Getting There

 
OVERVIEW ...................................................................................................................................................................

Visiting Mulu World Heritage Area is a journey into the interior of Borneo. To get from the coastal city of Miri you must fly over impenetrable jungle or travel all day up the Baram, Tutoh and Melinau rivers to the mountains on the far horizon.

Trips overland to a nearby longhouse, then a 2 hour boat ride to the Park, are possible but very difficult. The only access is via logging roads which can be locked, washed out and in very poor condition.

There are no buses, no highways and certainly no taxis to Mulu. So it's the easy way by air or the scenic and slow, winding cruise by river.

You can also arrive from the north flying in from Kota Kinabalu in Sabah or hiking down the Head Hunter's Trail from Limbang.

Which ever adventure you choose to get to Mulu it is just an introduction to the jungle experience waiting for you.

Park entry tickets to a Sarawak World Heritage Area permits visitors to enter the park for an unlimited number of times over 5 calendar days. (Tickets are non-transferrable).

BY BOAT ............................................................................................................................................................................

Alternatively, a ten hour river trip from Miri to Mulu is possible. First catch an early morning taxi from Miri to Kuala Baram where an express boat takes you up the Baram River to arrive at Marudi around lunch time. 

Here you must change to a second, smaller boat to take you to Long Terawan, a small community of Berawan people on the Tutoh River, where you must hire an even smaller local longboat to bring you to the Park.

This is not a very reliable service as boats between Marudi and Long Terawan can be cancelled without warning if the river level is too low or there simply aren’t enough passengers. Visit the Visitor Information Centre in Miri if you want assistance to organize this trip or call

BY FOOT
..........................................................................................................................................................


It is possible to walk into Mulu via ‘The Headhunter’s Trail’ which takes its name from its historical role as the route taken by warring parties between the Tutoh and Medalam rivers. The trail runs between Limbang, a picturesque town on the Limbang River, entering Mulu on its northern boundary and trekking down through Camp 5 and then onto Mulu Park Head Quarters. (or visa versa).

The area is very isolated and the nearest town is many hours away, the trail is well marked and maintained but tree falls and river floods can cause confusion. If you want to travel the Headhunters Trail you must contact a licensed tour operator to make arrangements for you.
