Feel the world below your feet. See eagles and birds passing by. Go flighty as the cloud. A ride on the Langkawi cable car sets you on a journey of discovery of nature from above. Capture the aeriel views of cascading waterfalls, dense verdant rainforests as well as Thailand towards the north and Indonesia towards the south-west in a 20-minute ride of Langkawi Cable Car that seems like riding on a red carpet of Aladdin.
