Standing close to 900 meter above sea level, Gunung Raya is the highest point on Langkawi or Mount Raya translated in English. I have seen a topography map which stated the peak of this hill is at 881 meter. At this level of height, Raya would normally be considered as a hill or "Bukit" in Malay language.
What most visitors, locals or foreigners alike, are aware about the nicely laid tarred road that takes one right up to the peak.
