Froghill, Kampung Guar Petai, Penang | Malaysia’s Jiuzhaigou

scenic photography location Penang

Froghill (Bukit Katak) at Kampung Guar Petai outside Butterworth, Penang, is a new photography paradise that is also known as a mini Jiuzhaigou of Malaysia. You don’t have to travel all the way to China’s remote mountainside now. The pristine blue lakes of varying sizes there were said to be formed by rainwater filling up dozens of holes left behind by earlier quarrying activities.

These man-made lakes are surrounded by red color rocks, making the area a scenic spot that has gained popularity in more recent years. Prepare sunblock, umbrella (hat) if you intend to go in the afternoon, water to keep you hydrated for a long day of photoshoot. Also shoes for hiking as you need to climb some slopes to get a better view. Amazing sunset and sunrise up there. The way in from Jalan Arumugam Pillai does not have a road name, not tarred, is muddy and quite secluded.

Good scenery. View is amazing. Best come with sunblock applied n good hiking shoe, Prepare to wash ur car after that, muddy road, the way is creepy. The former mine that has been turned into a beautiful location for photography. The best sunrise and sunset. The road leading to it is horrible, needs to be improved.

To be safe, never go there alone as the place is very outskirt and doesn’t have any residents around. Be prepared to wash your car due to red mud (especially after a raining day). If it’s hot, prepare an umbrella as the place doesn’t have shades and to avoid heat stroke. Be sure to wear comfortable (climbing shoes) and keep yourself hydrate if you will be there for a long photo shoot. Nice view! In order to view the scenery we must climb some slopes. After climbing some slope, we are able to see some scenery from higher area. a lot of ponds.


how to go to froghill
From Jalan Arumugam Pillai, look for the signboard of Kampung Guar Petai and a
car workshop named Pusat Service Kereta SNR Fiterah Jaya
and turn into the small road next to
red mud the direction
You will then pass by a brick factory, keep right and head on straight until the end on muddy untarred road.
