What to Expect

Starting from the Penang Botanical Gardens, you will first go up Mount Olivia, a pretty hill named after the wife of Sir Stamford Raffles, the founder of Singapore. Walking along the top of the ridge of the hills embracing the Gardens, you will circle the park and enjoy beautiful scenic views of Penang on the other side. End the hike by relaxing in the cool and refreshing waters of a gushing stream. The trail will take about 3 hours and is suitable for both individuals and families with children.
