The Habitat Nature Trail

The original nature trail built by the British to maintain the drain that runs the entire length of the trail. The drain was built to control water flowing down from the ridge above and prevent soil erosion. A few minutes away from the top station of Penang Hill funicular railway marks the starting point of the 1.6km long 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.

The Habitat on Penang Hill is a world-class eco-tourism facility located on the fringes of a 130-million-year-old virgin rainforest on Penang Hill, Penang, Malaysia. 820 meters above sea-level, it is easily accessible via a 7-minute ride on the Penang Hill funicular train from Air Itam or the Botanical Gardens. With world-class facilities, dramatic natural beauty, and a commitment to conservation and environmental awareness, The Habitat Penang Hill is the place to visit for the most complete, exciting and educational Malaysian rain forest experience.
