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. For travelers who use our custom trip planner, Teluk Bahang holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Teluk Bahang Dam and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

  • Beautiful dam and awesome scenery
  • Must go place when you visit Penang! A good place to take photos.

  • Teluk Bahang, a place can go jogging on early morning and evening.
  • Nice place to relax
