My trip to Penang Hill on 13 March 2007 on School Holiday. So many people there during holiday but we enjoyed the trip. We bought train ticket at 4.00 pm for trip at 5.30pm. Even we and have to wait 1 and half hour, but we enjoyed the scenery and the freshness up there.
Those who want to get there, you better spend until night because the night view of Penang town are very beautiful. Don't worry last train trip going down is at 11.30pm. Hope you all enjoyed my photos and videos here.
The funicular train up to Penang Hill
Malaysia's first hill station, Penang Hill is 830 meters (2730ft) above sea level, visitors can ascend to the top by either hiking up or by the funicular railway which has been operational since 1922. Apart from the cool, refreshing climate and the fantastic view at the summit, visitors can also view the picturesque bungalows, a beautiful flower garden and a bird park.
There are bungalows for rent and a hotel for those who want to stay for more than a day. Visitors can also indulge in refreshments and snacks at a convenient tea kiosk located on top of the hill.
There is a good walking track up the hill. It takes 4 hours to reach the top and is recommended only for the more energetic. The jungle trail begins at the 'moongate' at Jalan Air Terjun, approximately 300m from the Botanical Gardens entrance.
The most popular way up the hill is via a funicular train, which takes about half an hour. Walking up the hill takes about four hours.
The funicular rail service begins at 6.30am and ends at 9.30pm
Fare: RM4.00 adults & RM2.00 children.
