Langkawi Cable Car

The forest below is lush and beautiful, and out to your right you’ll see the Seven Wells Waterfalls.  Further along to your left you’ll see another attractive waterfall. On clear days you’ll even see the beach and the Skybridge. All these spectacular views for only 30 ringgit!

Located within the Oriental Village near Pantai Kok, the Cable Car is something that just cannot be missed on a visit to Langkawi in Malaysia.

The total length of the cable car ride is 2.2 kilometres (1.4 miles) and it reaches an elevation of 708 metres above sea level.

Kieron Turner visited not too long ago and writes in this article that although for those with a fear of heights this ride is slightly terrifying to begin with, the views as you make your way up are tremendous.

If you’re visiting from Pantai Cenang or elsewhere on the island, a day trip to this part of Langkawi is highly recommended as there are several attractions located in the nearby area that are worth checking out, like the Oriental Village, an Asian-themed shopping village at the foothills of Mt. Machincang and the Seven Wells Waterfalls.
