Mulu National Park lies in the interior of Sarawak’s rainforest, about 100 km east of Miri. This UNESCO World Heritage site is home to the world-famous Mulu Caves, like Deer Cave or Clearwater Cave. Different adventurous jungle treks lead visitors through this stunning national park, with a chance of observing wildlife and exploring Mulu’s amazing flora. One of these treks is the famous Headhunter’s Trail. This route was used in the old days during the tribal wars by the Kayan tribe, who came by boat from Baram area via the Melinau river. The Kayan war parties then carried or dragged their boats overland along this trail to Terikan river, to attack and raid the tribes in the Limbang area.
The Headhunter’s Trail leads through riverine forest for 2 days and some parts of the way have to be travelled by boat – a perfect blend of adventure and nature!
