The park also houses lush greenery - fruit trees, plants of numerous types and bright flowers. These attract nature lovers and make the park worth some exploration.Also a good picnic spot, the park can be walked through or one can hire a buggy to cart across the park. Moreover, the park exhibits Malaysian handicrafts made of local objects and artisans that can be taken as souvenirs for friends and family back home.
Hanging at a height of 2,170 feet between the two mountains, Langkawi Sky Bridge is counted among the longest cable-stayed bridges in the world. It stretches itself for 410 feet and has transparent sections on its pedestrian. These transparent sections not only let people enjoy the spectacular beauty of the surroundings but also the dense tropical forest underneath.Situated on the peak of the second tallest mountain Mt. Mat Cincang on Pulau Langkawi, one can reach here with the help of the cable car ride. Starting at the ‘end’ of the cable car ride, you can hop on to the bridge after a 15 minutes walk from the dropping point. You must reach the place as early as possible as the bridge could accommodate only 200 people at one time.Do not forget to bring your camera to capture all the picturesque scenes around you through the transparent windows of the cable car and from the parapet of the bridge. If it is the right season, then you may even catch the glimpse of the unique flora and fauna possessed by the island. However, do not miss the nearby restaurants around the sky bridge along with all the places and things you could grab on!
