5D4N Gunung Mulu Summit

GUNUNG MULU SUMMIT TREK
The climb to the Summit of Gunung Mulu (2,376 m) is the toughest organized trek in the PARK. It required a high level of fitness and sense of advanture . Indeed Gunung Mulu has always attracted adventures. In the 19th Century, Spenser St John and Charles Hose, two old "Borneo Hands", attempted to conquer Mount Mulu. They and other explorers and mountaineers failed. It wasn't until 1920's , when a Berawan rhino hunter named "Tama Nilong" discovered the "south-west" ridge , that a way to the Summit was found. In 1932, Tama Nilong led Lord Shackleton and and Oxford University Expedition to the Summit of Mulu.Today's trek follows the route discovered in the 1920's . It is involves overnight stops at the Jungle Camps and offers a chance to experience the rainforest and perhaps see some rare animals and birds , including various species of Hornbill. The trek is usually done as a 4days hike, but experienced trekkers can do it less. A number of wooden huts are positioned along the trail and provide shelter for overnights stops. Trekker should go prepared . Good walking shoes are essential, as is a sleeping bag ( or blanket) as it can get cold. Food supplies , cooking utensils and sufficient water must also be taken. The Park guides and travel companies can arrange this.
