Penang Hill – Conquered

Getting a lil adventurous lately. After my Adventure Penang trip, I decided to take things higher by going up Penang Hill. Actually the original plan was to take the tram up and then rent a bicycle and cycle around. But since we have cursed luck; the tram is closed for maintenance just the day before, we decided to go up on foot.

It was good exercise and also a good experience since the last time I climb was when I am 10 or 12 years old. Yup thats how long it has been.

We(Me, Cindy & Rachel) reach Botanical Garden at about 9.30a.m and saw many people there who happens to be MGSian. Apparently they are having their cross country run on that day. So we hang out there for awhile since Cindy and Rachel are ex-MGSian. We only begin our climb at about 9.30a.m from the Moon Gate.

Anyway here are some of the photos I (or anybody holding the camera took) while on our way up.

Encountered this food-deprived dog at the rest hut at level 34

Deprived of food but still a very intelligent and obedient dog!

Rest House no. 84. This is the rest hut for level 84. which is also the half-way mark!

A closer look

We decided to put the camera to action when we take breaks along the way

Moving along. Nice scenery!

Look at how hazy Penang is from above. I can barely see Seberang in the horizon

Kilometer 4.7!! About 400 meters more to the top!

What is that?!! We reached already!!??? Yay!!! This is one of the temple on the peak

The tired and beat-up look. Fuhhhhh…Finally….Reached liau. Rachel here is checking how long it took us to reach the top. The results – 3 full hours! LOL.

From the top!

Compared to my Adventure Penang. See the difference in height? ^^,

Stiched photo. Full top view! But look there are different shades T.T Due to my camera’s angle from the sun.

I actually kinda like this photo. Ignoring my funny smile(its due to the sun kay >.< ), it looks nice

I just love all the clouds and the endless horizon! Makes me feel that I am small

Penang!! Here I am as a cannon ball. Ready to fly down and then knock my head on a building >.< .Ouch!

The skies


Megaants!!! Encountered it on our way up too. But took this when we were coming down. Cause this is the only pic that is not blur.

The three of us siao kia.

Well that completes my trip report this time. It was a great trip and also a great experience. Though my other two comrade on this trip ended up walking like a penguin due to sore muscles, it was still great! And oh yeah what a better way to end our journey with a cold coconut! I forgot to take pic because was too obsessed with the coconut cause it was delicious and refreshing!! LOL.
