This park is definitely less well-known than Bako National Park, but it is still definitely still worth a visit. I didn't see much wildlife other than frogs and birds, but the trails are nicely marked and well maintained, and there is a great waterfall on one of the trails. The trails are mostly easy - moderate level and are relatively... More

This is the park nearest to the city, so if you do not have much time for a real exploration into the forest, you can always go to Kubah National Park, of which, a visit to the adjacent Matang Wildlife Center is a good combination!

I liked how natural and untouched Kubah National Park felt. The trails were rugged with a lot of ups and downs. I hiked to a waterfall and across other jungle trails. There were much fewer tourists at Kubah than at Bako. Although the wildlife was less present (I only saw one monkey at Kubah, and a bunch of giant insects),... More

The indications regarding the difficulty of the trails were quiet... strange. Prepare a lot of water. The trail can be very difficult in some places for people afraid of height. To go to the waterfall, we took a long road that spoiled a little bit our adventures. To go back we decided to use another trail, but this one was... More

Kubah National Park is very nice place to see nature life. There are lot of animals and birds to see. We saw Orang Utan, Civet Cats, Sun Bears, Bear Cats, Sambar Deer, Barking Deer, Porcupines and Crocodiles as well as a large variety of birds such as Hornbills, Brahminy kites and Sea Eagles in Kubah National Park.

The park is generally hard walking so a reasonable level of fitness is required. Arrived just after dusk and dropped our kit at the accommodation, basic but clean and spacious, then went for a night walk, great! Birded most of the following day. We enjoyed the walking that much we went back on a free day.

This was a fantastic day trip, starting early we got the 8 am bus from the bus station. There are a number of hikes that you can do in the park, but by the far the highlights are the waterfall (where you can swim and sometimes spot frogs) and the circuit that takes in the viewing platform and affords views...

This is a place where you can bring your kids to . They have wild animals that are kept in the enclosure . It's like a mini zoo.. And to go from one place to another , you need to walk through the trail that was provided and it's quite safe for the kids to walk. after visiting the animals,... More

At Kubah, we took a long climb up a hill, and then we took the waterfall trail. The waterfall was really pretty, and we got to swim in the pool at the bottom of the falls. But before we took a swim, we took a 1.5 km hike with pretty views. We saw pandan leaves and a sweat bee nest.... More

Underrated location which is an outstanding rainforest reserve with an incredible variety of frogs & insects. Visit the frog pond after dark with a torch light or take a walk along the main road at dusk and listen to the incredible natural sounds.
