We started the hike around 7:15am with about 20 of us including several teenagers. Half of the group gave up half way at F8 (total F15 summit). From F8 to F15 still require another 2 hours and has a lot of 90 degrees hanging steps...More

We had planned to climb Mount Santubong on our last trip to Sarawak in 2015, but for a number of reasons that didn’t eventuate so when I heard we’d be staying at the Permai Rainforest Resort again this year, climbing Santubong became a priority. After...More

Slightly apprehensive, given previous reviews, we set out just after 9am. Route was very quiet, I think only two other groups did the walk to the summit our day. First half is through typical rainforest, couple of sections look like the path has disappeared -...More

Hi my fren, I had twice experience climbing Mount Santubong. Bukit Lambir is not so difficult as compared to Mount Santubong. I lost my way at Mount Santubong during my first climb due to wrong compass reading.
