Penang Muka Head Light House

Muka Head Light Penang

When you visit Penang National Park, there are a few of the landmarks that you can check out. Some of these landmarks can be reached easily but some are not. I have visited the Light house at Muka Head. This landmark is considered to be easily reached for me. The light house is about 14m tall and was built in 1883. When you reach the light house, you can are allow to go up to the top of the light house and take a good view of the surrounding.

So, how to go to the light house? To visit the light house, first you must go to the Monkey Beach from the Penang National Park. From Penang National Park, you can choose to way to reach Monkey Beach. You can either jungle trekking to the beach or go to the beach by boat. If you choose to go by jungle trekking, there are no additional charges and all you need is stamina. It took approximately 2 hours to reach the Monkey Beach by jungle trekking. If you choose to go by boat, you will need to pay for RM50 for one way to reach Monkey Beach and it only take about 15minutes. The fee for the boat is counted per trip, so if you go by group you can divide the fee among your group members. So if you are taking the boat to and back from the monkey beach, it will cost RM100.

After you reach Monkey Beach, there is only one way to go to the light house. That is by jungle trekking from the beach up to the light house. It will only take approximately 30 minutes to reach the light house. To return to Penang National Park from the Monkey Beach, you can either take a boat or jungle trekking all the way back to where you started. The light house is a great place to visit if you happen to come to Penang National Park.
