We stayed overnight at the forest hostel. There are three different rooms you can book beds in online. Room one has 3 bunk beds, room two has two bunk beds and room three has two single beds. There is a shared fully equipped kitchen and two toilets (one with shower). There is only a cold water shower but that worked... More

I highly recommend doing the treks in the end of afternoon and beginning of evening, as the sounds of the forest are just amazing at that moment. We saw a big reptile on the way back. Take a lamp with you !

I always wanted to take a shower under a waterfall and now I finally did! This park is not touristy at all. We were alone at the waterfall for about 45 min and then another small group joint us. The man at the head quarters will give you a map and he will give you some advise. The waterfall trail... More

We went as half of a full day combined with Matang Wildlife Centre. Essentially a stiff walk on a trail in our case to the waterfall. First 30 mins on a concrete road then an hour on the trail. Went on Malaysia Day so was busy. But very interesting to hear about plants etc from guide. And waterfall worth the... More

We stayed here for two nights in the hostel. We had the hostel to ourselves as stayed during the week. Local people tend to come here to relax at the weekends. The hostel rooms are 4 small rooms with big dining and lounge area. No wifi or phone signal though so bring games or book to read in evening. Totally... More

Great rainforest trekking to a very nice waterfall. Perfect half day somewhat challenging walk with our 10 year-olds🙂 Wonderful cool shower in the clear, clean waterfall and very lush and thick rain forest to keep you amazed while swetting a lot... Carry lot's of drinking water!

Went by taxi from Kuching (60 Ringgit), 40 min drive. Entrance fee 20 Ringgit p.p. clear directions given by park ranger. He advised us to combine a few trails with a total duration of 5 hours. Trails are very clearly marked, some bridges however need maintenance. The park lies in the mountains so expect a lot of ascending/descending. Also be... More

The paved road leads from the park entrance, up the hill to the cell phone tower at the top. Worth it for the stunning view and you can walk in flip flops. Feeling adventurous , looking for some off road wanders, then yes Kubah has the trails. Long and short, the most popular is to the waterfall. There are wooden... More

This cute national park is within the easy reach from Kuching. The rainforest is hot and steamy here and the park has several easy trails. I did the 7km loop: Waterfall Trail to Selang Trail via Main/Rayu Trails. Wish I had a scooter so I can check out the views from the highest point. The public transport schedule didn't permit...
