Backyard Travel, the online boutique tour operator specializing in insider tours throughout Asia, today announced a new Malaysian Borneo tour that takes travelers into the UNESCO-listed jungles of Mulu National Park. Featuring lush forests, subterranean caverns and endemic wildlife, the 3-day, 2-night Epic Caves and Dense Jungles Tour introduces adventurers to some of the world’s most breathtaking geological wonders.

Measuring more than 520 square kilometers, Mulu National Park offers endless opportunities for exploration, above and below the earth. On this tour, travelers are guided through its otherworldly cave systems via jungle walks along an elevated walkway, and a river journey deep into the park’s lush terrain. The tour explores Lang and Wind Caves, as well as the world’s largest known underground chamber, Deer Cave. It also traverses the cavernous King’s Room, and offers the option of a torchlight tour through one of the newer cave systems in the park, winding through 1.5 kilometres of underground passageways. All throughout the tour, travelers will be able to spot Borneo’s fascinating wildlife, from the distinctive proboscis monkey to colonies of free-tailed bats.

“Caves are one of travel’s final frontiers, and at the scale of those found in Mulu National Park, they inspire a level of excitement and awe that’s hard to match with any other terrain,” says Maeve Nolan, General Manager of Backyard Travel. “In this tour, we’re answering the demand for holidays that reveal more of Borneo, while giving adventurers the chance to broaden – or deepen – their horizons with forays into one of the planet’s most extreme and unknown environments.”
