Incredible cable car ride

The cable car ride up the mountain offers an incredible and breathtaking view of the sea as well as the green mountains.

ITS BREATH TAKING VIEW
Aug 2020
It is very thrilling and breath taking when you are on top of Gnung Mat Cincang. Taking the sky-bridge is most thrilling. It is similar like the one in Jungfraujoch Switzerland minus the climate!

Get high and love the nature
Nov 2019 • Friends
One of the must visit place in langkawi. Gunung Mat Cincang gives a different kind of experience of exploring the nature. You can either go on jungle walk or you can get a ride using the cable car to the top of the mountain.

Visit once is enough
Jan 2020
everything requires a fee
cable car ride : RM40 with some miscellaneous entrance access to 3d museum, dome, etc.
entrance to skybridge: RM6 on foot, automated ride RM10++

Nice view, but just too many fees but guess that's how they recover their ROI

Tough and extremely challenging hike
Jan 2020 • Couples
Forget the distance of the hike - the challenge is the extremely steep incline. We’re relative fit people and it pushed us to our limits.
Probably should have left much earlier than we did. Started at 1pm and took just over 2hrs to reach the start of the peak. In the extremely hot summer weather we decided to call it a day just prior to the summit - it was way too hot without shade and we’d already powered through 2 litres of water each.
Great views from the top but be prepared to scramble and pull yourself over rocks for much of the way.
If we did it again we’d bring over 3 litres of water and start much much earlier.
Disappointed that we saw no wildlife during our 5 hours on this trek. Just a few bats but no monkeys, despite all the signs there were even none at the Seven Wells.

A tough hike
Jan 2020
Hiked up here (not the peak with the cable car but the peak you need to hike up and down). It was really amazing BUT:

It hadnt rained for days when we did it and thus almost no insects and stones weren’t slippery.

I run 8 miles in under an hour 5 times a week and this hike was really exhausting.

Make sure to start you ascend not later than 9:30 as otherwise the heat will fry you.

Right now jan 2020 the hiking trail is in a bad shape. It often felt more like a climb than a hike.

Take at least 2 liters of water per person with you.

You need to be fit and not afraid of heights. Only very few people hike up here. We met in total six people during our ascend and descend.

Took us 2:10h to get up and nearly the same time to get down (due to the bad shape of the track getting down is actually challenging).

It was super rewarding to swim in the waterfall wells once we finished the hike/climb.

If i would have known how hard this one will be i would have probably passed on this. Still made it but it was challenging for a fit person.

Such great views of the island
Sep 2019
It is a bit expensive, but I recommend taking the 4 in 1 ticket to the cable car that includes 3 more activities at the base Oriental village such as 4d cinema or the 3d art museum !

Leeches Scared Us Away
Sep 2019
We attempted this hike in September during rainy season. Within ten minutes of starting we had picked ten leeches off us and saw even more leeches in the forest so we decided to turn back. Maybe it would be better in the dry season but not recommended in rainy season unless you do not mind leeches. It was also foggy so the visibility would not have been great for the views. Bad timing on our part.

Challenging but fun hike
Jul 2019 • Friends
Although the mountain isn't very tall, this hike is actually extremely challenging especially after the u-turn sign where the inclines get extremely steep and you have to make use of the ropes to help yourselves up. There are also certain short intervals where there are no ropes for support and you have to hold on tightly to rocks or trees to climb from rope to rope. Good news is, the hike in the initial stage is relatively simple. Do take note that should you try to hike after rainfall, the routes may not be easy to find due to fallen trees. Thus, it is recommended you download the app MAPS.ME since the app has a map of this particular hiking route. There are also red markers tied to trees and signs along the easy part of the hiking route so as long as you follow the markers, you wouldn't get lost. It is also recommended you wear compression tights, tight fitting long sleeved shirts and thick long socks for the hike as there are many leeches in the forest. I would also recommend anyone who wants to try the hike to be properly attired in proper hiking boots and gloves so that you get more grip climbing up and down the mountain, especially since the rocks and the steep inclines near the top can cause you to slip down really easily.
