Though it can be a bit scary as it is quite a long ride for a cable car. Distance that car covers is huge with some mind boggling depth underneath. Enjoyed my ride to the top. Since there are no ACs. It can get very hot through the journey.

The sky cab is the steepest cable car.Very well Organised and worth a visit.
Can visit the sky bridge from there.
The mountains and forest view is excellent.
There is option of glass floor cabins and have to be booked at time of purchasing the tickets.
Not to be missed if visiting Langkawi.
The restaurant in oriental village have good options and multi cuisine.
Average visiting time is about 2-3 hours.

The sky cab was closed for two weeks for their annual maintenance from april 1 - 13. So we did the other things like 6D dinosaur show, lunch at food court and 3d sky dome and 3D art illusion. Some of the staff was very rude and didn't bother to explain things to us.

Hey there! Thank you for your sincere review about Langkawi SkyCab, the steepest cable car ride in the world. Other than the thrilling SkyCab ride, don't miss the chance to be on our magnificent SkyBrigde, the longest free span and curved bridge in the world. Please be informed that the SkyBridge ticket is sold separately at the Top Station where you can make a choice between Nature Trail and SkyGlide. For your information, SkyBridge operation is subject to weather condition and wind speed at SkyBridge. Do give us a call to check on the weather condition here before your arrival. Thanks for your review and hope to see you again soon.

Very reasonable price, fast & efficient set up, sensational views on the way up & at the top. I would recommend a jacket or jumper as it can be very windy, however it was ok when we were there. Lots to do at the oriental village as well.

The main reason we visited Langkawi was to see the Sky bridge. It was shown in many Indian movies and it looked equally awesome in real life.

First, we need to pass through the Oriental Village that contains a number of shops selling various items, souvenirs etc. Then need to buy ticket to board the Sky cab which is a cable car (gondola) ride to the top if the mountain where the Sky bridge is location. The ticket pricing is different for Malaysians and foreigners. As per the ticket package that we buy a corresponding wrist band is put on us.

I would suggest to go for the normal cable car and not choose the glass bottom ones as its not worth the additional price. The cable ride is normal at the beginning but becomes steeper towards the top. It was a bit scary. Up to 6 people are allowed per car, so you may need to share the car with others if you are few in number.

I thing I did not like is they ask you to pose for a photograph which they try to sell to you (hard copy) at an inflated price. Not worth it because its not even a natural photo, they just paste your body in front of a digital background and print it. You can decline the offer and move on.

Once on the sky bridge, you can take a short hike up some stairs to visit another viewing deck. For people with difficulty walking, there is a transfer facility to avoid these stairs ( ticket need to be bought at the bottom in the package)
