Originated from an abandoned quarry in Kampung Guar Petai, resides an astonishing piece of nature, deemed as the smaller version of China’s well-known Jiuzhaigou. Behold, a hidden den of beautiful turquoise-blue lake water, intertwining with a scenic view of red dusty land – the Frog Hill of Penang.

What to Expect?

Frog Hill which is also known as Gua Perahu or Gua Petai is an abandoned quarry which located in Tasek Gelugor, Bukit Mertajam. It is largely flat and surrounded by rice fields, clumps of trees and houses. Visitors can even spot the trains pass by (every 15-20 minutes I guess) as the railway is just few kilometers beside the Frog Hill.

The hike to the peak of this particular nature artistry is not too steep, making it a suitable fit for a hike with family and friends. Visitors will stumble upon an old red-brick factory, signalling that it is the beginning of your trail. The trail is adorned with red laterite road, providing a more picturesque atmosphere of the former mining spot. Provided that you wear a pair of comfortable and gripping shoes, your hike to the peak will be a breeze.

The reddish landscape of the trail begins to fade away as you hike up. Now is the time to be mesmerized by the formation of rocks around your trail, with accompanying green wild grass and bushes.

The view at the top of the hill translates into a spectacular album for your memory, with clear turquoise-coloured water filling the natural pools, surrounded by chunks of red lands; providing an astonishing panoramic scenery that will take your breath away. The scenery is further adorned by the green beauty of rice fields, clumps of trees and houses, as well as the seldom appearance of wild buffaloes around the area.

The small secluded Frog Hill promises a scenic view regardless of the weather, but make sure you are well-prepared for all conditions. The weather could be scorching hot and there are not many facilities to act as shelters. As such, it is advisable to bring along a cap and sunblock. During rainy days, be sure to keep all your belongings in a waterproof sack or bring an umbrella instead. The umbrella could also be a hiking staff to aid you during your hike.

The land of beautiful nature at the peak of Frog Hill will make your short hike a memory to cherish. So, make sure to add Frog Hill in your itinerary.

    Actually can drive all the way in even sedan car.
    The scenery is just OK, don't expecting too much.
    Go early morning especially cloudy day so you can chill at the top under small plants.

    Small hill with low altitude that remains after construction work. No trees around there so it's very hot in sunny day. It's usually not busy place and landscape is very beautiful because of water colour. Especially beautiful in clear sunny day with blue sky. Hiking trail is easy, short and safe, clear visible. I was there on Sunday afternoon and except me there was only one family. A lot of free parking everywhere. Last 1.5 km before hill the road is very narrow and no concrete.

    Nice place to come, feel the fresh air, see the view and take photos.

    We arrive early like 730am from Perlis.
    The road is red mud road. Ride or Drive carefully after raining.

    Next time, I would like to bring camping chair here and cook a cup of coffee and have my breakfast in this beautiful place.
