TRAIL & GARDENS
A few minutes’ away from the Top Station of Penang Hill Funicular Railway marks the starting point of the 1.6km long The Habitat nature trail. A trail that meanders below three of the hill’s oldest historic bungalows, and through the entire stretch of The Habitat themed park. Framed lookouts have been carefully created to bring back “The Forgotten Views” of the rolling hills and The Andaman Sea beyond. These framed views conjure the romance and magnificent spectacle of Penang Hill.
This enchanting realm allows visitors to experience Penang Hill’s rainforest at its very best. Several themed gardens charmingly line the way and include the Fern Garden, Butterfly Bank, Fragrant Garden and Ginger and Palm Grove. Planted with a view to delight your senses, visitors are invited to touch, smell, see and hear the wonders of jungle completely undisturbed.
Educational signs are positioned unobtrusively along the way in such a way to educate you on the flora, fauna, and history of the pathway, but not in such a way as to spoil your experience.
Complimentary nature guided tours are provided to every visitor of The Habitat Penang Hill. The tours are conducted by award-winning naturalists and visitors will be in awe of a large amount of knowledge they can acquire at The Habitat.
