Bird-Eyes View From Langkawi Cable Car

Langkawi Cable CarEver felt like being a bird to see the ground from high above? Well, a trip with Langkawi Island’s Cable Car would fulfill that! Known as one of the major attractions in Langkawi Island of Kedah, Malaysia, this Panorama Cable Car would bring tourists all the way to the top of the well-known mountain, none other than Gunung Machinchang. As for the ones that are acrophobia, or rather, have the fear of heights, then this is one of the chances to face your fears!

Firstly, tourists that wish to ride on the cable cars are advised to choose a day where the skies are blue and the sun shining right through, as bad weather would affect the service, and they might put the system on hold as a safety precaution. On an unrelated note, tourists with a Malaysian Identification Card; Mykad would be able to get a discount for the ride.

Located half an hour from Kuah city, the base station of this cable car ride would be at the Oriental Village, south west coast of the island itself. Once visitors are on the cable car, they would be able to see breathtaking views of Langkawi Island as whole, from the forests reserves to the blue green ocean. Having to see Langkawi Island from a birds-eye view would be a thrilling experience to some as they would never have thought to be all the way to the peak of 709 metres!

One of the beautiful scenes to look out for while being in one of the cable cars would be the Seven Wells Waterfall. From the top, visitors would manage to catch the entire sight of the waterfall which is really, a remarkable view not to be missed.

Prior to reaching the top station, visitors can stop at the middle station whereby they could get down from the cable cars and proceed to take panoramic pictures of Langkawi Island as a remembrance. Picture-taking aside, visitors at the middle station could catch a breath of nature’s fresh air before proceeding to the highest peak.

Once visitors have reached the top station, there would be two gigantic viewing platforms and also a cafe that serves refreshments for visitors while they enjoy the cool breezes as well as the beautiful scenery.

In a nutshell, this cable car system is another to-do on the list, seeing that it has once been endorsed by The Malaysian Book of Records for being ‘The Longest Span Single Rope Cable Car’; at least that is something for the visitors to boast around once they’ve done visiting!
