KUCHING: The Sarawak Government has announced the significant discovery of a new cave near Mulu, which is at least six million years old and possibly within the top 15 largest in the world. 

The discovery was made by world famous British explorer Andy Eavis on Oct 15. It took Eavis a total of 24 expeditions to Mulu since his first attempt all the way back in 1977 to find this new cave, according to the Sarawak Forestry Corporation (SFC).
