Langkawi Sky Bridge

An engineering marvel, this suspended pedestrian bridge swings out over Langkawi's second highest mountain, Gunung Mat Cincang providing otherwise impossible views of the mountain's texture and surrounding jungle. The bridge's wonder lies in the single 82-meter-high pylon from which the 125-meter-long bridge curves out around the mountain, 100 meters above the ground.

Langkawi Sky Bridge is one of the world's longest curved suspension bridges. It's dynamic contour provides changing perspectives of the nearby ocean, islands, mountains, and valleys as you walk along its length. Keep an eye out for Thailand's Tarutao Island in the distance, clearly visible on sunny days when facing north. Visitors can stand on a transparent Perspex floor panel to get extra close to nature and appreciate the dizzying height of the bridge.

The Sky Bridge can only be reached by taking Langkawi Sky Cab to the top station and purchasing a separate ticket. Depending on your ticket type, take the glass encased funicular, Sky Glide, straight down to the bridge entrance, or walk 150 meters down the mountain, keeping an eye peeled for birdlife and monkeys amongst the trees.

Insider Tips For Langkawi Sky Bridge

  • Sky Bridge tickets can only be purchased from a booth at the Sky Cab top station (cash only). The booth is on the left as you exit the sky cab.
  • Standard Sky Bridge tickets include a "nature walk" where visitors must walk 150m down steep steps through the humid jungle. The walk takes 10-15 minutes down and 15-20 minutes up, however it is more strenuous than it sounds. Alternatively, purchase a Sky Glide ticket for RM11 (USD$2.58) to ride a small glass funicular straight to the bridge entrance. Only a limited number of people can ride the Sky Glide at a time and queues are long during busy periods. Assess the length of the Sky Glide line before choosing your option. If you choose the nature walk down, a 1-way Sky Glide ticket can be purchased for RM6 (USD$1.41) per person to avoid climbing the steep steps back to the Top Station.
  • The Sky Bridge can accommodate 200 visitors at a time.

Backstory

Langkawi Sky Bridge was officially opened to the public on February 27th 2005, following a 12-month-long construction period. The bridge's construction presented several challenges including transporting materials and prefabricated elements to the mountaintop by helicopter, optimal weight management and load distribution, and structural balancing from the one single point - the tip of the pilon.

The bridge featured in 2006 Bollywood movie "Don: The Chase Begins Again".

Etiquette

Do:
  • Remove shoes before standing on a Perspex floor panel to avoid scratching it.
  • Make room for other visitors to pass by. The bridge is quite narrow.
  • Walk calmly and in an organized manner along the bridge. Try to be sensitive to other guests who may feel uncomfortable with heights.
  • Wait patiently in line for the next available Sky Glide.
  • Take your time on the nature walk and drink plenty of water.
Don't:
  • Spit or throw objects over the bridge.
  • Lean over or sit on the bridge's edge.
  • Run or jump on the bridge or cause it to shake in any other way.

Scorecard

Best Parts:
  • Cheap entrance tickets compared to other attractions within the complex.
  • Engineering marvel suspended from a single pion.
  • Incredible views over the sea and rainforest that change perspectives as you move along the bridge's curve.
Could Be Better:
  • Crowded Sky Glide and long wait for the privilege of being crammed in like sardines.
  • Hot and humid nature walk with steep steps to climb back to the top station.
  • Only accessible via cable car which is quite expensive.
