Langkawi Cable Car: From the Bottom

Near the resort there was a cable car going up to one of the hills.  It started in Oriental Village, which had a small hotel and a number of shops and restaurants.  The cable car goes up to Langkawi' second highest mount at 708m.  The ride is 2.2km long.

The building in front was the ground station of the cable car.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Taken from the village this shows the route up a little more clearly.  There is one platform at the top of the centre peak and then a second higher one on the hill above the first pylon.  The cars take a left turn as you go up.

 

It is a fifteen minute ride all the way up.
