Enjoy a bird’s-eye-view of Mount Mat Chinchang and Langkawi with a cable car ride to the mountain’s peak. Journey into an Oriental Village and enjoy shopping before wandering around a stunning nearby lake and taking in mountain scenery.
Take a cable car ride to the top of Mount Mat Chinchang for a birds eye view of Langkawi
This Langkawi cable car ride and oriental village morning tour kicks off with pick up from your hotel. Travel to Mount Mat Chinchang and ascend its peak by cable car. Take in the stunning views of Langkawi and the hillsides down below as you listen to your guide explain how this suspension system is the longest in the world between two stations. Marvel at the fact it was constructed without a single road being laid through the jungle!
From the mountain’s peak, head to the Oriental Village where you’ll enjoy time to wander the shops, engage with locals and sample traditional cuisines for lunch (own expense). At the end of your tour return to your hotel with a camera full of picutres and a mind filled with memories.
Langkawi Skybridge cable car
At 709 meters above sea level, the cable car ride up to Langkawi's second highest peak is truly an experience not to be missed.
Throughout the 20 minutes ride, you will pass over jungle waterfalls and a thick carpet of virgin rainforest. On a clear day, you can see parts of Thailand towards the north and Indonesia towards the south-west.
Travelling at a steep incline of 42 degrees over a distance of 2.2 kilometers from the base station to the two mountain-top stations, even the gentlest breeze is enough to send one's stomach churning. But once you get used to the sensation of being airborne, the ride quickly turns into an amazing, exhilarating experience.
At the foothills of Mt. Machincang, lies the quaint Oriental Village. A collection of more than 50 activity and adventure providers, F&B outlets, souvenir and retail stores, galleries and spas, the Oriental Village offers a quality day-out of fun, adventure, shopping and gastronomic delights at one location!
The same thing was 120 MYR if booked directly. Viator charged us 678 MYR for 3 folks. On top of it they charged 150 MYR for hotel drop and pick up. 5 times the cost is obnoxious. I will never ever buy stuff on Viator.

My mother and I were picked up from our hotel by our friendly tour guide and taken to the Cable Car/Oriental village in the comfort of an air conditioned vehicle. The tour guide was friendly and helpful-providing us with some interesting information about the history and culture of Langkawi along the way. We did get a bit lost when meeting him at the end of the tour which was our fault as we went to the wrong carpark, but he came and found us. He also made recommendations for other activities for us to do in Langkawi and even drove us to Langkawi Geopark where we did a river cruise-and arranged for a taxi to take us back to our hotel afterwards.
The panoramic views from the cable car are breathtaking-this and the oriental village are both must sees if you go to Langkawi. There are several quaint little souvenir shops and eating places in the Oriental Village. Its a great half day tour and I would highly recommend it.
the tour was very good and we really enjoyed, specially the cable car and the 3d paint art museum
my comment that the wjhole tour was terribly expensive i paid for me, wife and two kids about 730 ringit, while the ticket was 55 ringit for the adult, 43 for the kid which makes about 200 ringit, 530 ringit difference just for picking and dropping off the hotel is really too much
this is a rip off, would be better off getting your own taxi and paying for cable car yourself. The driver was not helpful, and provided no information, plus the oriental village is just a bunch of tourist shops selling tat.
The ride itself was amazing, and we were lucky to have timed it so that we rose through the early morning mist into brilliant sunshine at the top.
However, our hotel the Berjaya, was only 10 minutes walk away from the cable car, so hotel pick up was not worth paying for.
The cable car ride is excellent ! The flying bridge experience is excellent too except the temporary access to the bridge which is unsafe and inappropriate ! Again in general over priced compare to actual cost that it would cost you if you do it yourself?
