Penang Hill Birding ~ Penang Malaysia

Penang as a popular tourist destination, is not only about local food and fine cuisines but it is also home to fascinating world that is relatively unknown. The alluring and amazing bird life around the state of Penang.

07.00am: Take the train or transfer (from Botanical garden) up the hill. Upon reaching the top, we begin our birding by trek up the hill through the verdant forest of Penang and towards the Tiger Hill enjoying the sun before it gets too hot. Turning around, you will spot some birds and also see the spectacular views of Penang and the mainland.The Birding takes about 3 hours.

Reaching the top of the hill, you will be guided through to the Habitat Trail for birding. This birding walk takes 2 hours, during which you will likely see a wide variety of birds, if you are lucky you may even see the dusky langurs or the giant black squirrel during your walk. The walk finishes around 12.00pm. We then proceed to David Brown’s Tea Terrace and enjoying the scenery before we proceed back to the train (or by vehicle) and taking the ride downhill.
