KUCHING - The legendary Mount Santubong, which covers the horizon of the tourist triangle of Santubong, Bako and Buntal, will soon have a cable car, if the proposal is approved.
Deputy Chief Minister Datuk Patinggi Alfred Jabu said that a group of Austrian experts has expressed interest in realising the cable car project.
He said these same experts were also responsible for setting up the renowned 2.2-kilometre cable car link in Langkawi, which was from the foothill of Machinchang to its summit.
Besides the Austrian experts, a local company has also submitted a similar proposal to the state government, which is currently under evaluation.
The proposal to the system was a follow-up to an earlier study by Sarawak's Tourism Ministry which "sought a way that would allow visitors to enjoy the scenic rides amid lush greenery up the Mount Santubong," Jabu said.
