4.4
#3 of 9 in Nature in Kuching
Challenge yourself with an exhilarating climb to the top of Mount Santubong. Choose from several trails varying in difficulty and length, and remember that along the way you can take a dip in a waterfall plunge pool or spot some of the local wildlife. When you make it to the summit, take a moment to appreciate the captivating view. Wear comfortable clothes, footwear suitable for rugged terrain, and gloves--one section of the trek up requires you to grip rough climbing ropes. Plan your visit to Mount Santubong and a wealth of other attractions, well-known and undiscovered, using our Kuching trip builder .

  • From Kuching in Grab we took about 35-40 minutes, and we visited this National Park for the 1.30-2 hour circular trekking if done quietly. It is a different vegetation to Kubah or Bako, maybe it is not such a nice area, but it is worth it if you are in the area. We combine it with the visit to Sarawak Village, which is very close (about 10 minutes walk).

  • We have dropped off from Damai Beach Resort at the entrance, here you have to register. The park is free of charge. Very nice but steep hike. Waterfalls and suspension bridge are beautiful! We have seen nose monkeys here and also a snake! The summit was too far and too heavy for us!

  • i have 13 times hiking Mount Santubong. Technically u should have a pair of hiking shoes, hiking beg for drinking only (mine 1.5 litre will be sufficient), energy bar (i prefer sneakers becoz its cheap and durable. it will not easily melt during warm temperature), & of course fitness will be everything. pliz prepare 'yoko-yoko' in case muscle cramp happen to your leg. Good luck earth trackers!
  • My first time hiking and manage to reach the peak... supposed to have a leisure hiking but determination push me to the peak .. good experience and feeling on cloud 9 . Not too bad for a beginner .. i must admit its challenging 😅😅😂
