The entrance for the Langkawi Cable Car is located in The Oriental Village in the upper northwest of Langkawi Island, near Pantai Kok. As the gondola (cable car) ascends the temperature starts dropping and a windy breeze begins flowing into the cabin through ventilation slits at the top. The ride up to the top station covers a distance of about 2.1 km. On the way, you get a mesmerizing view of the mountain flora, rain forests, valleys, waterfalls and sometimes even wildlife and many types of birds on the ridges. 
On reaching the middle station at a height of 650 meters, you can get off here or alternatively decide to move on to the top station. On both the stations there are viewing platforms to soak in the spectacular sights all around. However, the view from the top station is more breathtaking.
At the top station, there are two viewing platforms, one on the left and the other on the right of the cable car station. There are two short flights of stairs to climb up to the platforms that offer 360° views. On a clear day, one can see the many tiny islands scattered in the Andaman sea down below, the blue waters, towering mountains, caves and overhanging cliff walls in a panoramic setting. From the top, you can also see some parts of Indonesia towards the southwest and Thailand towards the north.
Langkawi Sky Bridge is a magnificent curved suspended bridge, one of the greatest feats of engineering,built on top of the Machinchang Mountain. It was completed in 2004. It is accessible from the Top Station of Langkawi Cable Car.

The sky bridge is 125 meters long and 1.8 meters wide. It is amongst the longest curved pedestrian bridges in the world. It hangs in the space over virgin mountain forest offering spectacular views. At two ends of the bridge there are two triangular platforms which are wider and serve as resting and viewing areas for the tourists.

I had unique combination with having a smallest age member of my family and two senior citizen. So i knew from start that this is going to be very difficult for me and also my infant daughter doesn't eat anything other then some specific food. 

But i was relieved much by the way our Tour Manager Vishal was handling us and the rest of the group. With all his experience and wisdom he gave us the right instructions and with all specific important things to be taken care of be it immigration, check in, lunch sightseeing etc. 

The food part was always very good and with all varieties of food.  My only disappointment was despite of my information while tour booking about my daughter who is only 3 years food necessities like milk, banana, etc was not taken care of I think the cost of these basic small needs was not much and would not have hurt flamingos profit, in fact flamingo could have asked for extra charge which would have borned by me.

My entire family with me enjoyed the tour and the sightseeing very much and I think it's a great team work and extra effort of people like Vishal who make you win our hearts and mind. 

I am attaching some of our pics which I would say is the best tours of my life and flamingo made this happen for us. 

So Congrats to flamingo and special thanks to vishal and Devraj. Devraj was able to convince me for booking the tour at the moment where I had only come for comparison between you and your Competetitors both for cost and features of the tour.
