Panoramic Cable Car
What we say:
On the top of every visitors list, and deservedly so, is the Panoramic Cable Car and Sky Bridge.
Set in western Langkawi, the Cable Car takes you to the top of Gunung Mat Cincang, the second highest mountain in Langkawi at 700 metres above sea level. From the summit you can enjoy a bird’s eye view of Langkawi and on a clear day you can even see Thailand.
The cable car has three stations -- the base station (ie., ground level) set within Oriental Village, the middle station at 650 metres high, which has two viewing platforms and the top station at 708 metres from where you can walk to an observation deck and the Sky Bridge.
The views both from within the car and from each of the upper stations are simply breathtaking. Coasting over the dense forest we were lucky enough to see hornbills fly under us.
One warning, if you have trouble with extreme heights, consider carefully if this is really for you. The jaunt from the base station to the middle station in particular can be a bit unnerving and once you are up there it is a very very long walk down.
