Genting SkyWay: Highlands Station Maxims Hotel Resorts World Genting to Gohtong Jaya Genting SkyWay Complex by Cable Car

NOTE: This journey was made when the Awana SkyWay was closed for maintenance.

Only one (1) SkyWay will operate at any point of time with the Awana SkyWay being the main SkyWay and the Genting SkyWay being the “backup” SkyWay.

Buses go to EITHER the Awana Bus Terminal for the Awana SkyWay or Gohtong Jaya Genting SkyWay Complex for the Genting SkyWay at any one point of time, depending on which SkyWay is in operation. In the rare event that both SkyWays are out of service, the Go Genting Express Bus will head directly to First World Hotel at Resorts World Genting at no extra charge.

After spending the night at Genting, I headed back down to KL in the morning just after breakfast and guess what – no crowd existed.

There’s a huge sign directing people to the Awana SkyWay at the Genting SkyWay, probably just in case people are still thinking of the old Genting.

The short queue at the ticket counter and no queue for boarding the Genting SkyWay. Since I’ve already got a return ticket, I just headed straight for boarding.

The current price list for the Genting SkyWay:

  • One Way: RM8
  • Return: RM16
  • Genting Rewards Card: 5GP / RM8
  • Express Queue One Way: RM40
  • Chartered Gondola: RM300

Here, the staff takes off the other remaining portion of my ticket, leaving me with just the receipt.

Bye Genting.

Heading down with a great view of the Titiwangsa Mountain Range.



Some interior shots of the gondola since I had it all to myself. The windows open generously enough to let cool air in for sufficient ventilation and a camera lens out for photos.

Approaching the Gohtong Jaya Genting SkyWay Complex.





Arrived at the Gohtong Jaya Genting SkyWay Complex. The ride took around 20 minutes.

The totally empty queue area as compared with the crowd the day before.

Heading down to get the Go Genting Express Bus back to KL.
