Located just a mere 20km away from Kuching, Kubah National Park is paradise for a nature lover as it’s easily accessible and friendly to hikers. While most of the wildlife in Kubah tend to reside deeper inside the park, this mixed dipterocarp forest offers unbeatable scenery, waterfalls and streams through six of the it’s most popular treks.

There is also a direct path to the summit of Mount Serapi which takes about 5-6 hours return trip for those who would like to venture to almost 1000ft above sea level! The highlight is the waterfall trail which takes only 90 minutes to reach a beautiful waterfall feature where you can swim in the cold water and enjoy yourself!

One day is not enough to fully explore Kubah National Park’s offerings. The park has a lodging facility where you can stay for cheap prices in dorms. If you are going there in groups, you can enquire to organise a guided tour as well.
