taman03.jpg (6328 bytes)The uniqueness of Langkawi lies in its legendary heritage that has become a tourist attraction par excellence.

In world geological history, all of earth’s region was separated due to formations of new seas and the drying up of old ones. In the Cambrian age, more than 500 million years ago, there was a big region named Gondwana which was situated in the South Pole, while the other smaller regions and islands are situated near to the Tropical Line and the North Pole. Soon, the Gondwana Region began to go through tectonic separation to form smaller regions and islands such as Africa, Australia, India and definitely Langkawi.

Standing tall near Tanjung Buta, Gunung Matchinchang which contains different types of rocks covers a big portion of the Gondwana Mountains. The steepness of the 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 beauty of the Langkawi Islands.
