Cable Car - Mount Mat Cincang

Okay, so you've never been to Langkawi if you didn't visit their cable car. We came here the second day but it started to rain, so we went back the day we were going back to Penang. It is really worth the trip and I enjoyed the breath taking view above the steel bridge.

The first cable-car ride took us a few hundred feet up where we saw the green rainforest below. At the side was the Telaga Tujuh Waterfalls. After around 600 meters, the cable car reaches the first station. It was okay but we were really wanting to see the steel bridge.

So, off we went to the second cable car ride. Honestly, I was starting to get anxious but I have to hide this so as not to alarm the 3 kids. After the short ride, we have to go down several staircases. Hmm... and the people going up are all out of breath. This is going to be exciting. The oldest of the 3 children, my 8 yrs old nephew, was the one who is afraid. Oh, my sister and I have to be brave for him. haha..

When we reached the bridge, it has a super magnificent sight of the surrounding horizon - you'll see the sky, island's landscape and the seas. The steel bridge is suspended across Mount Mat Cincang and a neighbouring mountain. Walking on the bridge is a super, duper fantastic experience.

Now, we have to go up the stairs to ride the cable cars. No wonder the people were out of breath. When we got to the cable car, were sweating. We were not prepared for this morning exercise. But it's okay, it was all woth it!!
