The lower Titi Kerawang falls are more commonly known. But the higher and more beautiful falls are still a well-guarded secret accessed by a hidden trail. Along the way to these almost unknown higher waterfalls, the trail will pass farms of exotic pink ginger flowers which is used in Penang’s famous laksa; and many fruit orchards with durians, mangosteens, jackfruit and other seasonal fruits. Upon reaching the spectacular waterfall, guests will be able to dive into its cold refreshing waters in a natural pool. The duration of this hike is 2 hours, including a one hour swim or relaxing by the waterfall.
There are many hiking trails in Penang. I am one hiker who explores trails without GPS. This way I have explored dozens and dozens of trails including many not marked on any map (a book of my hikes will be released in 2020) and many are unknown even to seasoned hikers. I'll bring you to a wonderful and very unspoiled and unseen part of Penang's jungle. Trails can be as short as 2 hours and as long as 10-12, I have walked them all. Wild life as tortoises, giant black squirrels, wild boar, snakes, monitor lizards, langur monkeys, scorpions, huntchman spiders and many more might cross our path. You haven't seen Penang without seeing the jungle and the orchards.
We'll start from the bus stop in Balik Pulau and go to the entry point of the hiking trail on the west side of Penang. From there we'll go into the plantations to Rexy's Crossing, where we will swim and explore the waterfall and take a different trail back.
12歳以上の方8名まで参加できます。 The hike contains some steeper cement trails. I have done this trail with 12 year olds, with a group aged above 60 and with a 63 year old gentleman with a metal pin in his hip. I am not saying it's a hike for ladies on high heels…
Shorts and t-shirt will do. Small camera or phone. Big cameras can easily be damaged. After the hike there are possibilities to enjoy a good bowl of laksa or an excellent bowl of cendol in the town center of Balik Pulau.
