Penang Sports & Outdoors: 29 reviews and 54 photos


All over Penang island, there are many jungle trails to hike.

The easiest is at the top of Penang Hill, along the tarred road from the Penang Hill Upper Train station towards Methodist Center. And if you walk beyond there, you will see more wild life like giant squirrels, blue Asian fairy bird and the flying lizard which glides from tree to tree.

You can also see excellent views of Georgetown, Air Itam and Penang Bridge.

Can be hot. So bring a cap and an umbrella if it looks like it going to rain. Fairly flat terrain about 30-50 minutes round trip.

Theme: Hiking
