Hiking at Bukit Jambul

bj.jpg
If you are outdoor activity enthusiast, I bet you must be interested with hiking and trekking activities. In this post, I’d like to share about Bukit Jambul as one of the popular hiking spots in Penang.

Here’s the map on how to get to BJ, the hiking path and the peak of BJ.

From the map, you can see that the hill is facing straight to the Penang bridge. But its hard to take a good picture up here because there are too many trees that block your view.

TIME ATTACK
For the first time, I took about 20 minutes and for the second time, I took about 18 minutes to reach the top. If you have a good stamina, then you can hike faster. Frequent hikers can go up in about ten minutes. Usually going down the hill will take half the time you going up.

HILL TOP FACILITIES
– There are some workout stations
– Gymnasium equipment if you want to build your muscle.
– If you are tired, you can enjoy the view by relaxing on the benches
– Free hot drinks are provided for everyone. But you have to boil it yourself!


I believe that BJ Hiking Club had maintained all the facilities here. This is my last week in Penang. I’ll miss the chance hiking with my friends. More pictures in my Flickr account.

  1. serious, bukit jambul lg penat drpd g. kinabalu. Mungkin sebab g. K ada byk steps, tangga dan sebagainye kot atau perbezaan stamina.

    tapi kalo ko dah reach the top mmg syabas alagapas lah!

  3. saffa baru jer balik daripada hiking at gunung korbu… and we failed to reach the peak. πŸ™
    it’s my first time and I rant a lot during the hiking.. but yeah.. I still want to join it!

    1. pasti lagi mencabar kt Korbu. ye teringat ada baca skali psl pgram2 ARC from your blog..

      next time, try harder to reach the top yea!

    2. Yup, sangat-sangat mencabar. that’s why we had to turn back because the path wasnt being use for .. I dunno. and the raining season make it even harder and of course..

      My friend said that Mt Korbu probably the hardest Mt to hike and if you could make it to the tope. You wouldnt have any prob to hike other Mt.

      Yup! Next time I will make a very good preparation (mentally and physically) and reach the top πŸ˜‰
