We drove there, hoping to see the spectacular scenery. The top of the hotel is closed, so you can only go to an observation deck near the top, where there is no 360 degree view. I wanted to go out to find more, but was hit by a huge storm. If you choose to hike to Raya Mountain, you will face the challenge of climbing 4200 steps. This is a wonderful hike. You will appreciate the beauty of the jungle and listen to the sounds of nature, although you have to climb many steps. Before climbing the mountain, please be prepared and bring plenty of water, because there is nothing here except the steps. The cafe on the top of the mountain was closed while we were climbing, so I cannot comment on it.
It took a long time for the winding mountain road to reach the top of the mountain. I wanted to overlook the panoramic view of Langkawi from Raya Mountain, but when I reached the top of the mountain, I couldn’t see the entire Langkawi at all, only Raya Mountain surrounded by clouds and fog. .
Highest peak of LangkawiThis is the highest peak of Langkawi island. We as a couple visited this place. We hired a Hatchback car from the hotel rental services. As it was Eid Ul Fitre, biggest muslim festival, the car cost us MSR 90 for 24 hour period.It is advised that not to go at night as the roads are not straight. It takes time to reach the top as the roads are zig zag. Once you have reached it was wonderful. You can spend some time and take pictures as well.
It takes more than ten minutes to drive to Raya Mountain. You may encounter three or two monkeys on the way. You can prepare snacks to feed them in advance. To reach the top of the mountain to go to the tower requires a ticket of 10 MYR/person, but it is really worth it. From the highest point of the mountain, you can overlook the scenery of the entire island, and the fatigue of the day is gone. I came here by accident because the Sky Bridge was closed for annual inspection when I went. I was very surprised and pleasantly surprised.
Raya Mountain does not often appear in Chinese travel notes. We saw it in Langkawi attractions. This is the highest point in Langkawi, overlooking the entire Langkawi Island! When we went there was a bit ready to rain, there was a feeling of being able to touch the clouds, I believe it would be another kind of scenery when the weather is good! The road uphill is a two-way one-way road with a lot of moss, remember not to drive too fast!
