At the peak of Gunung Mat Cincang (Mat Cincang Mountain) on the island of Langkawi, sits the 125-metre Langkawi Sky Bridge. It is a curved pedestrian cable-stayed bridge. The deck of the suspended bridge is located 660 metres above sea level.

The Langkawi Sky Bridge was completed in 2005. It can be reached by first taking the Langkawi Cable Car to the top station and then board Skyglide which is an inclined lift to get to the bridge. Skyglide opened in December 2015 and carries 12 passengers per trip. Each trip to the Sky Bridge lasts about 2 minutes.

Ranking among the world's longest suspension bridge. Construction of the bridge had to take into account several factors including structural balancing, optimal weight management and load distribution.

Being suspended from an 82-metre high single pylon, it hangs about 100 metres above ground and can accommodates up to 250 people at any one time. And unlike a straight bridge, this curved bridge offers visitors unique spatial experience with spectacular view with changing angles as one proceeds along it.
