The drive up to Gunung Raya is truly beautiful, I saw monkeys crossing the road and some
amazing birds in the trees. It is possible to pull over and watch all this as you go up to Gunung Raya. At the very top you can also see the wonderful views. However, I then paid 10 ringgits to go
up the tower, which was a mistake. Yes there were some excellent views, but at the very top was what used to be a restaurant? There was even coffee boiling, but not one there to serve it. I looked around, there were two refridgerators, I looked inside and was shocked to see cockroaches! The hygiene was awful and I paid 10 ringgits for that. Take my advise, go up the mountain and enjoy the views, but do not enter the building/tower at the very top.

I actually found this by accident while driving around the island. The road up is long, and very rough in parts and quite steep. When you get to the too I'm told the. Utilising used to be a resort, now it just looks like a prison but the views are spectacular. It's in the middle of nowhere but worth the adventure.

A nice and long drive up. Have a chance to see wild animals eg dusky leaf monkey. The view is nice on the top. Did not take the lift as I think not much difference. The price of taking the lift is RM10.

Worth the drive around the mountain.
But do pick a clear day the view is tremendous.
You do get to see wildlife here as well.

The view from the top is good but everything up there is closed so please visit the toilets before you make the long drive up.

You will be better served with the views from the various lookout points along the way up.
