Gunung Jerai hotels
A majestic mountain made entirely of limestone, the one-and-only Gunung Jerai towers 1,217 metres above sea level, achieving a mystical height once revered by the ancient Malays from surrounding areas. This geological marvel juts out dramatically from the plains of Kedah, and once acted as a beacon for seafarers as well as Indian traders more than fifteen hundred years ago. Today, the breathtaking Gunung Jerai still overlooks the area’s bucolic plains, drawing thousands of holidaymakers every year hoping to admire the incredible heights and gorgeous panoramic views. Gunung Jerai virtually teems with all manner of rare fauna and flora, and the mountain’s curious rock formations only lend additional surrealism to an already otherworldly attraction. From Penang, Gunung Jerai’s stunning profile stands out distinctly before an illustrious sea.
