The temperature at the peak is about 3°C to 5°C lower than the temperature at the hill below. Hence, this hill is an ideal place to escape the heat of the day.

Latest Update on the funicular train service: The train will be replaced by a RM63 million upgraded system which is expected to be ready in 7 months time. Hence, the current funicular train will stop operation from Feb 21, 2010 until September 28, 2010. Once it is ready, it will be able to carry a maximum capacity of 1,000 passengers/hour compared to 250 currently.

You can hike all the way up the hill or take the funicular train which has been operational since 1923. The upper funicular train broke down for about 6 months recently but is now up and running since 20 Dec 2008. If you plan to take the train, it is a good idea to go up during weekdays from Mondays to Fridays as it is usually crowded during the weekends.

Refreshments and snacks are sold at the tea kiosk on top of the hill. A hotel, police station and post office facilities are also located on the hill. Along the way up, you will see the lush greeneries of the tropical rainforest and bungalows that were originally built for the British officials. There is a 11-room Bellevue Hotel that you can stay if you want to but many would prefer to stay at the beaches or city where there are more choices of hotels.
