My reason to go there: 
To hike Gunung Mulu, which is one of the G12 mountains of Malaysia, since Mulu caves are also in the same national park, we took a day to visit them all.

Mulu caves are absolutely beautiful, no wonder they are listed under UNESCO Heritage site

Places of interest: 
Deer cave - Awesome, large and bold
Langs cave - Small and intimate, with walls beautifully decorated with long shawls, layers of rim stone pools on the floor, and throughout the cave, spectacular stalagmites and stalactites
Clear Water cave - Has a subterranean river creates which creates a crystal-clear pool that gives it its name, a good place for a cool refreshing swim
Wind cave - Has majestic columns and stalagmites in the King’s Chamber, one of the most beautiful cave here
Bat Observatory - Watch 3 million bats leave the cave between 5.30 pm and 6.30 pm daily
