The Top 3 Mega Waterfalls in Sarawak 砂拉越前三名超级瀑布

As an explore I visited quite a number of places throughout Sarawak, I look for mountain to climb, jungle for trekking, hunt for waterfall, and seen some of the most breathtaking scene that I will remember for the rest of my life.

With the deforestation issue getting serious as days go by, I notice not much action are being taken, not the agency who said that they will do so. Therefore before its gone, I hope to record it down, and share it with the world, in hope that one day, there are certain agency bodies will come and take serious action about it.

In this post I'm going to list down the top 3 waterfalls that I visited during years of my exploration journey.

喜欢探险的我,这几年来我都很幸运的有机会探索到多数砂拉越内陆。我的家园有许多漂亮的地方,但是伐木问题日益蔓延,又很少机构采取行动,如果森林会完蛋,在它被摧毁前,要赶快记录下来,希望更多人看见,希望有机构能够采取行动。

我爬了很多山,丛林徒步,瀑布探索,这里我整理了在我看过最漂亮的前三大超级瀑布。

A 6 Hours One Way Mount Santubong Summit 1 OFF TRAIL Trekking

Normally when hike Mount Santubong, we will hike from either the park HQ entrance, or from Bukit Puteri, I joined a few of my hiking friends that day to hike mount Santubong, and this is from the South side, this will be an off trail hike.
The entrance its belongs to a Malay family, and they are kind enough to let us park our vehicle in front of their compound.
The trail start off with a flat ground, and many pitcher plant here and there. Most of them are no more bigger than the palm of my hand.



I think because there are less people here, so there are many mosquito. 

A dry river bed, we start to descent. 


We saw the national park boundary signboard, we are in Santubong National Park boundary now.


The landscape are getting steeper

Some of the rock face are 90 degree, no way to climb over it. But have to go around it.


Reached a view point, in front of us its the summit 1 of mount Santubong

Any idea this is from what animal?



One part where we are barely have anything to step on, its just on the edge of the cliff. 
This is the point where summit 1 meet with summit 2, the big gully between the two peaks.

Last push to reach the summit

And here I am, the usual summit 1 view point of Mount Santubong
We descent by using the official route fix by the national park ranger

Pantai Putery beach.
