The Kubah national park lies 20km west of Kuching around a sandstone plateau which includes three small mountains (Serapi, Selang and Sendok) with a max. height of 450m. The park consists mainly of rainforest and is home to a large number of palm types. 95 different species have been found here, making it one of the richest sites for palms in the world. A number of easily walkable trails criss-cross the park; the longest can be easily done in half a day. The park contains a number of waterfalls, of which one can be accessed by a trail. The Kubah national park was gazetted in 1989 and opened to the public in 1995.
