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.
