Some Images of Mulu National Park
Some snippets of our time in Mulu NP.
Well Hello Everyone……we have been in isolation for the last 4 days. Mulu is a beautiful spot, not really even a village, only 1 little mini mart type shop with nothing in it. We did buy some chocolates there but couldn’t eat them, I think they had been melted over and over in the tropical heat and were pretty disgusting. Thank god the resort had a little very expensive shop that at least had some picnic and crunchie bars.

Our Digs at Kundasang
Well we had a great start to the day, got to the park around 8 am and soon as we paid at the gate we wound our windows down and started listening for birds. After only about ten minutes we pulled over as we could hear some birds quite loud, we got out of the car and looked and looked but they were just behind a wall of trees so we couldn’t quite see them. I was looking through my binoculars and all of a sudden I realised I could see some talons on a tree branch and after manoeuvring a bit I could see it was an owl sitting there asleep and the birds were literally flying around his head and he wasn’t one bit bothered. Maybe he had one of them for breakfast and they obviously weren’t happy. We just couldn’t believe it, what a find, if I hadn’t been looking through binoculars we wouldn’t have seen him. Anthony had to put his extender on the camera to get a good photo as it was quite dark in amongst the trees and the owl was quite a distance away. He is a Barred eagle owl, just fantastic to see.
Langanan Waterfall Trek
Wow what a day, started the day fresh as daisies, got up nice and early, had a quick breakfast at the restaurant here and were away by 8 am to climb this mountain where there’s a beautiful waterfall. We had to walk through the hot baths to get to the waterfall track and the staff were cleaning everything, getting it all ready for another busy day. It was really peaceful there this morning, nobody there.
Hello everyone, we had a good transition day, a leisurely taxi ride to the airport, not much traffic as it’s Sunday, what a great day to leave Bangkok. We picked up the car, no problems, we were there early but they still had the car ready for us. We arrived at our new abode the Arantakiri Resort which is only about 5 kms from the gates into the Khao Yai National Park. It’s nice surrounds here, apart from lots of dogs over the other side of the river barking alot, it is quite peaceful. We had a quick walk around, found some new dragonflies and that beautiful extra large grasshopper, what a beauty the pattern on its body is amazing, it screeched because Anthony put his hand on it and he couldn’t see what he touched,he thought there was a frog in that bush. It’s actually called a Giant False-Leaf Katydid and we always feel so lucky to stumble across these amazing creatures. I hope we never lose that feeling of awe and excitement and respect for all the critters we see, we wish that others could look at them the same way.
