Mt. Machinchang (Gunung Mat Chinchang)
Mt. Machinchang (Gunung Mat Chinchang) is the second highest peak on Langkawi and the oldest mountain in the whole of Southeast Asia. This majestic mountain range is covered in dense rainforest and features some incredibly old and impressive rock formations. Mt. Machinchang, also written Mt. Mat Cincang and Gunung Mat Cincang, is one of three UNESCO World Heritage Geoparks on Langkawi and is understandably one of the top tourist attractions on the island.

The rainforest within Mt. Machinchang is home to some ancient, gigantic trees, as well as a flurry of forest animals, including the macaque monkey and an array of birdlife, including the eagle – the symbol of Langkawi itself.

A cable car carries passengers 709 meters above sea-level to the top of Mt. Machinchang. One of the steepest cable car rides in the world, the journey offers breathtaking views of the rainforest and the Seven Wells Waterfall, along with Langkawi’s islands scattered in the Andaman Sea below. From the top of the peak on a clear day, Mt. Machinchang presents sweeping views all the way to the Malaysian mainland and even across to southern Thailand.

Practical Info

The most popular and scenic way to see Mt. Machinchang is to take the cable car ride from Oriental Village, located at the foot of the mountain in the Pantai Kok area. Opening hours are 10am-7pm from Monday to Thursday, 12-7pm on Wednesdays and 9:30am-7pm on weekends.

Half Day Langkawi Discovery Tour

Half Day Langkawi Discovery Tour

For many years, the tropical climate and equally-inviting beaches have made Langkawi one of the most popular destinations for soaking in some sun after touring the country. The island proudly wears the badge ‘The Jewel of Kedah’ since 2008 with distinction, knowing that Langkawi is surrounded by azure-blue water that calmly wash upon the silky-sand shores. The inlands of the island are covered with pristine jungle, as outstanding and inviting as its chilled beach life. From flora to fauna, when you look for a half day seeing the highlights of Pulau Langkawi, this excursion will only touch the tip of the island’s iceberg, inscribed as a World Geopark.
