  • Announcement

    The Federal Government announced on 10 May 2020 that the Conditional Movement Control Order (CMCO) extended until 9 June 2020.

    In view of forest eco-tourism is still prohibited during the CMCO period and to ensure no mass gatherings at Penang Hill, PHC would like to announce that the funicular service will continue to remain close for visitors until further announcements by the authorities.

    At this moment, PHC only provides scheduled funicular trips to the hill residents and authorised workers at Penang Hill.

    PHC would like to thank everyone for your understanding and support to Penang Hill. Stay tuned to our Facebook page or log on to www.penanghill.gov.my for updates.
