Locally known as ‘Frog Hill’, this hidden abandoned quarry has attracted many to its scenic man-made lakes and reddish granite hills, combined with greenery from the surrounding overgrowth. The top of the hill provides a breathtaking views of the scenic landscapes around the area.
Frog Hill is located at an area covering Kampung Guar Petai and Kampung Guar Perahu in Tasek Gelugor, at the mainland side of Penang.
Note: The area itself is secluded and at times, quite empty. There is no maintained road (only muddy path), no street lamp and is deep inside the rural area, surrounded by palm oil plantation. Best to go in a group rather than alone, and there will be some minor hikes required to get to the top of the rocky hills.
