Description: Gunung Mulu National Park, located on the island of Borneo in the State of Sarawak, is the world’s most studied tropical karst area, equally significant for its high biodiversity and for its karst features. A 2,377 m-high sandstone pinnacle, the Gunung Mulu, dominates the park. With its seventeen zones, the 52,864-ha park shows evidence of some 3,500 species of vascular plants. Exceptionally rich in palm species, the site boasts 109 species in twenty noted genera. It is home to millions of cave swiftlets and bats; its 295 km of explored caves offer a stunning sight. The Sarawak Chamber (600m x 415m and 80m high) is the world’s largest known cave chamber. --WHMNet paraphrase from the description at WHC Site, where additional information is available.
