Langkawi 2011 - Langkawi Cable Car

One of the things you shouldn't miss in Langkawi is to take the cable car up Gunung Machinchang, one of the tallest mountains on the Island. There is always a long queue for the ride, but it moves quick fast and we waited around 45 min for our turn. The round trip fare for adult is RM 30 and for kids RM 20. Malaysians get a special discount on presentation of ID card.

The ride up is quite steep and not for the faint-hearted.

The ride stops at a mid station where you can hop out and take a look around. I recommend that you go right up to the top station where views are spectacular. 

Due to erratic wind conditions, sometimes the cable car ride is suspended for safety reasons. We went in the morning and were told that wind speeds were too high and the service was suspended for at least a few hours. Luckily it was operational in the afternoon. It may be inconvenient to have to go back, but it is good to know that they do take safety matters seriously.
