Hello friends in TE,
The Cable Car system is a tourist attraction for Langkawi and is located at the Oriental Village, a theme shopping centre housed in 30’s individually designed buildings showcasing Malaysian and Oriental architecture.
The attraction located on the southwestern coast of the main island of Langkawi, is just a 30 minutes drive from Kuah town and 15 minutes drive from Langkawi International Airport. This image was captured above the top station overlooking the middle station.
An intermediate Cable Car station on the eastern ridges provides the much desired access to the eastern cliffs with its 3 vertical chimneys and the beautiful 360-degree views. For the first time, visitors would be able to observe at close range the unique rock formations geological features of the Machincang range, which was formed 500 million years ago during the Cambrian period, in geological terms.
The journey from the Base Station to Middle Station will cover 1,700 meters in length and upon reaching the Middle Station at an elevation of 650m above sea level, visitors will be able to alight and walk up to the viewing platforms.
Visitors will enjoy panoramic view of the main island as well as the many surrounding islands. They will also be able to observe at close range the unique flora on the ridges and the forested valley between the Middle Station and the Top Station. After enjoying the beautiful view, visitors will then board back the gondolas, which will take them another 450 meters up to the Top Station.
A short walk up the stairs from the Top Station will take visitors to the two (2) viewing platforms at the top of Gunung Machincang, the climax of the trip. Visitors will be amazed at the unfolding dramatic views from the platforms, the many unique and exciting features of Machincang, are dominating rock tower peaks providing spectacular 360-degree panoramic views of the Langkawi islands, Kedah and Southern Thailand as well as dramatic views of the deep chasms, overhangs cliff walls, isolated pinnacles and some caves. Such nature monuments are seldom seen anywhere else in this combination except in Langkawi.
The over-ruling height of Gunung Machincang (708m), its commanding views over Langkawi, the western sea-coast, and the dramatic views over the funnel with its staggered rock blocks will make the visitors wonder in amazement and bring the visitors so close to nature that they can practically touch it!
A cafe at the Top Station offers delicious refreshments and unbeatable views with refreshing cool breezes, which allow visitors to enjoy Sunsets at 708m above sea-level is about 5 degrees (+/-) cooler than lowlands.
Thanks for viewing!

nice the panoramic view of the place with the stairs to lead to the Top station of the Cable car system.The view from over there during the movement of the cable car must be a great and unique experience.

Un cadrage efficace pour donner les sensations ressenties à utiliser cet escalier qui ne manque pas de charme.
Quant à l'environnement : superbe et majestueux.

Nice perspective here from Langkawi. The view from top enables us to see the beautiful surrounding.But I think the large white in between slightly distracts the otherwise exciting view. A lot of thanks for the nice picture.

I like the distorted fisheye effect, & the broad sweeping curves, meandering around the screen. Good sharpness & a pleasant bg view as an adjunct. Tfs!
