The second day at Penang; we took a bus to Penang National Park to trek for few hours. The bus ride was amazing riding on the coast along Andaman Sea. The entry to the park is free; there are 2 trails and various spots. The trail that we took was 2 hour one which ends in a secluded and clean beach of Kerachut. The trek is easy for fit people; but for folks like me it was not easy but not hard as well. Walking through the tropical rain forests once again was rewarding.
Nothing between you and the nature - those trees and vines that so alive and in turn provides life to many others, the non stop calls of the cicadas and the crickets; the occasional trickle of water, the breeze and of course the sweat on your brow! Its unexplained feeling.

Destination 2 km away
The trek at times touched the sea
At places; the feet were twisted and turned
Tilt your head - up, up, up
Walk, climb, pant, rest, walk, climb, rest....to end here
The boat takes you back to the national park entrance for 80 MYR. If you are tired and cant trek back; this is the best option
In season; turtles lay eggs here
Met few guys who started off a conversation once they knew we were from India. Nice guys!
