Penang Hill (Flagstaff Hill)

Flagstaff Hill is the best known of the group of granite peaks which are Penang Hills. At 2,411ft (735m)  it provides brilliant panoramic views of the Georgetown, the Penang Bridge and the Straits of Malacca.

It is accessible via a keen 2-hour hike up walking trails where there are thoughtfully spaced refreshment stops and viewpoints along the way. Alternatively, the 100 year old funicular railway is the more thrilling and memorably steep experience.

Practical Info

Walk trails start from the Botanical Gardens, or the funicular railway is only 10-min walk from Kek Lok Si temple in Ayer Itam.
