Mount Santubong is situated on the Damai peninsular about 35 km north of Kuching and take only about 45 minutes to reach from the city centre. Many travelers staying at the nearby hotels and beach resort are not aware of this gem of a mountain at their virtual doorstep. Although at only 810 meters high, Mount Santubong is a "single rise" mountain with a short range out of a relatively flat terrain by the sea, hence its impressive facade as you drive towards it from the city. In fact, it looks rather intimidating in part due to its extreme steep slope especially near its summit.
So, advice is to start really early, say about 8am at starting point and making it a total of 6 hours. And if it rains, as it often does in the tropics, thunderstorms, the jungle can be dark and miserable even at 4pm, if you are ''lost'' by 5pm, it can be a scary experience; there had been cases of this happening. It is worth if you reach on top of Mount Santubong with wonderful feeling of which you could see the whole of Kuching City including river surrounding you. Not all Kuching People have been on top of Mount Santubong. Even among the foreigners also who planning to climb mount Kinabalu in Sabah also choose to Climb Mount Santubong for their fitness and satisfaction.
