Abraham Lincoln, (1809-1865) born in Kentucky, USA was the 16th President of the United States...
He was regarded as one of the best and most influential President of the United States in history.
And deep in the jungles of Borneo, lies the world's most extraordinary cave systems in the globally famous Gunung Mulu National Parks near Miri, Sarawak.
Gunung Mulu National Park is a UNESCO World Heritage Site that encompasses incredible caves and karst formations in a mountainous equatorial rainforest setting.
The park is famous for its caves and multi shaped rocks formations, formed by nature and geological process about 5 million years ago..
Within Gunung Mulu National Park is the world's biggest natural enclosed space - Sarawak chamber, found in Gua Nasib Bagus.
The Sarawak chamber is 2,300 feet (700 m) long, 1,300 feet (396 m) wide and at least 230 feet (70 m) high or equivalent to 12 million cubic metre in volume.
According to reports, the super huge enclosure is big enough to fit 5 St. Peter's Basilica or 20 Boeing 747 jumbojets inside.
Other notable caves are Benarat Cavern, Deer Cave, Wind Cave, and Clearwater Cave (the 10th longest cave in the world spanning 151 km), which exposes parts of a long underground river going through the park.
However, one rock formation in Mulu is truly magical.
It has the profile side-view of Abraham Lincoln.
The profile of the 16th President of the US can be clearly seen at the entrance of the Deer cave..
How is it possible??? Only God knows...
Come, visit Mulu....
