The Langkawi island is really very small so nowhere is far away. The rout to the highest part of the island is very central and it is nearly impossible to navigate around the island without coming near to this road. There is only one access road and it is very windy right up to the top of the mountain. At... More

Views are the best on the island but the industrial masts are difficult to avoid when taking photographs.

Its a good 20 to 30 min drive or you can climb some 4000 steps into the wild to reach to the top. View from top is beautiful. I couldnt spot anyone up there. Hence didn't go inside. Please dont expect much. Good drive plus good view thats it.

Nice stop over during the jet ski rides. Watch out for monkeys. Do not carry any plastic. Plastic attract monkeys as thy think there is food inside.

We go at least six times during a 3 week holiday in LANGKAWI every year. Our last trip November to December 2016 was very disappointing however. We go to do our birdwatching in particular the hornbills which previous years we have see over 100 birds however this year we saw 6. We were told by a local resident that unfortunately... More

Another spot for tourists to view Langkawi Island from the tower that located at the top of Gunung Raya. This is an awesome experience for me with around 20 to 25 minutes drive from Ulu Melaka. Entrance fees : RM10 perperson and you could get a complimentary tea whilst you enjoying the view. I spent almost 1 hr up there... More

WE drove past the entrance road and had time to kill so there we went up to the unknown, didn't see any one till near the top. It;s about a 13km. drive. Was late afternoon, did see several monkeys. Don;t go past the gate at the radio towers or you might get shot, that would be the exciting bit I... More

Views are spectacular but expect to pay if you want to see the views from the tower. You can drive to the "top" but if yo want the "full monty" it's 10RM per adult and 5RM per child. Don't let the "tourism speak" fool you the tea room is a couple of tea pots on a heater, yeah not much... More
