Progressive exploration of the Mulu caves has led to various connections which have eventually established large interconnected systems.
There are currently four distinct systems in the Park. These are listed below in order of length.
- The Clearwater Cave System: 215.339km
- The Benarat Caverns System: 50.19km
- The Terikan Caves System: 32.5km
- The Cobra/Cloud/Bridge Caves System: 20.63km
The Clearwater Cave System is currently one of the top ten longest caves in the world, although it is almost certainly the largest cave in the world by volume (read more..)
Continual exploration in all the world’s major caves make the list of longest caves a continually changing rota. While Mammoth Cave in Kentucky, USA stands head and shoulders above the rest in terms of sheer length at 627.7 kilometres, other caves are constantly jostling for ranking as new discoveries extend their length.
