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...

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.

Travelled from Kuching via K21 bus (4 ringgit each way), the bus drops you a couple of hundred metres from the gate, 20 ringgit entry fee (for non Malaysian adults). The park staff were very helpful with choice of trail for our time frame. We then had a very peaceful walk to the waterfall, along well marked and maintained trails.... More

Hikers would love this park ! It is not a leisure hike at all ,it can get challenging starting with the uphill walk from the car park but one can skip this by directly driving up the hill and parking next to the desired trail and in case one is too tired to walk downhill when finishing the trail ....

April 15, 2014 Tuesday, sunny. 2 of us started climbing at about 8.30am. Sky was clear & the air was still. 500m later, our Tees were already soaked with running sweat, which was a nice feeling! That day we decided to visit the waterfall, so we took the trail as indicated by the side of the road. The path was... More
