Wind Cave at Mulu National Park, Sarawak, Malaysia

Wind Cave in Mulu National Park, Sarawak, Malaysia

Wind Cave at Mulu - Cave information

The Wind Cave or Cave of the Winds (Gua Angin in Malay) is located just next to the Clearwater Cave off the Melinau River at the Mulu National Park in Sarawak. This cave is usually the first stop before heading over to the next cave system which is a short 5 minute walk via a wooden walkway along the outside of the cave next to the river.

Another thing about the Wind Cave is that this is also part of the Clearwater Cave system. But the speciality of the Wind Cave is the cool breeze that flows through this cave as you are inside and also the unique formations of *stalagmite and stalactites. (*They are the funny long formations you see growing down from he ceiling or coming up from the ground ~ lay man terms)

Wind Cave at Mulu - Unique stalagmites and stalactites

The Wind Cave also has some really unique rock formations, stalagmites and stalactites. There is an area in the Wind Cave called the Kings Room or Chamber which have majestic columns of stalagmites and stalactites.

Wind Cave at Mulu - Kings Room or Chamber

These beautiful majestic columns in the Kings Chamber make the other stalagmites and stalactites from the other caves around Mulu look puny. They have been formed over the millions of years there so please do not try to touch them as when I was there, I saw some locals trying to reach out and touch them when the park guide told them off.

The Wind Caves here are also a great place to practice your semi-pro photography. Without flash mind you.

Wind Cave at Mulu - Walkway to the Clearwater Caves

When you are done at the Wind Caves or Cave of the Winds, you can make your way to the Clearwater Caves by walking along the wooden walkway. The journey only takes about 5 minutes and you will pass the river on your left.

There is a camp site at the end of this walk where toilets are available. From there, your next caving experience will lead you up 200 stairs to the Clearwater Caves. Your guide and boat man will be at the jetty below waiting for you once you complete your tour of the caves here.

Info on this Lang Cave can be found at the Mulu Park website.

Hello Squawks, thanks for the visit. Yes, I love going outdoors compared to the city we live in

Cath, Some caves like the Deer Cave has a strong smell of bat guano, but the show caves, smaller ones are alright. This one was nice.

As for your normal cam, better to bring a stand and use. I shot some pics with a normal digital cam too.

Mar'amit, thanks for the comment and the adventure gets better! More places to come.
