The Habitat Virgin Jungle
The Penang Hill virgin jungle reserve area, on the fringe of which The Habitat sits, is believed to be part of Malaysia’s treasure trove of prehistoric rainforests dating back 130-million years old. Besides its rich biodiversity, it plays an important role as a primary water catchment area for Penang island. Our rainforests also provide essential ecosystem services for the sustenance of life including climate regulation, water & nutrient recycling, air purification, carbon storage, and soil stability.
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.
