Gunung Raya, Langkawi

3.6
#5 of 15 in Nature in Langkawi
As the highest point on Langkawi, Gunung Raya provides sweeping panoramas of the rainforest-clad island. Reach the 881 m (2,890 ft) summit by cable car or by climbing the 4,200 steps. Keep an eye out for small waterfalls, tropical birds, monkeys, giant lizards, and colorful butterflies among the lush vegetation. A viewing tower sits at the top of the summit, offering 360-degree views. If you choose to hike, bring plenty of water--the tropical heat makes for an exhausting climb. Make Gunung Raya a centerpiece of your Langkawi vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our Langkawi itinerary planning website .

  • It's a nice drive up the mountains. The views are spectacular from here in all directions. The tower when open was great to chill out and have tea served up there watching the sunsets. However recent visit there and was disappointed that the tower has been closed until further notice. Nevertheless good views from the road side still and well worth the visit.
  • It's very nice place. You can see all langkawi. And very quiet. Also you can have a nice coffee up there. You can make your own coffee.
