While, on the way we come across many incredible destinations renowned as Borneo Peat swamps (a forest filled with water soil that keeps the woods of trees moisturized and the tree leaves remain alive for a long time), the scenery of Alluvial plains (a level tract of land incessantly filled with alluvial material through flowing waters) are also enormously seen including protruded limestone materials as well. For instance, we implicitly get the chance to explore the following on the way to Deer Cave, which is majorly numbered as:
