Gunung Stong

Kelantan’s highest mountain stands at 1,142 meters high. Visitors should not just climb the mountain but also visit ‘Gua Ikan’, which means ‘Fish Cave’, inspired from a rock formation resembling a fish. Legend has it that the Japanese stashed a horde of gold inside which has never been found. Visitors can also swim in the nearby Jelawang waterfalls.
