Genting skyway is a cable car system which connects Gohtong Jaya and Resorts World Genting. Though there is a road leading up to Genting highland resorts the cable car is the preferred mode of transport for all tourists – with the kind of views on offer, no wonder!


Some trivia:

– The monocable gondola lift officially opened on 21 February 1997.
– Genting Skyway can carry more than 2,000 people per hour with 8 passengers per gondola.
– At the maximum speed of 6 meters per second (21.6 km/h), the 3.38 kilometers journey up the mountain peak takes approximately 15 minutes, depending on the weather.

The most surprising observation was that the cable cars of the Genting skyway never stopped for passengers to climb-in/alight , the passengers have to be fit enough to get in and out of the cable car when the cable car moves at a walking speed. Due to this fact I never saw the cable cars fully loaded to capacity of 8 members per car.

Nagaraja Shenoy Manikkar  we spent 2 hrs in a queue at the starting point, it being a public holiday. Avoid Genting on holidays!
