  • Mount Santubong National Park is located on a peninsula near the village of Santubong and Damai in town 30 km from Kuching. The trail leads to the top, the length is about 3 km away and a lifting height of 850 metres. The first 2 with superfluous kolometra slope of the trail is not very big, clean, dry and moving around is not difficult. On the road again meet several lounge areas and lookouts. However, the last 700 meters fall on 300 metres of ascent and rife with vertical walls to 10-20 metres high, in the majority of cases they are equipped with a knotted rope ladders or so intensely intertwined roots of trees that require no special training. Slowly you can climb to the top for 3:00 and go for 2. Stunning views from the top of the Kuching Sarawak and River Delta. Bring not less than 1 liter of water, cotton gloves and sturdy shoes. On the way you can vtretit' all living creatures of the type of monkeys, lemurs and volatile etc. Start the ascent should be 7-8 hours in the morning, while not so hot, and so is guaranteed to go down before dark.
