Gunung Keriang

It is located about 8 km north-west of Alor Setar close to the Kedah Paddy Museum.It is geologically unique and ten different rocks are found here including attractive calcite crystals which are much sought after by collectors and fung-shui believers.Like most of Malaysia's limestone formations, the hill is riddled with caves including a larger one known as Gua Keriang.

On the south eastern edge of the hill is the Gunung Keriang Recreational Park which has walking trails with concrete railings and viewing gazebos. It is possible to hike up to the summit to obtain good views of the surrounding rice plains.There is also a children's playground but the area is suffering from a lack of maintenance and the park's signposts and maps are no longer legible.Entrance to the park is free.Next to the recreational park is a street market selling food, clothing and sundry items but there are also a few stalls selling crystals which presumably have been extracted (looted?) from the caves.
