|Langkawi Island cable car ride - |
we had similar experience in
The cable car cabin is a see through cabin and we had a 360 degree panoramic view of the surrounding area as our cabin inched up the cable steadily. A cabin can ferries about 70 visitors but that day only our group of 18 plus another 10 other visitors were in it. As we looked up along the cable which the cabins hung from, the scene was not much different from Malaysia's Langkawi Island cable ride. A gust of wind swayed the cabin to and fro, and Mummy M clutched my arm, her face pale as she was afraid of height. Little M and Middle M ooh and ahh at every little movement of the cabin. They played imagination game by naming the rocks as our cabin passed by them and named the rocks to resemble something they thought they look like - Tortoise Rock, Lion Rock, Fish Rock, Buddha Rock, etc, much to the amusement of other tourists in the cabin who also careened out their neck to see and visualized the rocks named by them. Ha, Ha, everyone had a good laugh.
As our cable car gets higher, the view of the mountains and the valley became clearer and we can see further and further out to the horizon. Little M pointed out to a temple like structure below us and a big Buddha statue. Jeff, our tour lead mentioned that it will be the next destination after visiting Ulsanbawi Peak. We also heard echoed of Buddhist chanting resonating through the valley, up to the cable car we were in. Finally the upper cable car station came into view and Mummy M started to loosen her grip on my arm.
Here are some pictures I took during Seoraksan's cable car ride:
