Hike and discover the lush beauty of the hidden forest at Batu Ferringhi with Peter.
Apart from the cultural heritage and diverse community in Georgetown, the beauty of nature in Penang is something that you must not miss. This trail starts at the entrance beside a roadside stall, opposite Bayview Hotel Batu Feringgi. Though it may not seem impressive from the entrance, you will be amazed by the wonders in it. A beautiful waterfall will greet you after 10 minutes of walk, and that is only the first sight!
This hike is suitable for all to experience, from 8 years old and above, as the topography of the trip is not steep.
Along the way, enjoy the fresh air and diverse landscape of the waterfall and Batu Feringghi river. Your guide will share his knowledge about the British engineering on site, such as the aqueduct and dam system that supplies drinking water to the nearby neighborhood. Before heading down, take a cooling dip in the river at the upper stream.
Let's go hiking!
We will meet at Chin Farm, where we will head down a trail to the Batu Feringghi dam and aqueduct. The dam has been around for over a century and is one of the many remnants of colonial British at Batu Ferringhi. You might even catch a glimpse of wildlife! As we enter the forest, reach a river where you can take a dip in the middle of a lush, pristine forest. From here, we can head down while seeing other buildings that have stood against the tests of time.
