The Summit Trail

4 1

The trek to the top of Gunung Mulu is not to be taken lightly.

No pic at the moment -- Sorry!

It requires a lot of walking -- sometimes up to eight hours in a day.

The whole trek is 24 kilometres long and reaches an altitude of 2,377 metres; my maths isn't great but that's a whole lot of steep.

You will be sleeping in basic conditions in camps along the way and share the cooking duties with your guide.

This is perhaps the most difficult ‘walk' at Mulu and I can't stress enough how fit you have to be for this trek. Leave the kids at home for this one.

The trip leaves daily at 09:15 and takes four days and three nights.
