The Starlight Camping Experience

Experience the serenity of the rainforest under the cover of the stars.


Rediscover your love for nature with a campout under the stars in a pristine and ancient rainforest.

Nestled at the fringes of the Penang Hill permanent rainforest, The Habitat Penang Hill is home to over 2500 species of flora and fauna, making our park one of the primary gateways to immerse oneself and learn about the UNESCO Penang Hill Biosphere Reserve.

Our full board 2D/1N camping experience also features activities to bring about the most joy from your time in nature.


1. Skip the queues and ride aboard the historic Penang Hill Funicular Train.

Established in 1923, the Penang Hill train service is one of the oldest railways and the only funicular railway in Malaysia. At its destination, lies the oldest British Hill Station in Asia (est. 1792). As you are whisked up through steep tracks, watch the city sprawl melt away as lush greenery and cool mountain breeze greet you.

2. Enjoy the sunset view atop the highest viewing point on Penang Island.

Atop Curtis Crest Tree Top Walk, one has the opportunity to witness one of the most breathtaking sunset views in Penang. Bask in the glow and embers of sunlight as twilight welcomes starlight.

3. At night, feel the forest comes to life.

After dinner, guests will be treated to a tour of our park at night to uncover the various nocturnal creatures that come alive under the cover of darkness.

4. Sleep under the cover of stars.

As the day draws to a close, admire the array of stars that illuminate the sky and be serenaded to sleep by the symphony of the forest.

5. Embark on a journey to cultivate sustainability with us!

Begin the next morning on a high note by reconnecting with and rediscovering your love for nature through participation in our tree-planting program. Together, let’s foster a legacy of conservation and renewal. Plus, it’s lots of fun too!
