Mulu Headhunters Trail
Similar to the Mulu Pinnacles trail, only that after ascending the pinnacles we proceed to journey across landscape by an old headhunters trail through gentle countryside to Kuala Terikan. From here, we take a boat across river rapids to an authentic Iban longhouse for overnight. Thereafter we depart from either Limbang airport or from Brunei.
Meet on arrival at Mulu airport and transfer to your accommodation. In the afternoon we will register at Mulu Park HQ and visit the Education Centre. Take the 3 km plankwalk to explore Lang's and Deer Caves. We will watch the evening exodus of bats at the Observatory. Return to the Park HQ and transfer to our accommodation. (Dinner)
We will take a boat in the morning traveling upstream on the Melinau River to explore Wind Caves and Clearwater Caves. After lunch at Clearwater Hut, we will travel by boat to Long Litut. We will trek through lowland forest for 8.8 km to Camp 5. Dinner and stay overnight at Camp 5. (Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner)
After breakfast, we will ascend Mt. Api to an elevation of 1200 m to view the Pinnacles. Packed lunch at the viewpoint before we descend to camp 5 for dinner and stay overnight. (Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner)
After breakfast, we will trek 12km on gentle elevation through the rainforest on former hunting trail to Kuala Terikan. We will take a boat from here shooting the rapids on the Terikan and Medalam rivers to an Iban Ionghouse for dinner and stay overnight. (Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner)
After breakfast, we bid farewell to our host and take the boat to Medamit and overland to Limbang airport for your flight out or overland back to Kota Kinabalu. (Breakfast)

My husband and I did a 13 day tour with Borneo Eco Tours from Kuching to Mulu to Kota Kinabalu to Sepilok to Sandakan. Our personal highlights were staying with the Iban in a traditional longhouse, Mulu National Park (the Marriott there is spectacular), and Sukau River basin. From snorkeling with clownfish to seeing orangutans and pygmy elephants in the wild, we were amazed by the wildlife! If only they would stay out in the open for photos! The trip was a bit taxing since visiting Sarawak and Sabah required multiple domestic flights and hours of driving overland, but we knew that when we booked the tour. For the most part, our guides spoke very good English and we weren't too rushed (my husband loves to take photos!). I would recommend Boreno Eco Tours!
