What to Expect?

The Habitat Penang Hill offers the most authentic, diverse and educational rainforest experience in Malaysia. Our world class rainforest discovery centre sits on the fringes of a forest reserve protected since 1911 and consists of 1.6km nature trail that was built by the British East India Company in the early 1800s.

Apart from the myriad of flora and fauna that are discoverable along our trail, you will enjoy breath-taking views of Penang and its surrounding areas atop the 13-meter high Curtis Crest Tree Top Walk, the highest public viewing point on Penang Island, 800-meters above sea-level.

The Habitat Penang Hill also features Langur Way Canopy Walk, the longest two-span stressed ribbon bridge in the world and the only one that sits within a pristine rainforest.

It is a world-class rainforest discovery centre located at the edge of the magnificent rainforest located within easy reach of the vibrant metropolis of Penang. It is one of the main attractions which can be accessed from Ayer Itam using the historic funicular railway. With its nature trail, iconic treetop walkway, and canopy bridge that provide exceptional rainforest experiences, The Habitat aspires to awaken curiosity and nurture support for conservation among the thousands of visitors it receives each year.

- Take in the fresh air on a thrilling walk on the 230m Langur Way Canopy Walk

    Such a beautiful place in Penang Hill, this requires separate tickets after we reach the top.
    The walk through the rainforest is absolutely gorgeous. We can spot so many insects and plants and snakes and monkeys as well.
    It’s very well maintained.
    The view is stunning and if the sky is clear we can have a gorgeous view of the ocean and the whole of Penang.
    Washroom is available and clean.

    Ticket: RM60 for adults (citizens and non citizens) RM40 for child. No ticket was required for my 3yrs old.

    Location: Just beside the hindu temple, walkable distance from the train station.

    The habitat: I loved the calm and green, lush trees and plants, the Bridge was quiet long and amazing, scenic.
    The 13meter high Curtis crest tree top walk (800m above sea level) offers a fantastic and scenic views of Penang Island and mainland.

    Butterfly banks, huge swings, cafe and the calmness is a must experience.

    At the other exit you will get a free buggy lift back to the train station.

    Worth the price overall ?. Really well maintained. Very enjoyable rainforest walk.

    While in the middle, came across a nature guide who was very friendly and informative - ?would look into hiring one or waiting for a guided tour if going again.

    Only negative ❌ I have is that the "free shuttle" that returns you back to the main entrance (train upper station) is only every 15-20 minutes and doesn't fit many people (it's a large golf buggy). If you choose to not wait and walk, it's 15-20 min walk along a road busy with cars and other golf buggies (on the upside, on the way there is one of the ℹ️ best view points of George Town).

    One of the Top attraction in Penang. Taking the powerful electric train up the hill opens up a whole new world of forestry walk with many linked bridges that you might submerged yourself as one with the surrounding and habitat forgotten about time. It's definitely worth to spend half a day here. As the saying goes, If you have not been to the Habitat you have not been to Penang!
