Mount Mat Cincang, Langkawi Overview

Mount Machinchang is the oldest mountain range of Southeast Asia in Langkawi of Malaysia. Formed 550 million years ago, it provides a panoramic view of the Burau Bay and Pantai Kok from atop. Covered by dense rainforest, Gunung Mat Cinang, as also named, is the second-highest peak of Langkawi with a steep trail path guided by ropes. As high as 850 M, travellers can witness the Seven Wells waterfall at the beginning of their hike to the peak after climbing a few hundreds of staircases.

Being one of the three UNESCO World Heritage Geoparks in Langkawi, Mount Machinchang exhibits a wide change in the flora structure from downwards to the peak, possessing dense giant trees at the base and small bushier trees and orchids at the top. Also known as the Mount Mat Cincang, snack carts are available for trekkers at the base of Cincang. Visitors also crowd up in Mount Mat Cincang to experience the famous cable car ride, moving passengers up to 709 M above sea level to the apex, for a clear and astounding 360 degrees unhindered view. The mischievous Macaque monkeys and eagles will follow you through your journey, as well.
