Took me about 2 hours to get to the summit but I'm sure seasoned hikers would take probably around 1 hour 45 minutes or maybe less. There are apparently 4 trails to choose from so you might wanna plan your time wisely if you'd like to get the full experience. I barely saw any wildlife other than a few types of lizards and snakes but maybe I wasn't looking in the right place. Might come back in the future to try the other trails. "Life is like a mountain. Hard to climb, but once you get to the top, the view is beautiful."

We headed out to Kubah NP to hike Gunung (Mt) Serapi. We had to hire a taxi as grab drivers don’t like going there or waiting for you to finish.
The entry fee was RM$20 which is fairly reparable for a paved 10km trip.
The jungle was beautiful, and it wasn’t actually that hot as you are in the shade for almost all of the hike.
It didn’t rain when we were out there, but I can imagine the concrete becomes slippery when wet.
We saw many many butterflies, and the jungle felt alive and fresh.
I highly recommend this hike.
It took us 1hr & 20mins to reach the top and 50mins to come back down.
The tax driver charged us RM$170 - but securing a trip home was important, so we just paid the $$!

I went on a night time frog spotting tour with Lucien (Sarawak private Tours and cooking class at Indah House). Lucien was extremely knowledgeable, and amazing at spotting frogs. We saw 9 different kinds. Walking in the forest after dark was a wonderful experience. I would highly recommend doing it.

I love hiking, i love outdoor and i love challenges. So my friend @BenBassist invited me to join him one day to a morning hike. Its just 15minutes away from Kuching town and here we stood at the bottom of a hill of Serapi Mountain, the entrance of Kubah National Park.
He told a friend of mine and me to bet up early so we can get a slot in to hike. I was surprise at first of "what you mean get a slot?" as online says the park opens till 1pm. Then to my surprise, there we stood 700am at the parking lot waiting for the ticketing counter to open at 730am and there was already a short queue. We were happy that the air is so fresh, the weather was perfect on my 1st time and the hike was definately challenging for a paved road! So off we started at 730am and there was a longer queue behind us lining up to the parking, and only after the 1st hike only i knew that there is a limit of pax per day! (So do not be late guys coz my 2nd failed trip i arrived 850am and tickets were sold out). So on my 3rd trip, it was raining and i decided to go and give it a try. Rain or no rain, the amount of sweat pouring out of my head and pants definately not much a difference as compared to gettting drenched by the rain. Besides, I was in a RAIN-forest, so let there be RAIN! mostly the rain gets bounced of the tree leaves so i don't feed the rain directly on my head. Some people brought umbrellas and some people with raincoat, but i dont usually hike with those.

So here we go, up the 2000 feet hike, tiring but awesome to be in nature. Every now and then i will sstop to see the waterfalls at the side of the path, when it rains, there is more waterfalls by the pavements to see but of course, PLEASE DO NOT GO NEAR!

Anyways, cut it short, in 1 month i went back to hike the same place 3 times. I enjoyed it and am hoping to try a new course soon when the other tracks are open as the waterfall track is now close!

📍Kubah Waterfall, Kuching

When we had our pre-wedding photoshoot 3 years ago, we knew it had to be different..
We hiked in Kubah National Park all the way in to the waterfall, about an hour of journeying, together with 2 family friends who are amazing photographers. We brought formal attire, and changed there and there, just to immerse ourselves in the wonders of Borneo's Rainforests.

🌸The waterfall was magical.. It's not the gushing type with thundering waters, but instead, a gentle cascading fall with beautiful serenity pools, perfect for cool-water dipping. What makes this waterfall ethereal is how lush vines and ferns of different greens line the side of the cascades, flourishing and thriving with the constant gentle patters of water. The photography there was well worth all the effort.

🚗How to get there?
Drive by car (or rent) to Kubah National Park, using Waze or Google Maps. From Kuching, the journey will take about an hour or so. Upon arrival, Malaysians only have to pay RM 10 per entry, Foreigners at Rm 20. You will receive a map with 2 main destinations - the top of the mountain, and Kubah waterfall.

🌄You can give the top of the mountain journey a miss. From what I hear, there isn't even a view to enjoy, and it's just a tar road journey all the way.
Kubah Waterfall is to me the main attraction here.

⏲Come by morning; by afternoon, you might be denied entry because the rangers would have no one inside the rainforests after 6pm.

*Special thanks to Gabriel Diong and Julieann for the amazing photoshoot!

One of the reserved dipterocarpaceae forest park, taking 35 minutes distance from Kuching city centre.
This is an landmark and visitors worth spending time a day to come closely with wildlife which over 93 species as recorded by authorities.
Stop deforestation and avoid soil erosion was the first step to be caring about.

The nationalpark offers nice trails, which are very good signaled and clean. For the entrance you pay 20rm and you have to sign in and out at the headquarter. The staff at the headquarter is very friendly and helpful, they explain you the trails. They show you a good map (with the trails and emergency callnumbers) of which you can take a picture

We went with Lars, and with Lee, who was a local (native) guide. Nighttime in a pouring rain - which brings out the frogs. And snakes. But it was a warm evening and so no suffering. Pretty much stayed until closing time (10 pm).
