The Awana Skyway is one of the most convenient ways to reach the peak of Genting Highlands, where you can find an array of shopping, dining and entertainment options. Operating between 07:00 and 00:00, this state-of-the art cable car system takes about 10 minutes from Awana Station to SkyAvenue Station, which is directly connected to the SkyAvenue Shopping Mall.
The line also stops at Chin Swee Station, where you can disembark at no extra cost to explore the breathtaking Taoist temple of the same name. Do remember to keep your ticket as it’s required to continue your journey either towards the SkyAvenue or Awana stations.
Awana SkyWay Gondolas
There are two types of gondolas to choose from, both of which offer a bird’s eye view of a 130-million-year-old rainforest as well as numerous attractions and hotels in Genting Highlands. The standard gondola can accommodate up to 10 passengers, while the glass-floor gondola accommodates only six passengers. All of them have louvres to provide ventilation, as well as power outlets in case you need to charge your mobile phones.
A one-way ticket for the standard gondola is priced at RM8 per person, but we highly recommend the glass-floor gondola for a more jaw-dropping view of the highlands, which costs RM50 per person. Alternatively, an express boarding pass can be purchased for RM40. Ticketing counters for Awana Skyway are located on Level 2 of the building.
If you’re planning on staying at one of Genting Highlands’ many hotels, do note that you’re allowed to carry one aircraft-cabin-size bag when travelling on the Awana Skyway. Oversized luggage can be stored at the Baggage Storage Service (Level G) for RM5 per bag for 24 hours. As the Awana Skyway is a cost-effective method of transportation in Genting Highlands, it can get very packed during weekends and holidays, so head there early to avoid long queues.
