A Beacon of Hope
Famed for its outstanding scenery and heritage, Penang charms visitors from far and wide. But its best kept secret probably lies in a discreet corner where nature thrives.
Gazetted a reserve in 1928, this 1,265 hectare site becomes a National Park in 2003. 80 hectare of virgin jungle. Over 1,000 plant species has been recorded here.
Being so close to George Town, the wealth of flora and fauna seems all the more remarkable, as habitats include a rare meromictic lake where fresh and sea water meet.
