Walking in Penang for the non-suicidal – Walk 7 – climbing Penang Hill on the Moongate track

Previously I’ve walked up Penang Hill, starting at the Penang Botanical Gardens.  This time I decided to start at Moongate, especially given that it’s easy to park in the carpark a couple of minutes walk away, whereas the Botanical Gardens carpark is packed first thing in the morning.

Start at Moongate, and turn soft left up the hill

the path was littered with these papers - I hope they come and pick them up. Otherwise there was no litter.

at first there are a lot of steps going up - which is quite tiring

  1. Actually, the paper trails are called hash paper. It’s actually quite common in trail roads. Its purpose is to be as guides just in case people got lost in the trails. =)

    1. Hi Alvin. I see. It would be nice if they picked them up after they’ve finished. Or made something more permanent, if they aim to act as a guide. As it is, it looks like littering.
