Umgawa sky rangers / guides are professionally trained and highly qualified. They must undergo an 8-week training program and pass several exams before being certified in several aspects including First Aid and CPR. During the monthly nature discovery nights, they are also being continuously educated by the most well-known naturalist and environment experts available.
The adventure begins with a short hike before reaching the first zipline.
Safety gears are up and hence we are ready to fly!
As a “warm-up” session, the first few ziplines are pretty slow and steady although each gives different experiences in terms of speed, steepness and height. Ideal to build confidence at this stage. Moving on, from one zipline to another, it is becoming more challenging as the length of ziplines increases up to 200 metres! My favourite zipline is the second longest one, which goes up to 180 metres soaring over the Seven Wells waterfall, with a mountainous backdrop of Matchinchang Geopark and views of the Andaman Sea around Langkawi. One of the tallest sky bridges along the adventure.
In between the zipline stations, there are 3 sky bridges which we have to go through while our mates are busy adding momentum to the bridge at both ends. Imagine standing on a shaking bridge hanging in the middle of the jungle! How fun is that. With the world class safety standards, we are not worried at all. Just enjoy the flight while the well-trained rangers take care of the rest! Sometimes due to weather condition / body weight, people may get stuck along the zipline. Well, I experience that but there is nothing to panic about! The ranger will always provide assistance and ensure my safety.
Did I forget to mention that there is a Honeymoon Zipline where you can fly together with your other half on this double zipline? Sorry I don't have any picture for this. Lastly, our adventure ends with a controlled free fall through the fabulous rainforest.
Since Umgawa zipline is located just a short distance (10 minute walk) away from the popular Langkawi SkyBridge and SkyCab, at the entrance to Telaga Tujuh (Seven Wells waterfall), it is very convenient to just hop over after the zipline adventure. Not forgetting to mention experiencing the Seven Wells local village and bird-watching here too. No doubt it garners a lot of excellent rating on TripAdvisor.
The overall experience is wonderful as we get to soar through the treetops while immersing ourselves into the beauty of nature. It is also a great challenge for those who want to overcome acrophobia. Highly recommended for both young and old.
