The good news is the fees to hike in the park are gone! However a sign asks that all hikers register at the park HQ which is close to Damai Central. Because of the distance involved, many/most visitors are still parking at the location of the old Green Paradise hut and starting from there. I can suggest a way to... More

Loved our stay in the treehouses...30 feet up with a view of the ocean. Loved the beach and rentals of boards and kayaks. Had a great hike to the waterfall....quite strenuous though....be prepared.

We decided to overnight at the peak was good decision. Even we need to carry heavy backpack to hike this mountain but it so rewarding after watching the sunset and the sunrise at the peak. It took about 3 hours to climb up from Bukit Puteri route which is the shortest compare to the main entrance.

Try to get public transport but couldn't. Luckily my colleagues invited for a free ride to the entrance near Bukit Putri. Remember, the old restaurant and other entrances are virtually blocked for unknown reason. Nevertheless, we made our way up via a small route besides the blockage. There is no charges. It's 30-45 degrees all the way up until you... More

While this area is over 35kms outside of Kuching, the trip is worth it just to see the beauty of the rainforst area and the low cloud obscuring the top of the mountain. Mother Nature showing she knows how to do it right.
