Penang Nature Walk

Get back to nature on the ultimate rainforest experience. This private tour with a naturalist will introduce you to the secrets of The Habitat: Penang’s remarkable rainforest discovery centre, which aims to educate visitors about a more sustainable future. Begin at ground level and stroll along the nature trail, slowly ascending into the treetops on the Langur Way Canopy Walkway, suspended 30 metres above the forest floor. Climb higher still and take a deep breath as you rise to the top of Curtis Crest Tree Top Walk, which is nestled in the treetops of ancient conifer trees 800 metres above sea level. Then take time out to enjoy the cool breeze of the rainforest as you soak up the island views from a giant swing.
