Langkawi Sky Bridge Cable Car

Taking a ride on a cable car and then walking along the magnificent Sky Bridge is one of the best experiences to be had in Langkawi. So, if you’re touring through the area, here’s everything you need to know about this fantastic attraction.

Reaching the Cable Car

The cable car ride will take you up to a height of 2,300 feet above sea level! To take this ride, you’ll first have to reach the Oriental Village located on the northwest of Langkawi Island. If you’re staying at a prominent Langkawi resort– for example, the Berjaya Langkawi Resort – this should only take you a few minutes. The ride up can be a bit windy and chilly, so dress appropriately!

Riding to the Bridge

The ride up begins at the Oriental Village, and after a few minutes of gradual ascension, the cable car will begin to level out. From here, you’ll be treated to spectacular views of far-off mountain ranges and gorgeous waterfalls. The ride stops at the Sky Bridge where the grandest view awaits!

The View

The view from the Sky Bridge is truly breath-taking. The surrounding mountain ranges and forests combined with the cool mountain air will envelop you in a relaxing sense of tranquillity. You can walk along the bridge and reach the ‘forest deck’ for an even better view of the surroundings.

Photo Ops

Be sure to bring your camera along for the ride as there’s plenty of fantastic photo opportunities up here. The surrounding area is home to a myriad of endemic bird varieties, so be sure to keep your eyes peeled and your camera ready!

Island Hopping

Island hopping is one of the most popular activities to do in Langkawi. So much so, that pretty much all major Langkawi resort hotels will include it on their itinerary list – for example, the Berjaya Langkawi Resort. Here you’ll be travelling from one tropical paradise to another, exploring white sand beaches and mystical caves along the way.

Exploring the Mangroves

The area that surrounds the Langkawi beach is full of dense mangrove forests. This is a refuge for a variety of unique plants and animals that aren’t found anywhere else in Malaysia. By hiring a boat and a guide you can go on safari here and experience this fascinating ecosystem first-hand.

Going Snorkelling

It’s no surprise that the azure blue waters that lap away at the Langkawi beaches hide a vast reef of vibrant corals just waiting to be explored. There are even artificial reefs that have formed around old shipwrecks that are now teeming with life. So, grab your gear and go snorkelling if you’re ever here!

Reaching the Highest Peaks

Not every one of Langkawi’s attractions is centred around the Ocean – the Gunung Raya is the region’s highest peak and makes for an excellent hiking trip. The way up to the peak takes you through the dense rainforest that is full of vibrant characters like leaf monkeys and cheery songbirds. If you keep your eyes peeled you might even catch a glimpse of the majestic great hornbill!

Explore the highest peak in Langkawi

If you’re looking to explore destinations in Langkawi, make sure you add Gunung Raya to your list! Here’s some more information for those interested.

The legend

The locals believe that Langkawi was once home to a band of giants and that certain peaks were formed as a result of a fight between two giants, who turned to stone as lightning struck from heaven. A brawl broke out between Mat Cincang and Mat Raya at their kids’ wedding – and another third and peaceful giant Mat Sawar tried to stop them. The highest mountain; Gunung Raya, represents Mat Gunung.

The mountain

Gunung Raya has an altitude of 881 meters, making it the highest mountain in the whole of Langkawi. Located in central Langkawi, the entire mountain is covered with a dense rainforest that is full of flora and fauna. The forest area covers over 5000 hectares.

Getting there

You can reach the top either through a car or trek all the way up. If you opt for the latter, you’ll have to climb up 4287 stairs. Remember, the weather in Langkawi is extremely humid so as you leave Berjaya Langkawi Resort or any of the other Langkawi resorts you’re based at, make sure you pack plenty of water and wear suitable clothing.


Pulau Payar Marine park Langkawi

Langkawi, also known as the Jewel of Kedah, is definitely one of the most beautiful tropical landscapes in the world, and consists of 104 islands situated off the North-West of Malaysia.


Background to Pulau Payar Marine Park

The park actually consists of four islands, which are Payar, Lembu, Kaca, and Segantang. These islands are renowned for their biodiversity, and were eventually integrated to form a unified marine sanctuary. Payar is the largest of the islands, and contains the Marine Park Centre.

Aquatic Activities

If you’re into snorkelling or scuba diving then there’s no better place in Langkawi to indulge in these activities. The best dive/snorkel site of the park is Coral Garden but unfortunately that area is currently closed to the public in order to preserve the coral.

Hiking Trails

If you do not wish to get yourself wet then the best thing for you to do would be to tackle one of the many hiking trails that are available throughout the park. This is a great way to explore the beautiful sights that the islands have to offer on the surface.

Getting to the Park

The park can easily be accessed by boat or catamaran, so if you’re residing in many of the hotels Langkawi has to offer such as Berjaya Langkawi Resort, you won’t have any trouble getting to the park.

Langkawi is an archipelago that features more than a hundred different islands. The main island, also named Langkawi, was given the status of ‘World Geopark’ by UNESCO. The status of geopark is misinterpreted by many, but the title is only given to a place of scientific importance in regards to archaeological, scientific, ecological and cultural reasons as well. These islands have become a renowned tourism destination and there is an incredible amount of eco-friendly things to do in Langkawi as well as a range of hotels and resorts to choose from such as the Berjaya Langkawi Resort.

One of the best points that garnered Langkawi’s reputation as a geopark are the various rock formations that are to be seen. These formations are in turn surrounded by dense jungle, which hasn’t changed much in more than a million years. An immense load of the flora found in the geopark is exclusive to Langkawi. The Mangrove Rivers that snake through the Langkawi landscape contain an abundance of exotic life, ranging from aquatic creatures to various species of birds.

The MachinChang Mountains are one of the most notable aspects about the geopark. These rock formations are ancient, and were formed more than five-hundred-million years ago. This mountain range was the very first section of what is now South East Asia, to rise from under the oceans. The oldest section of this formation is Teluk Datai.

The Dayang Bunting Geopark is the second largest island of the entire chain. The island is famous for a massive lake that is situated in the heart of the dense forest. The lake was the result of a colossal limestone cave that collapsed. The lake is regarded as a spiritual place due the legend associated with it, where a divine maiden buried her dead child here and blessed the lake with fertility.

If you’re looking for a breath-taking voyage into nature, then Langkawi is a definitely a place worth thinking about.
