Must see when in Mulu. Even my 8 years old daughter made 4 km trek to see this and found it enjoyable. Evening bat exodus was amazing as well.

This is the Cave with “the bats” and EVERYONE does it......but like a continuous circle of groups of people going in and out all day. It is well done with a little restaurant just before the entrance with seats to watch the bats - but in the 3 days we were there the bats just did not come out. I would give this one a miss and go and see some of the ones that are more difficult to get to but so much more worthwhile i.e. the Fast Lane or Clearwater. Less popular and a bit of a push to get it as they don’t have so much interest and they do take longer so the guides are out for more of the day ...... but do it.

We were really impressed with the immense size of this cave it's a stunning reward after the 4km walk together there. We had a great guide who was very knowledgeable and explained so many points as we went around. Great walkways make it quite easy.
Don't forget to take a torch (also a good idea to take a pair of gloves for any of the cave walks as the rails are covered in bat poo and other creepy crawlies. !!!).
So many great photo opportunities, which never truly catch the scale of his cave.

A rain cover is also a good idea as it often rains on the way back from the caves late afternoon......

In summary don't miss these caves, a once off opportunity....

Visited both: Deer & Lang. Both are stunning. Lang has the most fantastic array of stalagtites and stalagmites, Deer reputedly the largest cavern in the world. The bats fly out at around 1720 so be sure to be at the observatory in time. It's around 1 hrs walk to and from the Park HQ, there is a small shop by the bat observatory 200m from the caves. Take plenty of water.
