A cable car ride takes you to Langkawi's second highest peak, where the view of the surrounding islands is spectacular. On a clear day, you can see parts of Thailand towards the north and Indonesia towards the south-west. The cable car ride up the hill takes about 20 minutes and is highly exhilarating. The over-ruling height of Machinchang mountain(708m), its commanding views over Langkawi, the western sea-coast, and the dramatic views over the funnel with its staggered rock blocks will make the visitors wonder in amazement and bring the visitors so close to nature that they can practically touch it.
Another unique attraction to the Langkawi Cable Car is the Langkawi Sky Bridge. The bridge is located atop of the Machinchang mountain and forms part of the Gunung Machincang Geo-eco Tourism Park. The sky bridge hangs at about 100m above the ground, swinging out over the landscape to give visitors a unique spatial experience. Measuring 125m in length, the structure ranks among the world’s longest curved suspension bridge. As a bonus, your ride will take you over jungle waterfalls and a thick carpet of virgin rainforest. It's a very educational and thrilling experience for the whole family.
