Yesterday I trekked up Penang hill for the first time this year. It is a 5km trail that goes up to 2,723 ft (833m) I used to do this really often but I haven’t been for a while so I thought it was a good idea to tick it off my new year’s list. I clocked in 1hr 06 which I think is a fairly decent time.
The view and the scenery makes the torture worthwhile. Lots of pretty flowers, monkeys and i saw a giant blue scorpion and a monitor lizard.
Penang hill is the oldest hill resort in Malaysia. There was a furnicular railway constructed in the early 1900s. Today it has been modernised and the train ride takes 4 mins.
