Climbing Mount Santubong is an incredible walk - starting out on the flat and progressing towards the summit with ever steeper paths and a number of vertical rope ladders. It is for the fit and adventurous. However there is much to see on the lower and flatter paths for those unprepared to take on the extreme adventure

The mountain with height over 2,600 feet ,from city centre nearly a hour and 10 minutes travelling distance. Here's one of the gazetted National Park as well. Furthermore,there's an romantic legend about Princess Santubong related to the point.

The jungle loop trail is the easier of the two trails. The trek took us only about one and half hours to complete. It’s a short trail and well marked but there are some confusing sections. It would be a good idea to get a contact number before staring out from the park office just in case. I had read that there are multiple exits but these exits were not marked well. Physical fitness is required as this is not a flat and easy esp for people who don’t trek frequently. There were some climbs and descents where we had to hold on to ropes or tree roots. There is plenty of shade but the path would definitely be very slippery and dangerous during the rainy season. Would recommend good waterproof shoes as the trail has a lot of rocks and tree roots and some small streams and brooks to cross and also carry plenty of water. The waterfall is right below the suspension bridge and would require climbing down some slippery rocks To get there: We had to drive around a bit after Culvert to find the park entrance. Look out for cars parked near “Santubong puteri trail start” ( google maps)

Trail to summit from camp was longer than closed trail which starts outside of the park. I reached summit in 2hours 45mins and got back in 2 hours. There were several hard climbs and upper you get there were many ropes missing. Rope ladders have been replaced with aluminium ones. Those parts are easy. Coming down on trails that have all roots revealed is the hardest in my oppinion. That's what legs say. Definitely worth of climbing but not easy.

There were 2 trails available, red, leading to the summit and blue, a loop leading back to the registration hut. At the time we were there, the red trail was closed due to the wet weather. The blue trail was very interesting as we overcame different obstacles. We came upon a waterfall, suspension bridge, crossed rivers, jumped onto a vine and swung around like Tarzan, climbed down a steep slope, saw an insect giving birth, saw Venus fly traps, etc. In other words, it was heaps of fun.
