Challenge yourself with an exhilarating climb to the top of Mount Santubong.

When you make it to the summit, take a moment to appreciate the captivating view.

  • i have 13 times hiking Mount Santubong. Technically u should have a pair of hiking shoes, hiking beg for drinking only (mine 1.5 litre will be sufficient), energy bar (i prefer sneakers becoz its cheap and durable. it will not easily melt during warm temperature), & of course fitness will be everything. pliz prepare 'yoko-yoko' in case muscle cramp happen to your leg. Good luck earth trackers!
  • My first time hiking and manage to reach the peak... supposed to have a leisure hiking but determination push me to the peak .. good experience and feeling on cloud 9 . Not too bad for a beginner .. i must admit its challenging 😅😅😂
