Durian Perangin Lankawi Crystal Mahsuri Mausoleum




Durian Perangin Waterfalls
The main attraction of Durian Perangin is the attractive 14-tier waterfall that cascades down from the slopes of nearby Gunung Raya. The unique rock formation found around this area makes the place suitable for picnics and relaxing dips in the cool, clear water. Every tier of the waterfall has its own natural attributes which makes these natural pools unique.

Spectacular during the monsoon season around late September to early October, when it rains a lot and the water level remains high. The swimming pools are inviting, with cool water that is guaranteed to wash away the woes of the weariest traveller and refresh him mind, body and soul. The Durian Perangin area houses a wide variety of flora and fauna in the surrounding lowland dipterocarp forest. The main plant species are rengas, merapoh, periang, melunak, meranti temak, meranti jerit, rattans and palms.

These falls are along a turn-off about fifteen metres north of Kuah. Three kilometres along rough dirt track, and a ten minute walk through the forest will lead you to the foot of the falls. It is advisable to wear comfortable shoes with a good grip if you are planning a trip here.
Location: Nearby the Air Hangat Hot Springs

Langkawi Crystal
Over time, what began as a humble glass-blowing house in 1996 has grown
into a highly reputable crystal ware production centre. Today, Langkawi Crystal pieces are sought and collected for their unique design and quality.

Visitors will find a wide range of skilfully crafted crystal items including glasses, bowls, and other crystal ornamental items to suit every occasion. There are also special collector's items for those who demand exclusivity. Visitors will also get to witness the extraordinary glass-blowing skills of craftsmen. You can also take the opportunity to try your hand at glass-blowing skills here.
