You don’t fancy extreme stuffs (eg adventure caving, walk in jungles for whole day); you just want a relaxing vacation at Mulu; you’ve been to the standard tour that most websites publish consists of:
1. walk to Lang Cave and Deer Cave (world largest cave entrance), and watch bats fly out from cave at dusk, and
2. use longboat to visit Wind Cave & Clearwater Cave. Swim at the clearwater river, visit to the Penan Settlement to buy souvenir, or
3. trek to Pinnacles (normally with 2 nights at camp5).

Here’s additional things you can do, if you just want to relax vacation:

1. jungle canopy walk (register at park HQ) RM35 per person.
