Food Adventures in Malaysia: Day 13, Langs Cave in Gunung Mulu National Park

Jun 17, 2012 by     2 Comments    Posted under: Malaysia, Travel

Words can not even explain Langs Cave.  Truly awe inspiring with its colors, formations, crystal clear pools…..truly a once in a lifetime experience that I’m so lucky to have had.  Our guide was great and let us stay longer than we were supposed to, which gave me a chance to take it all in and get some great pictures.  No tasty treats to speak of, but one of the most beautiful things I’ve ever seen.

Borneo Cave Worms Picture

The little white strands in this picture are actually strands of saliva/mucus from cave worms. The worms drop these “spit” lines to snare insects that fly through the cave. Mmm….dinner. These are similar to the worms that were shown on Planet Earth – Caves.

Limestone Water Grows Stalagmites and Stalactites in Malaysian Caves

I thought this was so awesome….growing at the top and the bottom. I like that the camera picked up the water drops.

Langs Cave Crystal Clear Water Pools and Haunting Beauty

This growth in the pool of water was completely bizarre. I love the water drop circles.

  • Jothan, I knew Frank and Rishell in Wauconda and I am still in contact with her on Facebook-although I am currently taking a break from it-too much info. Anyway, she has mentioned your blog several times and I have glanced at it a few time. I read a few of your entries about your life changing trip to Malaysia and it was pure pleasure to hear someone describe some of the awesomeness of the rest of the world and other cultures.
    All of your photos are beautiful and the recipes look wonderful. Thanks.

    • Hi Connie. I’m glad you’ve been enjoying the blog. I wish I could say I remember you, but I was only 8 the last time I was in Wauconda. I remember it was beautiful there though. Rishell seems to be doing well and is happy, as I’m sure you know. Anyway, thanks for your support and comments.

I love hearing from my readers, so please go ahead and leave a comment!
