Venture into the beautiful natural treasures of Tasek Gelugor to discover local traditions and lifestyle at the fisherman jetties.
Tasek Gelugor is a 18km river lined by lush greenery and quaint fishing villages. Now recognized as an agrotourism destination, you are welcomed to enjoy the pristine riverside beauty and the fascinating myriad of activities.
Take a river cruise to see how fisherman go about their daily lives, experience their well-preserved traditions, enjoy birdwatching, and discover the flora and fauna surrounding you. Join a guided tour of the Educational Forest, equipped with elevated walkway, canopy walk and watch tower will enrich your knowledge about the flora and fauna of the swamp forest.
Along the way, hop off several fisherman jetties to get a glimpse of village life. Taste local food like Peknga, tapai pulut, ikan pekasam and traditional snacks. Learn about livestock rearing, play fun traditional games, and even milk a goat the way they do in villages! If you plan to stay longer, you have more time to explore more village activities as you cycle through the village or engage in seasonal activities at nearby paddy field.
The River Trail in Tasek Gelugor Agro Tourism programme is a not-to-be-missed highlight of your trip to Penang!
