Viper, flying lizards, and three million bats.

The bats live in Deer Cave, the worlds largest cave, and we explored this with its floor of bat guano as well as Lang’s Cave at the end of a forest walk. We stayed to watch the bats fly out in large murmurations (photo above if it uploads). The girls are fine and ready for another day in the forest.
