  • 34Langkawi Sky Bridge

    Hold your breath because Langkawi Sky Bridge is the longest (410 feet) free span bridge in the world, suspended from an altitude of 82 meter by a single Pylon and is 2, 300 feet above the ground. Unlike any other straight bridge, the sky bridge is curved so as to give the tourists a better and more spectacular perspective of the view below - a total blood thumping expedition. The bridge was first constructed in the ground and was then lifted by air through helicopters to its final pylon.



     Highlight: View of unclaimed and unexplored parts of the island, the tropical jungles and the pristine mountain Mat Cincang. Yes, it is definitely a photographer’s delight. To reach the skybridge you will have to board a cable car from the cliff. On the way to the top, you will witness the second largest peak, Telaga Tuluj.

     Location: Ascent from Oriental Village near Pantai Kok

     Price: RM 5.00 for adults and RM 3.00 for children
