Gunung Mat Cincang Gondwana Mountain Telaga Tujuh  Datai Beach




Gunung Mat Cincang - A Walk in the Clouds
The legendary Gunung Mat Cincang, Langkawi's second highest peak was believed to have been once a being named Mat Cincang who turned himself into a mountain. Fables aside, today the mountain rises in a spectacular skyline of crags that glow pink in the sunset and is part of the Mat Cincang Range which comprises of some of the oldest rock formations in Malaysia, dated about 2,400 million years old

Take a walk above the clouds on the new pedestrian bridge at Gunung Mat Cincang. Suspended at 700 metres above sea level the unique curved pedestrian bridge spans 125 metres across a scary chasm.



Views are spectacular, offering a panorama over the landscape, the Andaman Sea, offshore islands and beyond to neighbouring Thailand. Unlike straight bridges where you can see from the starting point, the bridge has been curved to provide different perspectives over the land and sea. Convenient triangular platforms located along the curved bridge provide rest areas so you can sit and appreciate both the beauty of nature and an incredible feat of engineering.

Gondwana Mountain
Gondwana is simply fascinating and differs from the other landscapes in Langkawi. Joining up with Gunung Mat Cincang the steepness of this mountain area shows how great the tectonic pressures can be.
In all of 23,000 islands in the South-East Asia, not one can pose a challenge to the geological to the geological beauty of the Langkawi Islands

Telaga Tujuh (Seven Wells)
Visitors to Pantai Kok should travel two kilometres further north to see the breathtaking Telaga Tujuh or "seven wells". The waterfall is so named because its cascading water flows into the other creating the seven pools.
The swift flowing water has created smooth rock surfaces allowing the water to flow from one pool to another; finally cascading 90 metres down into the seventh pool. From the car park, you'll walk pass several tourist shops to get to the entrance. After walking up for a short while, you'll see a sign directing to 'Waterfall' on your left. It's not the Seven Wells but it's worth a short visit. After this waterfall, walk back to the original path and continue walking up for around 330 steps - you'll get to the Seven Wells Waterfalls.

The short climb to the top of the falls will take about 45 minutes through the rainforest. You're likely to see long-tailed macaque monkeys and, if you're lucky, the giant cream coloured squirrels or even catch a glimpse of a hornbill, considered the most unique of all Malaysian birds.

The water is cool and clear, ideal for swimming after the hike up. Starting from the highest well you can slide down one by one through all these shallow pools (the interconnecting stone channels are very smooth). The rich green forest that surrounds the waterfall adds a mystical touch to the splendour. Legend says that the waterfalls were so pretty that fairies were unable to
resist its charm and made it their bathing place. Some of the plants growing around the pools are said to have been left behind by them.

Note
* Remember to bring your swimsuits
* Beware of the slippery algae on the rocks
*Good walking shoe with good sole is recommended.
*Not recommended during the dry season where the water levels
would be too low to be of ant significance.
