Gunung Raya Reviews & Ratings

  • Driving up is dangerous as it is not well-maintained. It is advisable to only go up when there is sunlight as there are no street lamps along the road up. It can get very cold so bring jackets and wear thicker clothing. Note that the viewing tower and resort at the peak are now abandoned, so don't go by yourself. Good luck and stay safe.

  • The viewing gallery on top has been closed. There is a viewing point a little lower that has great views

  • This place good to visiting because you can see 360 views in Langkawi Island

  • Nice hill destination. In some weekends the destination peak will be closed . The driving experience climbing the hill is awesome

  • Get up there for a nice view of Langkawi and its sourounding islands. You might even have the chance to see the hornbil birds.
