Best natural places you should enjoy in Malaysia!
Malaysia is a Southeast Asian country occupying parts of the Malay Peninsula and the island of Borneo. It's known for its beaches, rainforests, natural island. Beside of shopping and food. For the advanture, below are some place worth to discover for every traveler.
1. Gunung Mulu National Park
Famous for its extraordinary limestone karst formations and phenomenal cave systems, the Gunung Mulu National Park is one of the most awe-inspiring natural attractions in all of Southeast Asia. Located in Malaysian Borneo in the Sarawak State, this national park features some of the largest and longest cave systems in the world. Included in these is the world’s largest cave chamber, the Sarawak Chamber, which is estimated large enough to hold 40 Boeing 747 aircraft.
Deer Cave: Once listed as the largest cave passage in the world, Deer Cave now holds the record as the largest traversable cave passage. The two-kilometer-long, 174-metre-high passage takes approximately an hour to navigate; the caves are home to countless bats that cling to the ceiling.
Cave of the Winds: Filled with hundreds of stalagmites and stalactites, the Cave of the Winds, has several chambers. Along the way you’ll pass the Batu Bungan settlement where you can purchase knick knacks under the shaded green canopy.
Clearwater Cave: Most people enjoy a trip to Clearwater Cave because the longest cave in Southeast Asia has an inviting swimming hole just outside its entrance. Sarawak Chamber: It may be hard to traverse the distance necessary to get to this cave that, figuratively, seems to lie at the centre of the Earth, but the trip is well worth the effort. The yawning cavern is simply magnificent and the 12-hour long journey will simply be forgotten – at least until you’re making your way back. Accommodation available.
2. Sipadan Island
Pulau Sipadan or Sipadan Island is located on the island of Borneo, in the state of Sabah. It is an island depicting exquisiteness and serenity in its truest sense, with its beauty exemplified by the rich diversity of coral reefs and underwater life. It can justifiably be called one of its kind, as there is none which can match its fascination and splendor. Scuba divers express great interest in coming to this island because of its exemplary beauty and because it is ideal for this activity.
The island looks pretty much like any other island found in our waters but the only difference is that, millions of years ago, Sipadan was formed by an undersea volcano, which means that it is a deepwater oceanic island. In fact, it's the only one of its kind in Malaysia. Dropping to a depth of 600m or 2,000ft to seabed, it can be daunting for new divers. A narrow shelf, lining the island and then a sudden drop into darkness, is not for all divers.
Just below the surface is an alien world, a bizarre backdrop for a wondrous dream. The coral reef skirts Sipadan just below the surface and as far as 164feet down, providing one of the best wall dive experiences.

Or rather, the Three Days Two Nights climb allows you to acclimatize and spend some leisurely time at Kinabalu Park where you can go for short hikes as a little prep-up.
Kinabalu Park marks Malaysia’s first UNESCO World Heritage Site. The park plays host to the 140 million year old rainforest stretching across Borneo. It is also righteous in its role as one of the most important biological sites in the world with more than 4,500 species of flora and fauna, including 326 bird and around 100 mammal species.
