(3.3/5 based on 10 reviews on the web)
One of the most impressive engineering works on the island, Teluk Bahang Dam was built to provide an alternative water supply. The surrounding scenery of hills and lakes complements the engineered work, in fact, the dam can be photographed from different points along the main road that winds through the area. Stretching up to a height of 58.5 m (192 ft) and out to a length of 685 m (2,247 ft), the dam represents an impressive work of local engineering and craftsmanship. It was completed in 1999.

  • Nice jogging place, beautiful scenery.
  • Beautiful dam and awesome scenery
  • Must go place when you visit Penang! A good place to take photos.
  • Just a quick stop for a photo taking if you are on the round island trip. The state govt could do more to make this place more attractive to visitors. Has regularly hosted dragon boat rowing events.
  • Very windy but not many benches for a stretch of road that long.
