Last day at Langkawi, so it had to special. Today on the list were the Cable Car and the Sky bridge. The sky bridge at Langkawi is supposed to be the longest free span and curved bridge in the world! So of course, we were excited.
The view from atop the mountain where the cable car ends
Before we could embark on the cable car, we had to go through the entire process of buying the tickets and queuing up for the ride. Thankfully the line was fast moving and we were inside the cable car in about half an hour. However, I would suggest buying the cable car tickets online. The cable ride was very peaceful and I could not stop raving about the beautiful view. It stops at the top of the mountain from where you get a birds eye view of the beaches. We went during the afternoon, but the locals there suggested that going late would also be a great idea as the sunset looks very beautiful from the top.
The sky bridge, constructed in 2005, was a 400 ft long bridge and around 2000 ft above sea level. The walk from the cable car to the bridge is not a pleasant one because there is no walk. There are a couple of steps at the start but the rest of the walk is actually a mini-trek through the mountain. We were lucky to be wearing sports shoes (phew !). Once on the bridge, the view is breath taking . There are also glass patches in the middle of the bridge and in case you are afraid of heights, you can just close your eyes and walk by without stepping on it or be daring enough to walk over it.

Heaven on earth!
