Overview

The Habitat Penang Hill provides the most authentic, diverse and educational Malaysian rainforest experience. Reconnect with nature in its purest form as you immerse yourself in our 130-million year old rainforest. Starting at the forest floor, our Naturalists will take you on a journey along our Nature Trail to explore the myriad of flora and fauna – plants, trees, insects, birds, reptiles, and mammals that call The Habitat home. Explore the biodiversity of the rainforest canopy on our 230m Langur Way Canopy Walk. Visit Curtis Crest Tree Top Walk at the top of Penang Hill, and embrace the 360-degree panoramic views of Penang Island from the highest viewing point of Penang. Our Shop on the Hill carries educational and ethically produced merchandise themed around all things nature and culture. Finish at our Habitat Café with refreshments ranging from artisanal coffee, gourmet cakes, and Malaysian culinary delights, to Penang-themed craft beer. Discover a different side of Penang Hill.

Great place to visit if you go up the Penang hill. There is a beautiful walk that takes you through the jungle at the top of the hill and an amazing sky walk that allows you see as far as Langkawi on a clear day!...More

A nice walk in The Habitat. Wear comfortable shoes and bring along mosquito repellent patches if required. The view at the top is amazing, can be scary for some (including me) but definitely worth it to walk one round for the amazing view~
