Day 02: Kuching
Day 2 is an enchanting beach and rainforest adventure as you head to Bako National Park for some hiking along this beautiful jungle covered coastline.
Bako is a wonderful place for trekking and wildlife, so you will be able to spend the day wandering the trails in search of epic views and wildlife like the endemic Proboscis monkey.
After you visit Bako, we’ll take you back to Kuching in the late afternoon where the rest of the day will be yours.
Day 03: Kuching
On day 3, attend the Bumbu Cooking Class in downtown Kuching.
Your instructors will take you on a walk to the local market to buy your ingredients for the day. They will teach you about the different kinds of foods and ingredients you can find in the market and why those ingredients make the local dishes taste so good.
After you visit the market, head back to the kitchen and start preparing some of the famous local dishes that Sarawak is known for.
The class is only a half day, so you will have the remainder of the day to explore the city or simply relax.
Day 04: Kuching – Saloma Homestay
On your fourth day, you’ll get out of the city for two nights at a lovely homestay known as Saloma Homestay. Your host Saloma and her wonderful family will show you the welcoming culture of the Bidayuh people of Sarawak. On the way there, you will stop by the Semenggoh Orangutan Rehabilitation center to see the Orangutans being fed.
Saloma and her parents will welcome you into their village as family. Saloma will take you on a tour around the village and show you how to make handicrafts. If that’s not enough, you will get to enjoy the wonderful traditional bidayuh cooking and even join in the food prep if you wish.

This is a one of a kind homestay experience with Saloma and her family.
Day 06: Saloma Homestay – Tanjung Datu National Park
Following your stay at Saloma Homestay, you will head for Tanjung Datu National Park. You will cross over land to the village of Sematan and from there you will take a boat to this incredible national park.
Once you arrive and get settled in, explore the surroundings, visit the turtle hatchery or just relax at the beach before dinner at the Park Headquarters.
After dark, you can follow the guide for a night walk to search for wildlife. However, the real point of the walk is to check the beach to see if any turtles have come ashore to nest. If you are lucky, you will find a nesting turtle.
Day 07: Tanjung Datu National Park
Following breakfast, you will head out for some trekking in this stunning national park. The dipterocarp forests dip right into the sea in the park and forest is full of wildlife. On your trek, look for Gibbons, banded Languor, Hornbills, and more. Your trek ends at an amazing beach where you can swim.

In the evening, you will again be able to follow the ranger out for a night walk to check for nesting turtles.

In the afternoon, your guide will take you on a trek through the jungle towards the Deer & Lang Caves. The guide will teach you all about the caves and their historical and geological importance.
In the late afternoon, you will have the once in a lifetime experience of witnessing millions of bats exiting the caves for the night. Return to your accommodation as the sun sets over the national park.
Day 11: Mulu National Park
Today, you will make your way up the Meliau river on a traditional longboat and visit a Penan longhouse.
Later, you will continue upstream over rapids and arrive at the Clearwater & Wind Caves. You will explore these stunning caves with your guide.
These caves make up part of a massive system of caves in Mulu National Park. The formations and sheer size of the caves is something to marvel at.
After you exit the caves, you will head further up river and a two hour trek to your camp for the night. The camp is known as Camp 5 and will be the starting point for your trek to the famous Mulu Pinnacles the following day.
Day 12: Mulu Pinnacles
The gruelling trek to the pinnacles will provide you with ultimate reward. This trek ascends 1200 meters in just 2.5 kilometers. That being said, the view when you reach the top is nothing short of breathtaking as you lay your eyes on the Mulu Pinnacles.
You will reach back to Camp 5 in the early afternoon. Feel free to rest following the tough trek. Additionally, you can cool down with a nice swim in the river
