Top 3 waterfall in Kuching to go with family and friends easily
  1. Santubong Waterfall
  2. Kubah National Park Waterfall
  3. Gunung Gading National Park Waterfall
As an explorer in Kuchicng, one of the question that I’m frequently being asked is “Which waterfall can I go over the weekend with my friends/family”
What people want are:
  • Easily access within 1 hour
  • Near to the place they park
  • Have public toilet and bathroom
  • Can barbeque
Then I start to put on my thinking cap, and listed a few. Among that I chose these three as the top, and I hope that this can serve as a guideline for you when you visit Kuching, and would like to visit the waterfall.

The Santubong Waterfall

How to go?
Santubong is located on the North of the Kuching city, with just 35KM away from town. A 45 minutes car ride to reach the Santubong Mountain.

The entrance is before the Santubong resort, and on the right there will be a power station, the entrance is just next to the power station.

Do a registration at the Park HQ counter for safely purpose, and you may proceed to start hike to the waterfall. As shown in my picture, the waterfall is located next to the S shape suspension bridge, and from the park HQ to the waterfall only takes about 15 minutes.

Do enjoy the cozy water when your there, very refreshing.

Free of charge, only require you to register your time in, and time out.

What do they have there?
At the waterfall, there are no toilet, no bathroom.

The Kubah National Park Waterfall

How to go?
Situated about 22KM from Kuching, and about half an hours plus of car ride to the park.
Drive all the way to the Matang, there are signboard along the way.

And after the Matang, you will see places like the Red Bridge, the Family Park I, and follow by Family Park II. Right after family park 2, immediately there is an entrance on the left. Drive all the way up, and you can see the Park HQ for the Kubah National Park.

The Gunung Gading National Park Waterfall

After you see the entrance, just drive in. And after the narrow road, you will reach the entrance.
