Duration

The journey to the top of the mountain and vice versa will usually take about 15 minutes (excluding queuing time).

SkyCab

The Base Station is conveniently located on foothill of the Machincang mountain. From here, visitors will be taken up to the cool Machincang mountain via the cablecar system. The ride will be an exhilarating experience for everyone to enjoy. You will also be able to catch a glimpse of the flora and fauna that surrounds the area.

An intermediate cablecar station on the eastern ridges provides the much desired access to the eastern cliffs with its 3 vertical chimneys and the beautiful 360-degree views. For the first time, visitors would be able to observe at close range the unique geological formations of the Machincang range, which was formed around 450 million years ago.

The journey from the Base Station to Middle Station will cover 1,700 meters in distance and upon reaching the Middle Station at an elevation of 650m above sea level, visitors will be able to alight and walk up to the viewing platforms. Visitors will enjoy panoramic view of the main island as well as the many surrounding islands. They will also be able to observe at close range the unique flora on the ridges and the forested valley between the Middle Station and the Top Station.

A short walk up the stairs from the Top Station will take visitors to the two viewing platforms at the top of Machincang mountain. Visitors will be amazed at the unfolding dramatic views from the platforms, the many unique and exciting features of Machincang, are dominating rock tower peaks providing spectacular 360 degrees panoramic views of the Langkawi islands and Southern Thailand as well as dramatic views of the deep chasms, overhangs cliff walls, isolated pinnacles and some caves. Such nature monuments are seldom seen anywhere else in this combination except in Langkawi.

The overruling height of Machincang mountain, its commanding views over Langkawi, the western sea coast, and the dramatic views over the funnel with its staggered rock blocks will make the visitors wonder in amazement and bring the visitors so close to nature that they can practically touch it.

SkyBridge

Completed in 2004, this suspended bridge is built on top of the Machinchang mountain. Accessible from the Top Station, the bridge is suspended from a 82m high single pylon and hangs at about 100m above ground. It swings out over the landscape to give visitors a unique spatial experience, and to bring them into otherwise unattainable locations, above virgin jungle with spectacular views. Notably, in contrast to a straight bridge, where the end is always monotonously in sight, a curved bridge offers spectacularly changing perspective that reinvent themselves, as one proceeds along it.

Measuring at 125m in length, the structure ranks among the world’s longest curve suspension bridge and constructing it was not an easy feat as the solutions had to factor the following critical elements; structural balancing from a single point (top of the pylon), optimal weight management and load distribution, pre-fabrication of bridge and on site installation. The entire bridge, in all its elements had to be lifted to the top of the mountain by helicopter and was later assembled to its current position.

NOTE: The SkyBridge is currently closed until further notice

SkyTrail

Take a step forward to enjoy the pristine uniqueness of Mount Machinchang from the middle station of our SkyCab. Over here you would have the privilege to walk through our nature trek which is synonymously known as our SkyTrail.

Engage with our licensed nature guide and learn a few things about the birthplace of South East Asia where it existed for more than 500 million years ago.  It can be a fruitful learning experience about the fauna and flora of our sandstone forest, various rock samples or simply be awed by the view from a few lookout points.

This interpretative walk can be done with light clothing and casual footwear. For experienced trekkers it can be considered as a walk in the park where for beginners it is a thrilling mini adventure. Our Skytrail or our guided tour is definitely a must do for an enhanced experience that would add more value to your stay in Langkawi. It is an approach to immerse yourself as one with Mother Nature and human touch which says “Naturally Langkawi”.
