Langkawi Cable Car (Langkawi SkyCab) Tours

Langkawi Cable Car (Langkawi SkyCab)
Formally known as Langkawi SkyCab, the Langkawi Cable Car takes riders high above the Langkawi rain forest on Mt. Mat Cincang (Gunung Mat Cincang) for a panoramic view of the surrounding islands and sea. It boasts Malaysia’s longest free span mono-cable car—at 3,117 feet (950 meters)—and is among the steepest on the planet.

The Basics
The Langkawi Cable Car is a great way to orient yourself upon arrival on Langkawi Island. The top station, which sits 2,323 feet (708 meters) above sea level, offers 360-degree views over the island and southern Thailand. Some tours to the cable car also include a visit to the Oriental Village or Telaga Tujuh Waterfalls, or an afternoon of island-hopping around Langkawi.

Things to Know Before You Go
  • The cable car ride is a must-do for all first-time visitors to Langkawi Island.
  • If lines are long, plan to skip the middle station to save time waiting in line.
  • Don’t forget to bring sunscreen, sunglasses, and a hat.
  • The base station offers food concessions, bathrooms, and a prayer room.
  • Langkawi SkyCab is accessible to wheelchair users.

How to Get There
The easiest way to reach the Langkawi Cable Car is to hire a taxi; it’ll cost only a bit extra to have the driver wait while you enjoy the views.

When to Get There
For the best photos (meaning good light and fewer tourists), plan to arrive early—check the website for hours of operation—and be one of the first to board the cable car. Avoid visiting on local holidays or school vacations when Malaysian families turn out in droves. 

Panorama Langkawi
The Langkawi Cable Car is part of the larger Panorama Langkawi. The two most popular attractions, in addition to the cable car, are the SkyGlide funicular and the Langkawi SkyBridge, a curved pedestrian bridge suspended about 328 feet (100 meters) above the surrounding forest.

Awesome Tour Company!

We booked the glass bottom which included the express pass and it was worth the extra few bucks. If you don't want to wait on lines and short on time definitely get the express pass or you can be on line for hours! We placed the order through viator the morning prior so it was a bit late but the company Asni Tours & Travel came through and emailed the confirmation info later that evening. They were also very easy to communicate with via whatsapp.
