Penang National Park

Last week, a lovely Finnish traveler and I decided to spend a day trekking in Penang National Park. There were several different trails to choose from but we took the one that would lead us to "Turtle Beach", where at night you can apparently find great numbers of turtles on the shore. The trek lead us through what was essentially a jungle with loads of plants, streams and sounds made by different insects. We were rewarded at the end with a secluded beach that we had almost all to ourselves (we saw maybe 10 or so people the whole time we were there) where we got to tan and relax for a few hours before heading back.

Stunning scenery

Pretty much our own private beach

Amazing, apart from the jellyfish in the water!

I am coming to the conclusion that Malaysia may have the most natural beauty out of any country I've ever seen. Photos to come from the Cameron Highlands!

What an amazing day that must have been. The scenery looks incredible. What was the temperature that day? See any snakes?

Don't know exactly what the temp was but hot and humid that's for sure! No snakes, just monkeys luckily!
