Mount Santubong Summit Climb

featured-santubong

Rising dramatically above the Santubong Coastline, this iconic mountain stands at a respectable 810 meters some 35 kilometres from Kuching City.  Gazetted as a National Park on the 28 February 2007, it covers an area of 1410 ha.

 

The summit trail starts at the Santubong National Park entrance and is approximately 3.5 km to the summit. This moderate to difficult hike involves scaling some steep climbs including up rope ladders, but the trail is well made, and it provides very rewarding views from the top on a clear day.

 

The trail passes through beautiful and diverse rainforest and offers a good opportunity for seeing wildlife, especially on weekdays when the trail is quieter. A pretty waterfall offers a great way to cool off at the end of the hike.
