Its the perfect opportunity to visit ‘the Habitat’ when you next travel to Penang.
The Habitat on Penang Hill is an eco-friendly reserve on the Malaysian Island of Penang and the perfect place to spend the day when visiting. Just 6 kilometres from the city of George Town, this World Heritage listed eco-tourism park showcases its spectacular 130-Million-year-old rainforest.
The 10 acre park showcases the rich biodiversity of this ancient rainforest and uses many green initiatives to maximise energy and efficiency, while minimising its carbon footprint.
Enjoy the clean and crisp air as you walk the 1.6 kilometre Nature Trail and along the Langur Way Canopy Walk, the forest pathways and climb to the top of the Iconic Curtis Crest Tree Top Walk.
What to see in the rainforest
Trained Naturalists take you on an informative journey through the species of plants, trees, insects,bids, reptiles and mammals that live within this extraordinary rainforest.
The 230 metre long Langur Way Canopy Walk is the longest two-span stressed ribbon bridge in existence and the Curtis Crest Tree Top Walk at the top of Penang Hill is 800 metres above sea-level and provides visitors with 360 degree panoramic views of Penang Island.
