DAY 01-KUCHING / KUBAH NATIONAL PARK
Transfer from your hotel to Kubah National Park which takes about 45 minutes. The park is located about 20 kilometres from Kuching and one of Sarawak’s most accessible national parks. It was gazetted in 1989 and only opened to the public in 1995. The Park is dominated by a sandstone plateau which includes three mountains Mount Serapi, Mount Selang and Mount Sendok. At the height of between 150-450 metres, this plateau is punctuated with bands of hardened limestone which have created a number of beautiful waterfalls.Nepenthes ampullaria – the carnivorous pitcher plants borne at the tips of the leaves on tendrils, are shaped like tubes, tubs, or drums, and capture various small invertebrates.
The Park consists largely of undisturbed natural forest with five main vegetation types:- alluvial forest, lowland mixed dipterocarp forest, kerangas (heath) forest, submontane forest and secondary forest. Its rich forest, proximity to the mangrove forests and its terrain all ensure that Kubah is home to a variety of wildlife, including bearded pigs, black hornbills, mousedeer, squirrels and numerous species of amphibians and reptiles. It is also rich in palms and orchids. These include several species of Licuala, Rattans, Pantu, Pinanga, Appendicula, Dipodium and Eria. Lunch and dinner at the Park Canteen. Accommodation is at the Park Guesthouse, with basic amenities and facilities (no hot water shower). Meals: Lunch and dinner only.
