the scenic 15 minute ride. how to ride the skyway, the genting skyway is located at the Gotong Jaya area and is about 1500 feet above sea level and all tourist buses and private vans pass by here so that tourists and locals get a chance to ride the 3.5 kilometer slow ride to the top of the Genting Highlands aboard this cable car where the average ride will last 11 minutes along the lush tropical forests of the genting highlands and it really gets foggy at the top. The station allows hotel and luggage check-in procedures to be completed at the station itself. Its upper station is located at the Highlands Hotel of Genting Highlands Resort. Genting Skyway can carry more than 2,000 people per hour each way with 8 passengers per gondola. This is the newer Sky Way, the older skyway is the Awana Skyway (i did not have time to ride the Awana Skyway).
