Mount Santubong, Kuching

4.3
#3 of 6 in Nature in Kuching
Challenge yourself with an exhilarating climb to the top of Mount Santubong. Choose from several trails varying in difficulty and length, and remember that along the way you can take a dip in a waterfall plunge pool or spot some of the local wildlife. When you make it to the summit, take a moment to appreciate the captivating view. Wear comfortable clothes, footwear suitable for rugged terrain, and gloves--one section of the trek up requires you to grip rough climbing ropes. Plan your visit to Mount Santubong and a wealth of other attractions, well-known and undiscovered, using our Kuching trip builder .

Where to stay in Kuching

The most popular area to stay in Kuching remains just south of the Sarawak River, where you can find affordable hotels offering basic but comfortable rooms. South of Jalan Main Bazaar, budget backpacker accommodations in the form of hostels and guesthouses draw many visitors with limited means. Consider the districts north of the river for more exclusive and resort-style alternatives.
