Mount Santubong, Kuching

4.4
#2 of 7 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.
