Kubah Nationalpark  - a mountain area west of Kuching
          Here you can see real lowland rain forrest.

Kubah Nationalpark is a hidden treasure next to Kuching. Here are plenty of walking trails but none of them is easy. They all take time and exercise. In Kubah Nationalpark you can see squirrels, mouse deer, porcupines, civet cats and many other mammals. Kubah is famous for its diversity of reptiles like monitor lizards, snakes, frogs, dragon lizards, geckos, skinks and tortoises. 55 species of frogs has been reported in 2 locations only. Besides that there are thousands of species of colorful large insects like beautiful butterflies, stick insects and others. You may even encounter Orang Utans which have been released in the park years ago. There are also slow loris, gibbons, wild boars and moon rats to see.

If you have no fear of the darkness just do a nightwalk on the road to the summit or the trail down to the waterfall. If there is no full moon you will be suprised at how many animals you can observe after 10 pm. Better bring another spare torchlight for safety reasons and enough batteries. Around sunset you can listen to the frogs and cicadas at the frogpond.

There are clean facilities (dorm, rooms and chalets) to stay for low rates directly in the park. There are good cooking facilities. Better bring long trousers and tight long socks against the numerous leeches. Leeches are harmless and do not transmit any diseases. Just don´t worry too much about these silly creatures and pluck them off when you spot them.

If you choose to walk the long traik to the Matang Wildlife Center, you can use the bus shuttle from Matang back to Kubah Nationalpark head quarter until 5:30+ pm for about 25 RM per load.
