About Penang Hill in Penang Island

Snuggled about 6 km away from GeorgeTown, the lush and forested area of Penang Hill is the most significant hill resort in Peninsular Malaysia. Perched atop the capital of Penang at a height of about 821 meter, it comprises Tiger Hill, Western Hill, Government Hill, Flagstaff Hill, and Bukit Laksamana, it is also called as Bukit Bendera by islanders. Being the last patch of tropical forest in the region of Penang, its flora and fauna are being under utmost protection since 1960. Head towards this lush hilltop, which is one of the most sought-after attractions in the region, and delve into its fresh environs for a rejuvenating experience.

History of Penang Hill

Dating back to the era post British settlement, Penang Hill, Malaysia was discovered when the area was commissioned to be cleared by Francis Light in order to let the strawberries grow. Albeit, the area couldn’t develop fully, it became a popular refuge amongst emigrants. As you climb up the Penang Hill station, you may also grab a chance to explore its oldest bungalow, called Bel Retiro, which is now the holiday stay of Penang’s Governor.

Attractions of Penang Hill

Get on a Penang Hill tour on a clear day, and you may just grab an enticing opportunity to cherish the mesmerizing view of the mountains of Langkawi. While, a night excursion is even more rewarding offering you a striking view of illuminated GeorgeTown. The major factors that draw thousands of visitors to this attraction every year is its cool and unpolluted environs. And, if you are an adventure enthusiast, then a trek through its lush nature trails decked with about 30 meter high trees can be the best part of this excursion.

What’s more? As the region is blessed with more than 100 species of birds, including an array of garden species and some exotic forest inhabitants, this place is one of the best spots to enjoy bird-watching.

So, if you are also a wildlife and adventure enthusiast, then get your tickets to Penang Hill booked in advance, and hop on an excursion amidst the lush environs to have an experience that can be cherished for life.

    Arpan's 4 days trip to Penang

    The trip was managed well by Shalu & Bhavay. We stayed in 2 hotels - Adya and Frangipani. Adya hotel staff was too rigid with their rules and the room was also not good which we did not like. Frangipani was very good in that regard, the rooms were very clean and the staff was really nice. The cab transfers and the tours booked were excellent and we had absolutely no problems in that regard.
