Genting Skyway Cable Car Ride, Genting Highlands, Malaysia

As parents, we are constantly looking for things to do with our kids, especially during the school holidays. Our kids love the great outdoors, though sometimes Malaysia's extremely hot weather can be prohibitive for such activities. That is why places like Genting Highlands and Cameron Highlands is ideal due to its cooler temperatures. :)

Up at Gohtong Jaya,we first took our kids for strawberry picking, followed by a visit to the lavender farm and vegetable farm. After lunch, we decided to take our kids on the Genting Skyway for a cable car ride up to Genting Highlands. Baby C has been on the cable car a couple of years back, but this is Baby D's first time, so he was really excited!

From Gohtong Jaya to the Genting Highlands station, it cost us RM12 per person for a return ride. Not cheap, but it's a great experience for the kids. The ride takes about 11 minutes each way (3.38km) and each gondola can fit up to 8 pax. The weather was clear on our way up but on the way down, it was really foggy and it started to drizzle too. The kids enjoyed the scenery as well as waving to the passengers on other gondolas ;) The inquisitive Baby D, as usual had lots of questions for us about how everything worked.

A worthwhile experience for the kids :)


Operating Hours: 7.30am – 12.00 midnight daily

Price: RM12 return, RM6 one way. Children below 90cm ride for free.

Location: Gohtong Jaya Skyway Station, 69000 Genting Highlands, Pahang Darul Makmur. Malaysia.
