Gunung Raya, Langkawi

Categories: Mountains, Nature & Parks
Inspirock Rating:
3.9/5 based on 320+ reviews on the web
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.

  • Are you on Langkawi then you may skip this really not! We rented a scooter and went on that way up the mountain. This takes about 30-45 minutes (one way). The sound of the scooter was drowned out by all the "jungle sounds". Very nice! We came on the road against all kinds of animals such as monkeys, cows and large and small birds. We saw many animals you normally only in the Zoo. The views are very beautiful and you can look very far at various points. At the top is a view tower where you can buy a ticket for. There is also a hiking trail up the mountain consisting of stairs. We have not run, but if you still want to hear more of nature sounds, this is a good possibility. The views are much nicer than at the Cable Car! You save so the commercial fairground of the Cable Car.

  • Its a decent 12 km drive up in the hills. When you land up there, great views but nothing to rest your feet , have a beer etc. The tea house is a run down place on its last leg of life with few employees wanting to sell you the lift to the tower which you don't need. Just enjoy the drive, take a turn on the top and drive right down. If you are a group on scooters, you should take the trip up as there are no speed limits like in Europe and no cameras so have a blast. Remember to take your own food and beers. We saw a monitor lizard on the way so that was an unexpected bonus of sorts.
  • 1 of the top hill in langkawi ..u can see all of island from here...if wheather fine u can see pensng island and alor star city .
  • Awesome views from the top of the hotel! Costs a bit but you get a complimentary tea. There is also a nice jungle trekking route with 2000 stairs.
  • Nice sunset view. Worth to spend yr time and effort to drive up there for the great view. You can spend another RM10 per pax to go up the tower, for better view.
  • Bayar RM10 untuk lihat pemandangan 360 darjah Langkawi. Jarak pandu kereta Dari kaki gunung lebih kurang 15 km.
