    The Langkawi Sky Bridge was built in 2003 and was finished in 2004 taking 12 months from August to August to build. The parts were carried to the top of the mountain via helicopter and then later assembled together. The curved bridge measures 125m in length and hangs about 100m above ground level. It is accessible from the Top Station, the bridge is suspended from a 82m high single pylon and it can accommodate up to 250 people at the same time.

    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 you proceed along it.

    SkyGlide is a cabin type of transport that can move upward and downward according to a certain incline level. In, general, the design of the cabin is like an elevator with the finishing of glass panels on all sides. This is to allow visitors to have a clear view of mount Machincang and its surroundings. Currently visitor who wish to visit SkyBridge will have to take a short 10 minutes’ walk through a jungle trail.

    This short walk is both fun but a bit challenging especially to the elderly and children. So with SkyGlide visitors would have a much faster and convenient way of visiting SkyBridge. Should you wish to take the SkyTrail down to the SkyBridge and the SkyGlide up to the SkyCab, you can purchase your one way ticket as the SkyGlide booth.

    The SkyTrail is a lovely nature walk in which you can take a step forward to enjoy the natural uniqueness of Mount Machinchang from Top Station to the Base Station Langkawi SkyCab. Here you will have the privilege to walk through our nature synonymous track known as SkyTrail. If you don’t fancy doing the whole walk you can also take a shorter route to the Middle Station before getting the SkyCab back down to the bottom.
