Of course, ropeway (Cable Car) and suspension bridge (Sky Bridge) should be included indispensable item in the program of your stay on the island as it is one of the most spectacular entertainment and iconic sights. The famous suspension bridge can be seen on most covers of guidebooks on the island as one of his characters, along with a statue of an eagle.

It was immediately clear, explain that the suspended Sky bridge located on the top of the mountain where the cable car and you can get there only on her. Therefore, these two attractions are visited only together, and in no other way, although the bridge and paid extra.

Cable car with closed doors from the station, located in the East village Langkawi will take you up to a height of 708 meters and a distance of 2.1 miles in 20 minutes. This cable car holds the record of the "coolest" in the world, in the sense that the angle of ascent is the steepest, is 42 degrees. Upstairs you will discover a breathtaking view from two observation decks (there is also an observation deck a bit of a lower transfer station) for the whole island and the archipelago. In good weather you can even see the coast of Thailand and, as they say here, even Indonesia, which, however, is very doubtful. On the observation deck there is a simple cafe, drinks, toilet.

When you'll see enough on the observation deck, you can go for a curved suspension bridge Skybridge. To with road, have a little walk down the stairs, but the route is short and available to anyone. If you don't want to walk to a surcharge (15 ringgit), you can go up and down in the cockpit. The entrance to the bridge is charged 5 ringgit.

This suspension bridge is an amazing engineering structure. It is located at an altitude of 700 meters and at a length of 125 meters is suspended by cables on only one support. The bridge also offers spectacular views, but the jungle and the surrounding mountains. The bridge is really located in the sky (Sky bridge – a bridge in the sky or heavenly bridge), and sometimes hides tourists in the clouds.

Tips for visiting:

To visit the bridge and the cable car is best in good weather, otherwise the views will be hidden behind the clouds. If you are not lucky, and while you climb up, the weather turned bad, you can wait as bad weather in Langkawi quickly replaced good. Keep in mind that upstairs is cooler about 5 degrees. To get to the cable car, have to stand quite a large queue, which is, even in low season. To avoid queues, you need to come here early in the morning opening or near sunset, after 16 hours, or buy advance tickets at the official website by a certain time. You can also purchase the Express Line ticket, which will give the right to pass the gate without waiting in line, but it costs twice more expensive than usual.
