Get around[edit]

Waterfall in Kubah National Park


Home to many refreshing waterfalls and rock streams.

  • One of the must-dos is a trip to the Frog Pond at night. Make sure you go there at night or evening as frogs are nocturnal and during the day you might get disappointed by the lack of frogs.


There are six jungle trails plus one that leads to the summit of Mount Serapi.

  • Trek to Mount Serapi - exhausting uphill trek on a concrete road (a six hour return trip). You can see lots of lush tropical plants along the way plus there is a nice view at the top.
  • Raya trail leads to Matang Wildlife Centre.
  • Waterfall trail 1hr easy trekking to a really nice waterfall. And you can swim there.
  • Selang trail It takes 40 min to reach the view point (nice view) and then the same amount of time back as it's a circle trail.

Get out[edit]

Matang Wildlife Centre, Tel: +60-82-248 088. It is part of Kubah National Park and is popular with families who picnic by the refreshing rock pools and waterfalls. There are full facilities including toilets and BBQs. There are four relatively easy jungle trails, but the main attraction used to be the Orang Utan Training Centre - where orphaned and rescued Orang Utans are rehabilitated and taught how to survive in the wild. But after a tourist got bitten by one of these apes they were put into enclosures and you can't see them into a wild anymore. The centre also houses other animals like Crocodiles and Hornbills in large enclosures.
