Having spoken to others that had climbed the mountain, we had been warned that it was a physical challenge. Even being fairly fit, I was still surprised at the gradient of the climb. It involves a lengthy hike up steep terrain and climbing up rope ladders. The mountain offers great views over Kuching and the Sarawak region from the top,... More

The trek from the start till the waterfall are alright... But once i've started after the waterfall. It gets harder and challenging. Its not for those who just want to relax and have a stroll. But if you are the type to challenge yourself, then this climb is for you. And great views aling the way too.

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. If you plan on doing this hike be sure to bring towels and swimming gear. The trail is very well marked... More

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
