Genting Skyway

The final part of the journey up Genting Highlands involve taking the cable-car.  The cable car journey is scenic and takes about 15 minutes. The cost of the cable car is usually included in the price you pay for the entire package. There are very long queues during weekends and public holidays.

The cable car station (above photo) is situated at Goh Tong Jaya, a mid hill station just 15 minutes from Genting. This cable car is what we called Genting Skyway.

Each cable car can carry a maximum of 6 adult passengers. When Genting Skyway is non-operational, visitors can board the other Awana Skyway. Operation Hours: Sun - Fri 7:30am to 11pm Sat 7:30am to 2am Single journey: RM4 Return ticket: RM8

This is an inexpensive and convenient way of reaching the Genting hill top. The ride offers an unparallel panoramic view of the rainforest. Because of the high altitude, the spiraling ride by bus instead can be rather uncomfortable to people who are susceptible to motion sickness.

The upper station is located at Highland Hotel
