Day 11...

Breakfast at the Dayan café where we see little squirrels clambering all over the tree branches. Last night on our way to the village, we came across a family of monkeys which had just come down from the rainforest.

We make our way back to the oriental village to get on the Langkawi cable Car. The cable car will take us to the top of Mat Cincang Mountain. It's an awe-inspiring journey and we get a panoramic views over Langkawi and neighbouring Kedah Provence. The car takes us up 709 metres and the journey covers 2.2 km  at an incline of 42 degrees. It is quite an exhilarating ride to the top as we see the beaches and the islands retreat into the distance. It is a shame that the humidity in the air has created a typical tropical haze, reducing some of the views.

To get to the hanging bridge, we have to descent some very steep stairs. The view from the bridge is also breathtaking. We had to make a few stop on the way back up as my legs were aching from the strain. We grabbed another car to the second viewing platform. The views from there are even more exhilarating.

This afternoon, we will be taking a taxi to Kuah Town for a bit of sightseeing.
