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 embarked on the blue trail on our final morning in Santubong having read up on the intensity of the red trail. It took around 2 hours and we really enjoyed the challenge of the climbs and negotiating the many streams you must cross. Don't...More

Very beautiful. At the start you can choose between the red and blue trail. We chose the red one which goes all the way to the top. The blue trail will lead you to one of the waterfalls. If you are planning on doing the...More

We walked from the start to the second waterfall (part of the red route) and back on a part of the blue route (the first waterfall where you can cool down). This took about 3,5 hours. It was a great walk!! But I thought it...More

We did this climb with our children (8, 10 and 12). The children are used to walk and to climb. The treck is not adviced for beginners, as its quite long (day trip) and it can be exposed. The second part of the climb is...More

We enjoyed the waterfall. The walk up to the waterfall was gorgeous and fun clambering about. The kids (6,3 and 10 month) enjoyed a lot. It was shady and warm and we enjoyed the sounds of the jungle and saw enormous ants, lizards, terrapin and...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.
