[Eng] A cable car ride takes visitors to Langkawi's second highest peak of Mount Mac Chinchang, where the view of the surrounding island is simple spectacular. On clear days, visitors can also see parts of Thailand towards the North and Indonesia towards the South-West. The cable car ride up the hill takes about 20 minutes. Enjoy great views of the hillside flora, waterfall and occasional glimpses of the wildlife and birds. 


[Eng] Complete in 2004, this suspended pedestrian bridge is located at the top of the Mac Chinchang mountain and forms part of the Gunung Mac Chinchang Geo-Eco Tourism Park master plan. Suspended from a record-breaking 82m high single pylon, the curve bridge intersects a dramatic geological chasm up to 100m above ground, swinging 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 perspectives that reinvent themselves, as one proceeds along it.    

[Eng] Measuring 125m in lenght, this structure ranks among the world's longest curved pedestrian bridges and constructing it was no easy feat as the solution had to amalgamate 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 up to the mountain by helicopter, and was subsequently assembled to its position.
