日莱峰(GUNUNG JERAI)






日莱峰(GUNUNG JERAI),又称吉打山(KEDAH PEAK),海拔1216公尺,它是马来半岛西北方最高的一座山,被当时的航海者视為“方向之星”,是国内著名的旅游区之一 。

日莱峰的西面是坐落在瓜拉姆达县,东面则坐落在铅县。一座山头也分為3个管辖范围,即从山脚至半山腰的小型森林博物院是由铅县管辖;小型博物院及山顶分别属於瓜拉姆达县和州政府管辖。

一般上,人们是从吉中峨仑(瓜拉姆拉县)的山脚盘旋而上13公里才可以抵达日来峰山顶。日莱峰的空气清新凉爽。若是遇上好天气,阳光普照时,还能自山顶上俯瞰四週,远眺自吉打沿伸至玻璃市的稻田。

望向西南方,可以看到碧蓝的海洋围绕著檳岛;面向西北方,可以看见具有神秘色彩的浮罗交怡。由於日莱峰与马来半岛的群岛相隔,致使山上的植物自成一格,与其他山区不同,显得另有特色。

追溯古时,天气异常美好时的日莱峰是皇室家族的渡假胜地,至了1975年才开放给公眾前来此处体验大自然。山顶的气候可说是冷中带风,平时的气候是摄氏20至21度,年杪只有摄氏19度,天气凉爽。

如何到达 :
By Car
On the North-South Highway, take the Gurun exit out of the highway. Turn left after the toll and then get to a junction turn right to Gurun town itself. From here its just a short distance away and then turn left at the sign to Gunung Jerai.

By Bus
From KL
Take the Ekspress Sutra from the Puduraya Bus Terminal. This bus goes through the old road that snakes its way up to Alor Setar from Pekan Gurun (this is the exit from the North-South Highway). Please inform the driver that you wished to be dropped off at the Pekan Gurun bus terminal.

From Alor Setar
Just take the local buses that ply the Alor Setar - Sungei Patani routes. They will pass through Pekan Gurun where you can ask the driver for a drop off.

By Taxi
From Pekan Gurun
Catch a cab from Pekan Gurun to the foot of Mount Jerai for about RM2. If you rather walk, it is about 1km from the bus terminal.
