deer cave - mulu (borneo)

The mouth of Deer Cave in Gunung Mulu National Park (Borneo)

This is the cave mouth on the side of the "Garden of Eden", i.­e.­ the far side.­

Deer Cave is a passage about 150 m (500 feet) in diameter and about 1 Km (0.­6 Miles) long, opened on both end.­ It was, for many years, considered the largest single cave passage in the world.­

Deer Cave is a passage about 150 m (500 feet) in diameter and about 1 Km (0.­6 Miles) long, opened on both end.­ It was, for many years, considered the largest single cave passage in the world.­

Deer Cave is home to about 4 million Wrinkle Lipped Bats that live in colonies high up in the cave ceiling.­ Every evening all the bats fly out in huge swarms and clouds to feed.­ View my video of the swarm of bats leaving Deer Cave.
