What you'll do

Starting from the Penang Botanical Gardens, you will first go up Mount Olivia, a pretty hill named after the wife of Sir Stamford Raffles, the founder of Singapore. Walking along the top of the ridge of the hills embracing the Gardens, you will circle the park and enjoy beautiful scenic views of Penang on the other side. End the hike by relaxing in the cool and refreshing waters of a gushing stream. The trail will take about 3 hours and is suitable for both individuals and families with children.

Peter

There are many hiking trails in Penang. I am one hiker who explores trails without GPS. This way I have explored dozens and dozens of trails including many not marked on any map (a book of my hikes will be released in 2020) and many are unknown even to seasoned hikers. I'll bring you to a wonderful and very unspoiled and unseen part of Penang's jungle. Trails can be as short as 2 hours and as long as 10-12, I have walked them all. Wild life as tortoises, giant black squirrels, wild boar, snakes, monitor lizards, langur monkeys, scorpions, huntchman spiders and many more might cross our path. You haven't seen Penang without seeing the jungle and the orchards.
