Hike up to the top af Mt. Santubong (840m)

!! click to enlarge !!If you plan to climb Mt. Santubong, the best time to start is in the early morning. In the afternoon the peak might become cloudy. The climb is really steep, especially when it is nearer to the top. In the beginning the path will lead you through the secondary rainforest; almost all the time you will be walking under the shade of the trees. You will need approximately 3-4 hours to reach the summit and around 2 hours to descend.

Please note: The mountain is not that easy to climb. Many people give up half way, every year there are cases where people got stranded and had to be rescued by helicopter. If you find it very challenging to climb to the summit, you may opt for easier jungle treks around the mountain first (see map).
