The Langkawi Cable has 3 stations. The Base Station is located in the Oriental Village at about sea level. The journey to Middle station at about 650m above sea leavel is 1700m in length and takes about 15min. Be warned though, the journey in the skycab is not for the faint-hearted! The Langkawi Cable Car is steepest cable car in the world and at times it feels like you are going up vertically along the cliff. So if you are afraid of heights, you think might wanna twice before entering the car. The journey from the Middle station to the Top station (708m above sea level) is another 450m. From the Top Station on Gunung (Mount) Machincang you can enjoy amazing views of the the island(s) from two viewing platforms. The Top Station also gives access to the Sky Bridge.

The cable car might stop operating during bad weather (strong winds). It makes more sense to do the ride on a clear day anyway to enjoy the views of Langkawi and the surrounding islands (up to the Southern Islands of Thailand).
 

Sky Bridge
The spectacular Sky Bridge is a 125m long suspended bridge hanging 100m above ground on a 82m high single pylon! Currently, the Skybridge is closed for maintainance.
