Mount Mat Chincang is located on northeastern of Langkawi Island, Kedah, Malaysia. Based on the legendary story, Mat Raya and Mat Chincang is a family of two giants who inhabited the island of Langkawi a long time ago. There is a fight between them over a ruined wedding party.

Now, Mat Raya and Mat Chinchang have been turned into a rock known as Mount Raya and Mount Mat Chinchang. Mat Sawar is trying to mediate to solve this dispute has turned into a hill separating the two mountains.



To go to the top of the Mount Mat Chincang, you have to ride a cable car. To avoid disappointing,please check the maintenance schedule for closure at their website before your visit.



Here you can buy the ticket. A ticket fare for adult is RM30.00 and child is RM15.00. To avoid a long queue, please come early. I came about 11.00am and luckily I don’t have to wait for a long queue. If there is a school trip or a tourist group, then maybe there is a long wait before your turn.



Wait for your turn here.



Each car can fit about six people inside. There is no air conditioning inside the cable car. What you have is only a fresh air from the mountain.

Now, let’s climb to the Mount Mat Chincang.

You can feel that the Sky Bridge is shaking if there is a strong wind.



While we are enjoying the spectacular view, suddenly the cable cars stop working. Instead of worried how to going down and wait for a long queue, we just continue enjoying much more time at the Sky Bridge and the nature.
