Meet the guide and transfer to your accommodation for check in (for morning arrival only). We proceed by van to Park HQ. Take the plank walk to visit DEER CAVE, one of the biggest cave passages in the world. Close to Deer Cave is LANG'S CAVE, small but beautifully decorated. In the evening we will wait at the entrance to Deer Cave, where thousands of bats emerge most evenings to hunt for insects over the forest. We then return late in the afternoon to Park HQ and transfer your accommodation for dinner and overnight. (*Lunch, Dinner)

Day 2: Wind & Clearwater Caves / Longboat ride & Trek to Camp 5 (B, L, D)
After breakfast we depart by longboat at 0830hrs to the source of the Clearwater River. We first stop at Batu Bungan Penan Settlement for a short excursion of the settlement. You are able to see the hand made handicraft like baskets, bangles, mats by the Penan tribe. From there we go by boat to visit WIND CAVE with unusual calcite formations, including the tall, slender stalagmites in King's Room. Just a few hundred meters upriver lies CLEARWATER CAVE where you have to climb 200 steps to the cave's main entrance; visit the Lady's Cave and the underground river. The pool at Clearwater Spring is a nice place to swim and picnic. After lunch we go by boat beyond Clearwater Cave. From Long Lutu, an easy 3 hrs walk through virgin forest bring us to a Park hut on the bank of the MELINAU RIVER where it leaves the MELINAU GORGE. We overnight at Camp 5 (Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner)
Day 3: Climb to Pinnacles Viewpoint / Return to Camp 5 (B, L, D)
The limestone mountains of Mulu are bedecked with sharp needles: the biggest and best examples, "THE PINNACLES", are on the north end of GUNUNG API mountain. Early breakfast and this morning we climb over 1000m up the steep path to a viewpoint overlooking the Pinnacles (the steepest sections have aluminum ladders for safety). If the weather is good, the four hour climb will be rewarded with wide views over the forest to Brunei and the South China Sea. Return to Camp 5 for another overnight stay. (Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner)
