I went to Genting Highland last week with my family. At first, I thought of driving all the way to the top but change my mind to park my car at Genting Skyway station at Gohtong Jaya. To go to Genting Highland, I was using Karak Highway from Gombak and I have to pay RM5.00 at Gombak plaza toll which is near to Islamic International University. The return ticket for taking the Genting Skyway is RM10.00 for adult and free for my son. It’s a breathtaking experience for me as I am afraid of height. I would rather drive than taking this cable car but for the sake of trying, I just played down the feelings. For the first 5 minutes, the feelings of Hypsiphobia came and quickly gone away once I managed to accustomed myself to the surrounding environment. Now I can proudly say that I am no longer a Hypsiphobia person when it comes to cable car. Heh! Am I? Wait till I try bungee jump.
Genting Skyway is the longest cable car in South East Asia at a distance of 3.4 kilometers and also the fastest suspended ride in the world. Through out the ride, we are able to enjoy a scenic view of 100 millions years of old rainforest. It is an experience not to be missed when we are going to the top of Genting Highland. I should have tried the Genting Skyway long time ago.
