Fantastic view from the top in a some directions, can't see a lot the other way as the tower is currently closed. If that reopens it will be worth a vist and sunset would be spectacular.

It’s a worthwhile enough experience so long at there isn’t cloud to obscure the view. Great views from the top and monkeys and forest along the way. It’s free to park and the tower was closed when we went. Would make a good location for...More

The theme in Langkawi is inept management of an amazing place. They are moronic about how they treat their resources, making them as unappealing and grungy looking as possible. This is sad for a country with as much wealth as Greece on PPP basis.

The viewing Tower is closed indefinitely and all else is desolate. Views were minimal and very hazy. Only good part was seeing some dusky leaf monkeys on the drive down the mountain

Shame the tower is still shut at the top with no tea shop in sight. Windy road to the top with stopping points to take a look at the views through the rainforest.

If you love a good panoramic view over Langkawi island then the highest peak of the island is better than the over crowded SkyCab. Despite a sign in scooter rental shop, it was an easy 30 minute drive up the mountain, and not too strenuous...More
