Gunung Raya, Langkawi

(3.3/5 based on 360+ 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.
