For a wonderful peaceful walk at any time of the day, this is the place to come. Mornin g though is particularly good with it being somewhat cooler. You can take tracks through the jungle if you want more excitement. A must do.

A tranquil hangout for nature lovers. The reservoir contrasts with the greens giving out a sense of calm and peace. Watching the Penang city skyline from the top feels amazing.
