It is quite the uphill hike from the carpark to the head of the trail - once to the trail it was more hills...up and down. However, once we got to the waterfall, it wsa beautiful. Not the tallest waterfall, but it was surrounded by green and lush jungle. We were the only ones there so we were able to... More

My partner and I did the trek from Kubah to Matang and for five hours the only trace of humans was a wrapper here or there. The waterfall hike was a glorious pit stop to cool off in the heat. There were butterflies and dragonflies everywhere in every color. The frog pond was quiet in the late morning but we... More

We were here 2011 and went again 2014 - took a 4RM bus from market/bus station there 8am and paid 20RM each to enter - we walked those lovely steep and challenging trails for 5hrs after we were given a map by Customer Service at Kuhah NP. It really is a MUST - the sights (bugs, trees, insects) ans screeching... More

To hike this 6 kilometers hills you need to be prepared physically and mentally. Ive been here with my classmate, to take endurance test for our Brass Band Club. We start hike at 9 am, at first we hike with excitement and spirit, but we do not realize there are long sloppy hills to be hike. Although there are cemented... More

We walked from the entrance to the park along the Rayu trail to the Matang wildlife reserve. The walk took 2.5 hours (although we had been told that it might take 3.5 hours. We did not see any wildlife but the forest scenery was interesting in itself. The only problem was that it was a damp day and at one... More

I am not really an active person. However I manage to hike Mount Kubah up until the waterfall. Just make sure to bring chocolate, or anything sweet. And water. You really need some glucose to replace the one you lose while you are hiking. I also bring my paper fan, it is helpful because you can sweat a lot, and... More

2 adults, 2 children (8 and 11) plus our taxi driver embarked on the waterfall trail which took us 1.5hrs to get there The board walks were poorly maintained with some missing steps and broken planks. Due to rainy season, trail was slippery and rocks and boards are grown with algea which make the trail a bit challenging for our... More

We went to the park on a Tuesday at 9.30am and were the only ones there (from start to end). The park ranger, Dominic, told us that people rarely go on weekdays and that weekends are more crowded. The waterfall trail was tiring but fun, although the waterfall is nothing spectacular. In fact, the end of the trail is not... More

Finding Kubah National Park coming from Kuching was not all that easy. We finally got the right turn at the red bridge. The new road would have been an alternative, but we found it blocked. After reaching the park entrance, a very steep ascent on a paved road was not really what we had expected from a leisurely hike. The... More
