We climbed mt santubong with 4 young woman and it took us more than three hours to reach the top. It was heavy climbing with ropes and monkey ladders. The view in the top was absolutely amazing and worth it. We told the taxi driver in the morning to drop us at checkpoint two and he waited there for us.... More

Due to time constraints we had only planned to hike about 1.5hrs to the first viewing point, however after stumbling across a stunning waterfall and rock pool after about 1 hour of climbing we stopped there to cool off.

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.
