Bat exodus in Mulu Caves

This was indeed the reward of trekking in Mulu national park: to see millions of bats fly in a single stream in a snaking formation . At sunset, every day, they leave the Deer Cave (where they rest and roost) to spend the night feeding on insects in the rainforest of Mulu National Park, a world heritage site in Sarawak, Malaysia. Ten trekkers from Singapore were there on 18th Sep 2008 to witness this unforgettable sight. For over 20 minutes we saw the beauty of God’s creation: bats in flight formation!

Sunrise at Poon Hill

The trek began early in the morning. We were all geared up and well covered. There was nervousness and anticipation mixed together. It really helped that we were team and we had a reliable guide in Pasang. We all wanted to enjoy the beauty of sunrise at Poon Hill. We arrived early. The sun was not up yet. It was dark and moonlit. Everybody was jostling for good positions. Men were setting up camera stands from different points each wanting the best perspective. Some were drinking hot coffee or chocolate. When we talked we could see vapour from our mouth. Our teeth chattered. I lost track of where my friends were.
