Curtis Crest Tree Top Walk
The Curtis Crest Tree Top Walk is a 13 meters highest public viewing platform located on the plateau just above the Mid-Point Rest Area and Museum. In the 1890s this plateau was used as one of the first English tennis courts in Malaya by people holidaying on the hill. It was also used as a military parade ground by the East India Company in the early days of the settlement, and the troops stationed here kept watch for approaching enemy ships. On sighting one they would signal Fort Cornwallis in George Town far below so that they could warn the people and prepare for battle. Like walking on a carpet of evergreen pine needles through pristine montane forest, the Curtis Crest experience is akin to climbing to the very top of a tree to gain that amazing view.
