Trekking on Borneo can be combined with a summit victory! Mount Santubong (about 800m) offers a mountaineering challenge. In good weather Mount Santubong is visible from Kuching with the naked eye and the journey is only about 45 minutes by car. From the beach resorts in Damai you can walk to the entrance.
There are several entrances where all are just above sea level. The climb is steep and tropical rainforest covers the mountain from foot to peak. Particularly steep passages are easy to do with rope ladders and over all streams lead bridges. There are shelters in case there is a storm in the tropical rainforest. Regardless of the season, the biggest challenge lies in enduring the tropical climate. Heat and high humidity make it difficult to trek. In any case, you should take enough drinking water, even if you do not necessarily want to reach the summit. The ascent takes 2 to 2.5 hours at a fast pace. Those who are not sure of their mountaineering performance in this climate,
