Directions to Penang Hill
Penang Hill comprises several hills including Strawberry Hill, Halliburton's Hill, Flagstaff Hill, Government Hill , Tiger Hill,and Western Hill. The highest point of this range is at Western Hill, with an elevation of 833m (2,723ft )above sea level. The range also serves as the largest water catchment area on the island, and a number of tributaries to major rivers in Penang. With an elevation of more than 2,000ft above sea level, Penang Hill offers the best panorama of George Town, and other conurbations on the eastern coast of Penang Island. Enjoy the view of the northern coast from Crag Hotel, or simply sit back and enjoy the lighting up of George Town at dusk. The cooler climate of Penang Hill, with an average of 21◦C,is an important factor in the establishment of the hill resort which offers a cooler respite away from the hustle - bustle in George Town and its surrounding areas.
The popular way up the hill is by way of a funicular railway but you if you are more adventurous you can hike up from the botanical gardens and take the train downhill, like most locals do on the weekend.
