  • This is a free stop on the Awana Skyway. It is worth visiting as it is a beautiful temple. There are also great views.

  • Perfect place to see sea of clouds and sunset. The path with story telling of 18levels of hell was interesting. There is a tortoise 🐢 pool with man made waterfalls located at level 7C . The vegetarian restaurant here serves pretty delicious meal but its a bit pricey. There is a Starbucks here as well where you can enjoy some coffee with a huge Buddha as a backdrop. It's a very peaceful and relaxing place. And many nice spot for stunning photo.
  • Can relax here before going up to genting,drop free by cable car
  • I didn't spend a lot of time here but the highlight for me was the terrific view of the highland valley from the observation deck. There's a bunch of other attractions such as the giant statues, pagoda and caves but I did not have time to see them all. There are a bunch of shops and restaurants at this site. Definitely worth stopping by for a quick visit when the weather is good if you're on the way up to the Genting resort.
  • One of the best place to visit at Genting Highland. Cold breeze here as well as fresh air. I can hear the jungle nearby making sounds perhaps due to monkey or other animals but still it is enjoyable to listen to the nature up here
  • Great place to visit if ever in KL. Easily a 3-hr visit needed,as the grounds are big. Views were splendid, very picturesque mountain scenery,complete with rolling fog.. Reminds me very much of SG's own Haw Par Villa. Good for families,from the very young to elderly.
