In my case, I decided to go hiking with my best friends and sister. When my friend first suggested hiking to Monkey Beach and to the lighthouse at Muka Head, I was a bit sceptical as I knew I was a bit unfit to be hiking up and I was dreading the after effects of the hike but I thought why not because that's how you gain experiences and build memories, right?
So, sis and I woke up at 6.45am, got ready, picked up two friends on the way and headed to another friend's house who would be driving up to Teluk Bahang where the Penang National Park is located. This was our first hike together and our first time to Monkey Beach. We're generally not an outdoors kind of group and bearing in mind that we don't exercise much, this was indeed a challenge for us but it was a good bonding session/team building exercise for all of us.
The hike up to Monkey Beach was not too bad. The one that killed us was the hike up to the lighthouse! We almost wanted to give up halfway through as well! Thankfully, we also met a great bunch of people who so graciously helped us at a few difficult spots and even volunteered to walk behind us so that they could back us up and help us along the way (Big shout out to Ryan and the gang!!) !
Here are a few pictures from our trip up to Monkey Beach and the Lighthouse!

If you haven't been to Monkey Beach or to the Lighthouse at Muka Head, do try it out. If I can do it, you can too!
|Have a great week ahead, friends!|
