Vietnam introduces world’s longest three-rope cable car system in its Lao Cai province on Tuesday, 2nd February, 2016. With a length of around 6,292.5 metres, the cable car system has also been recognized by the Guinness World Records as the longest three-rope cable car route in the world. The rope-way boasts of the world’s biggest height gap of approximately 1,410 metres between its departure and arrival stations.
The cable car has been designed to connect a 240km distance between Muong Hoa Valley and Fansipan mountain in Lao Cai. It has a capacity of carrying 20,000 passengers per hour with 35 passengers in each cabin. With the introduction of this system, travel time to the peak of Fansipan mountain, also known as the ‘Roof of Indo-China’, measuring some 3,143-metre, has been reduced to 15 minutes in a single run. This one-of-its-kind cable car is expected to boost tourism by 30 to 40 percent in Lao Cai’s Sa Pa town of Vietnam.
The world’s longest cable car ride is going to offer more breathtaking views of Vietnam’s beautiful landscape to travellers. So, if Vietnam was not included in your world travel list till now, then include it soon and be a part of a spectacular cable car journey.
