Pinnacles

The Pinnacles are a series of 45-metre high limestone formations that protrude skywards in the shape of spikes. Located on the way to Api Mountain in Mulu Park, reaching the Pinnacles is a tough climb which requires a certain degree of fitness.

The reward is a fantastic view of the limestone spikes that you can even explore and climb around.

Satang Island

The Satang Islands are a special place for Green turtles to come and lay their eggs. Located near Santubong, these islands have been gazetted as a turtle sanctuary and collection of eggs for the dinner table has been banned.

Here, you can visit the nurseries and see how the rangers collect, monitor and release them to sea.
