Penang Hill

Breathtaking! No matter how many times you been up there, it feels like a new experience every time. Penang Hill, also known as Bukit Bendera or Flagstaff Hill, is 833 m (2,723 ft) above sea level and stands out prominently from the lowlands as a hilly and forested area.

A hill with elevation of about 833 m (2723 ft) has proved that it is one of the toughest for local mountain bikers, but ironically, this make people come back for more. For those who not bike or hike but wish to experience this wonderful hill, obviously taking a ride on this charming Swiss made funicular train is the best way to get up there.

Is there a DH (down hill) trail that you can ride after climbing to the top?

Reminds me of place I ran once while living in Tokyo, called Mt. Takao. We ran up it and then took the gondola down to save on our knees.

There is, but sadly not from the top. It's somewhere at 'Point 84' (about 460m elevation)
