Reviewed December 7, 2012

The views on a clear day are great, it's not that expensive, and the clouds over Langkawi are worth seeing from this height at all costs.

“Brilliant Views, Long Queues”
Reviewed December 5, 2012

We queued for about an hour but it was worth the wait, there are fans inside so you are cooled down from the heat. The views were fantastic & we got some superb photo's. Well worth the visit, I think it was roughly £6 each to get the cable car.

“A must see”
Reviewed December 5, 2012

If you are on Langkawi and don't go on the cable car then you will miss both a thrilling (and really steep) cable car ride - and the best view of the island imaginable.
It's a 2 stage journey and the view from the mid station is impressive enough, but it's even better from the top.
We had an extra thrill on the way down. The motors stopped and all cars were stranded for about 10 minutes. I wouldn't say we panicked but we were certainly relieved when we started moving again.
By the way, it's more than just a cable car. There's also plenty of shops/attractions at the base.

“Amazing Breathtaking View”
Reviewed December 3, 2012

A trip to Langkawi is definitely not complete without a trip on the Cable car.The view is simple amazing. But be warn, that there might be TOO much people for you to comprehend.
