From where can you get the best view of Langkawi island? Gunung Raya hill? Langkawi Cable Car?
Nope. Gunung Machinchang - island's second highest peak - is the answer.
While the view from Langkawi Cable Car top platform definitely isn't bad. Not at all. You can get an ever better 360 degree view from the nearby Gunung Machinchang. And it will cost you nothing.
Well, apart from your own sweat. Because getting there isn't easy. It takes about an hour of hiking if you are fit, 2-3 hours - if you aren't. Trail is easy to follow, but it's steep. It starts from the top of the Seven Wells waterfall.
P.S. Gunung in Malay means mountain, if you were curious.
