Langkawi Cable Car & Skybridge

No visit to Langkawi will be complete if one did not take the cable car ride to the top of Mount Mat Chincang.

 
The cable car ride is thrilling and scary for those who fear height. One way or another, one will be rewarded with a scenic ride on it.

 
En route to the peak, the Skybridge, which is the pride of Langkawi stood proudly the midst of the protected mother nature.

Skybridge is an engineering feat and is built on top of the Mount Mat Chincang.

 
The bridge is suspended from a 82m high single pylon and the whole curve bridge structure is supported from a single point, which is the top of the pylon.

 
 
Although the cable car will make a brief stop at the middle station (65m above sea level) for those who want to alight there, one can stay inside the cab which will proceed its journey to the top station.

 
 
 
There are 2 main viewing platforms at the top station and they offers a magnificent view. The temperature here is about 1 - 2 degree Celcius cooler from the base.

From this vantage point (70m above sea level), one can see Padang Matsirat, Chenang beach, Oriental Village, Kok beach, Telaga Harbour Park and Mutiara Burau Bay.

Ko Tarutao. For those who still remember the reality TV Show, Survivor Thailand, this is where the contestants outplay, outwit and outlast each other.
