The basics

Whether you ascend Mt. Machinchang in the Langkawi Cable Car, with sweeping views over many of the Langkawi archipelago’s 99 islands, or hike along trails such as the one from Seven Wells Waterfall (Telaga Tujuh Waterfall), you’ll likely land up at the Panorama Langkawi complex. Besides the Sky Bridge, enjoy stores, eateries, a 3D trick art gallery, and a range of cinema experiences, including a “6D” extravaganza—or simply capture a selfie amid the spectacular views.
