The sky is literally the limit with Langkawi SkyCab. This thrilling cable-car system shuttles visitors more than 1,700 metres to the top of majestic Machincang Mountain, passing over dramatic jungle landscapes and rock formations in gondolas perfect for small, intimate groups. Dramatic 360-degree views of Langkawi, southern Thailand and their surrounds await you at the top, where the clouds are at your fingertips.
If soaring at amazing heights and spectacular vistas are right up your alley, don’t miss the Langkawi SkyCab. The gravity-defying but super-safe gondolas on this cable-car ride hang from a single cable as they sway their way to the top of Machincang Mountain.
From your window seat, enjoy a bird’s-eye view of the surrounding islands as well as the native flora that lines this 15-minute-long route. For even more exhilarating views, opt for the glass-bottomed gondolas.
These transparent floors allow for a truly unique perspective – and great photo opportunities – of the treetops directly below. The SkyCab stops at Middle Station, 650 metres above sea level. From there, it’s just a short climb on foot to Top Station (708 metres above sea level), which opens on to two mountain-top viewing platforms that promise even more phenomenal views.
You’ll find the SkyCab attraction in the aptly named Panorama Langkawi, a park that offers a number of exhilarating scenic experiences. Thrillseekers will not want to skip crossing the SkyBridge, one of the world’s longest curving suspension bridges.
The SkyBridge entrance is at Top Station. If you prefer to keep your feet on solid ground, take the SkyTrail guided trek through the jungle to learn more about this stunning natural setting. Or get your wheels spinning with the all-terrain vehicles (ATVs), miniature racing motorcycles (‘pocket bikes’) and electric cars of SkyAdventurePark.
SkyCab operates from 9:30am to 7pm daily, including public holidays; however, the ride does close for one-day maintenance from time to time, so it’s a good idea to check the schedule before you visit.
