Langkawi Attraction: Langkawi Cable Car Want to see an expansive view amidst the breathtaking jungle terrain of Langkawi? SkyCab provides that visceral experience for thrill seekers and those with a penchant for nature. With mountains of rock that date back to 550 million years, SkyCab is located at the oldest terrain of Southeast Asia. See both ancient sea and estuary steeped in history as you unravel the magic with each rising step.    Located conveniently at the foothill of the Machincang mountain, the Base Station is your first point of interest as you ascend to the top. From this point, visitors will be brought up to the cooling mountains of Machincang through the cable car system. Soak in the sprawling views of the bustling nature beneath as you enjoy the cool mountain breeze. With a thriving flora and fauna ecosystem that surrounds the area, every moment is truly but a treat for the senses. The cable car station on the Eastern hill offers access to the eastern cliffs with 3 vertical chimneys and gorgeous 360-degree views. The ride from the Base to Middle Station will span across 1,700 metres in distance and upon alighting at the Middle Station at an elevation of 650m above sea level, visitors can disembark and continue the journey up to the viewing stations. Enjoy sweeping views of Langkawi and the many surrounding islands beneath. If that wasn’t enough, you may also explore the forested valleys that are neatly tucked between the Middle and Top Stations.   A quick stroll up the stairs of the Top Station at a height of 708m above sea level will take visitors to double viewing platforms located at the peak of Machincang mountain. Be in awestruck as you soak in the breathtaking views from the platforms, where picturesque rock tower peaks provide 360 degrees of panoramic views of the Langkawi islands and Southern Thailand. Watch as overhead cliff walls, deep chasms and isolated pinnacles provide a much needed respite amidst sheer heights. Take delight in such moments as this combination of delights are seldom seen anywhere else apart from Langkawi.   Just A Short Journey Away Keen on journeying into the upper reaches of Langkawi?
