“Lovely caves but can be smelly”
Reviewed 18 August 2014

If you plan to do 'Mulu' caves and 'Niah' caves, make sure you do Niah first as they are wonderful caves, but are dwarfed by Mulu in both size and spectacle. If taking small children, be aware the walk is long and the weather can be very hot and humid, take plenty of water and be prepared for tired kids. Also take your own torches as there is no lighting in the caves and the torches available at the caves are poor quality and expensive.

“Breathtaking”
Reviewed 14 August 2014

Must go and see with family. My kids (4yr n 8yr) walked all way upto niah cave and was a great bonding experience. Highly recommended for team building. Best to go in groups for double fun.

Most other precautions/notes written by others, so night repeating.

“The Amazing Niah Cave”
Reviewed 4 August 2014

The Niah Cave is approximately 3 km from the HQ. It was a long walk but worth it.Of course along the way, we enjoyed the beauty of nature including the wildlife. The Niah Cave is amazing. You may need to know the history prior exploring the cave. For me, only then you will be in awe standing inside the enormous world heritage.There is a museum not far from the jetty for you to get some info. If you are planning to come, please wear appropriate attire because some areas might be slippery and it can be hot and humid. Bring more water to avoid dehydration.

“Amazing place”
Reviewed 23 July 2014

Niah is a must-see; find out where birds nest soup comes from. The plank walk is unique, but we warned it is hot and humid.

“Long hot trek but worth it”
Reviewed 14 July 2014

Fantastic and fascinating, it's a long hog trek to the caves but we had loads of gun wildlife spotting along the way, especially bugs. The caves are enormous and absolutely breathtaking. Well worth the walk.
