by kyoub

The small cable-pulled railway cars will take you up to Penang Hill and bring you back down.
Take a look around while you are up there.
On the top you will find a hotel & restaurant, a Hindu temple, and a mosque.
On clear days there is a great view of the island.
It is also good for birding . We saw several birds. Speaking of birds there is also a aviary on the hotel grounds.
