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.
