Easy to get to on the bus, makes for a nice day hike. No, the nature isn't as amazing as other parts of Borneo or Malaysia, but it is quite nice and very easy to do. There's a nicer waterfall about 30 minutes up the trail from the official waterfall part of the waterfall trail (confusing sentence, I know).

Kubah national park is a wildlife lovers paradise. The gorgeous rainforest scenery and the famous waterfall should make it a must do for any traveler to the area. We stayed 3 nights here and the place comes alive at night with frogs. The chalet accommodation is clean and affordable enough that just me and my partner had an 8 bed... More

The day we went to the park there were only 5 other visitors. We took a jungle trail towards a waterfall. Forgot the name. Along the way we saw all the other visitors returning, so eventually we had the whole waterfall for our self! A Private Waterfall! How cool is that! The trail from the parking towards the waterfall is... More

Probably 2-3 hours walk until you reach the waterfall. The waterfall is pretty as the air and water was really clean and fresh. Nonetheless, be careful with the snakes in there. We bumped into a snake in there.

We had such a great time at Kubah one night spotting frogs by torch light with our park ranger guide. Our four kids all got in on the hunt too and we were able to see so many species all in the space of an hour or two. And we saw a pit viper too!

Take bus K21 from the central bus station near the City Mosque. 4MR pp one way + 20MR entrance fee to the park. Taxi / shuttle buses for about 20MR pp also available from the bus station. Obtain a map from the HQ and plan a walk - need good footwear + your own food + carry plenty of water.... More

We went to Kubah during our World Environment Camp, it was for our expedition badge which required each member of the patrol to go 4000ft above sea level so we had to climb the mountain twice to compensate. First of all, the mountain can be a bit steep for the inexperienced trekker though they have well maintained roads from the... More

Walked the waterfall trail with our kids. Took about an hour. Very helpful guy at the HQ recommended an alternative route back via the main trail which was much nicer than coming back down the road. Lovely pool to swim in at the waterfall. Take plenty of water & snacks. Beautiful - a very different feel from Bako. Good footwear... More

My husband and I hired a guide for the day to do both the Kubah Park and the Matang Wildlife Sanctuary. We started at Kubah park and took the moderately easy trail to visit the waterfall. It was a great opportunity to see oversized tropical flora, fauna and trees, as well as massive insects. The walk takes about 2 hours... More

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
