Difficulty

The first stage of the tour (from Mulu park to Camp 5) is a 1-2 hour boat trip along the Melinau River to Kuala Berar. If the water level is low, the boat has to be pushed over rocky sections so the trip takes longer. Base Camp 5 is relatively easy 7.8 km walk from Kuala Berar, following flat jungle terrain and taking 2-3 hours.

The trail to view the Pinnacles is only 2.4 km long but rises 1,200m and the last section is near vertical with ropes and ladders to climb. Fit, experienced trekkers may reach the top in 2–3 hours, the not so fit around 4–5 hours. For many, the descent is more difficult and can take 5 hours or more.

Day 3Pinnacles

This morning you will rise early and begin the 2.4km steep trek to the Pinnacles viewpoint at 1750 m. Along this trail there are many wild orchids, pitcher plants and tiny tree shrews foraging for food. The Pinnacles consists of a series of 45 m high, razor-sharp limestone spikes that tower above the surrounding vegetation.

The hike to the viewpoint is a tough and challenging mountain climbing, however you will be rewarded with a spectacular view of a silver forest of stone, poking up through the surrounding jungle.
