Curtis Crest Walkway
Sited on an old experimental garden set up by renowned botanist Charles Curtis back in the 18th century. Many plant species on Penang Hill are named after Charles Curtis, hence in respect of the historical significance, the attraction was named Curtis Crest. Native conifers, Dacrydium Elatum planted during the early days of Charles Curtis, formed a natural oval shape that determined the walkway’s design. A metal mesh walkway running through the top canopy of the conifers was designed to eventually allow the conifers to envelop the walkway, giving us an intimate experience whilst allowing unobstructed views of the entire island at approximately 800 meters above sea level.
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.
