Kubah National Park is located about 20 kms west from Kuching city, also one of most accessible national parks in Sarawak. It was gazetted in 1989 and opened to the public in 1995. It is dominated by a sandstone plateau and covers an area of 2,230 hectares. At an altitude of between 150-450 metres, this plateau is punctuated with bands of hardened limestone which have formed several beautiful waterfalls.
There are four trails offered in the park and one of them leads to the waterfall. The Kubah Waterfall can be reached in approximate 1.5 hours by using the Waterfall Trail.
