Wander Pi Wednesdays: Exploring Borneo’s Clearwater Cave

Every Wednesday, I’ll be sharing one of my favorite photos from my travels.

Gunung Mulu National Park is one of the most remote areas of Borneo. The only practical way of getting in and out of the area is by air. The park itself is surrounded by impenetrable rainforest and a vast web of wild rivers. Mulu, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is home to some of the biggest caves in the world and a wide assortment of rare plants and animals. I took this photo while exploring Clearwater Cave, Asia’s longest cave which measures some 66 miles. The cave gets its name from the crystal clear water that rushes through it, resulting in a vast subterranean river. I really enjoyed exploring Mulu and its immense network of caves. When I was young, every kid my age wanted to be Indiana Jones and this is the closest I’ve gotten so far.
