Visited the Kubah National Park in the hope of a manageable trek with some nice views but ended up being a nightmare. As im fully aware Borneo is full of challenging treks not suitable for elderly, I made sure to ask at the ticket office "is it managable for me, will there be ropes or rails to assist?" "Yes, simple... More

We did the "walk" to the waterfall, which started as an uphill climb before getting to the forest path. Making it to the waterfall was worth the walk and it was a refreshing swim, but another uphill walk back means you'll be hot & sweaty again before you get back to your vehicle!

i stayed here for a week, preparing myself for an upcoming expedition. the lodges were self contained and comfortable- nestled right into the national park. the trails were magnificent and the waterfall trail is a must to

This trekking was kind of a struggle (the trekking to the reach a waterfall), maybe also because of the haze that was kind of intense during that period, but still.. there is a lot of ups and downs. After a while you reach the waterfall which is really lovely and it's really nice to be able to get into the... More

Tried the waterfall walk. Steep, slippery, hard going in the humidity, and the waterfall was not up to much when we got there. luckily no leeches that day, but very little wild-life either

This was an excellent day trip from Kuching - we ended up getting a taxi there and arranging a pick up time (70 ringgit each way for 4 of us) as the buses are only every 3 hours. A very friendly ranger (Dominic) at the park gave us plenty of us when we got there and we ended up doing... More

Don't let the hot Sarawak weather keep you away. It is much cooler in the forest than in the city, so you can enjoy the hike to see the different types of rainforest growth and the beautiful waterfall. The rangers at the gate were friendly and gave good recommendations of what to expect. They even showed us pictures of some... More

We decided to hike from Kubah NP HQ to Metang Wildlife Centre and it is quite easy (but not worth doing so, as described below). We took the bus from Kuching as it leaves conveniently from bus station near Mosque at 8:00 (be there earlier, however) and it costs 4 RG. After 45 minutes we arrived to NP, walked 400... More

I hate mosquitoes and flies as i'm a true blue city girl. Borrowed proper hiking boots for this from my friend and i'm really glad i did. Many parts of the trek is rather mucky and very slippery. There is a steep trek of about 1000ft upwards before you start the 1.5km trek into the rainforest to get to the... More
