It is a 30 minute-long scenic drive to the top of Gunung Raya, with several lookout points along the way. The mountain peak is a massive granite formation that offers a spectacular view of Langkawi’s verdant surroundings, neighbouring islets, and the Andaman Sea. There’s also a small park, museum, a satellite control tower, and D’Coconut Hill Resort Langkawi – perfect for those looking for a quiet retreat during their Langkawi vacation.

The resort operates a spa centre and an eight storey-tall viewing tower, where visitors can enjoy the best view of Langkawi for about RM10. If you’re feeling hungry, visit Viet Lang Restaurant for authentic Vietnamese delicacies or Italian fare at La Torre, both of which are located in D’Coconut Hill Resort Langkawi and make the perfect place to stop for a meal.

Great for nature enthusiasts, the mountain is also a popular destination for jungle trekking. If you’re not an experienced hiker, joining a nature tour is highly advisable. The best time to trek Gunung Raya is between the months of November and March, when skies are relatively clear with little to no rainfall.
