Dezeen’s A-Zdvent calendar: Langkawi Sky Bridge by Peter Wyss

The letter L in our festive countdown of bridges is the Langkawi Sky Bridge, a suspended structure at the top of a mountain on Malaysia‘s Langkawi archipelago.

Designed by planning consultant Peter Wyss, the 125-metre-long walkway is one of the world’s longest curved suspension bridges, and is located at the peak of Gunung Mat Chinchang on Pulau Langkawi island.

A total of just eight steel cables support the structure, extending out from a single 82-metre-high pylon.

The pedestrian deck curves around this pylon. At each end, the walkway widens to create a triangular platform offering visitors panoramic views out across the treetops.

At present, the only feasible way to reach the bridge is to ride a cable car up the mountain, then take a 20-minute uphill trek through the jungle. But a cable railway is under construction to make it more accessible.
