And, Gunung Matcinchang was believed to have been a giant, known as Matcinchang, who was cursed and turned into a mountain. Fables aside, this mountain is testimony to the oldest geology found in Malaysia. It consists of 450 million year-old metamorphosed rock, around which a unique ecological habitat has developed over the centuries.
It is because of this that the geopark status was accorded by UNESCO to Langkawi in 2007, making it the only geopark in Southeast Asia and the 52nd under the UNESCO Global Geoparks Network. The Langkawi Geopark is said to have the best exposed and most complete Palaeozoic sedimentary in Malaysia, formed during the Cambrian age 450-550 million years ago.
Walking across the sky bridge is like a walk in the clouds with magnificent view of the surrounding horizon, the island’s landscape, skyline and the seas beyond.
