Gunung Raya is the highest mountain in Langkawi and offers a scenic view over Langkawi. The winding road gives a spectacular oversight over the jungle. The road going up there offers a challenge for your ride but it is so nice.

Opening Hours: Always open
Entrance fee: FREE but there is a outlook tower you can climb on the top for RM10.
When to visit: on a clear day, look up towards the top (with all the masts) and check to see that there are not too many clouds… The weather changes quickly tho.
