Mount Santubong Climb , Santubong Peninsula Borneo, Borneo (Sarawak)
A fantastic adventure that can be enjoyed in a day. This is not for the faint hearted - you'll trek across rope bridges and jungle to reach the stunning summit. Away from the throngs of tourists, this is a great way to experience Bornean jungle not too far from Kuching. There are beautiful waterfalls on the way back down to cool off in.
We all remarked on how well tourism blended in to the local community in a positive way. At no point did we ever feel exploited or taken advantage of. We felt privileged to visit the Penan tribe in Mulu and enjoyed the market there without any pressure to spend money. Visiting Abai village and planting the trees was also a great experience for all ages of our party. Again, a privilege.
