World’s longest cable car to open in Danang
A 5,042-meter-long cable car ride near Danang has been recognized as the world’s longest single-cable cable car
The world’s longest single-cable cable car system will officially begin operations on Wednesday near the central city of Danang.
The 5,042-meter-long cable car at Ba Na Mountain has been recognized as the world’s longest single-cable cable car by the Guinness World Records, the Ba Na Cable Car Joint Stock Company said at a Monday press briefing.
The cable car system links the foot of Ba Na Mountain with the peak of neighboring Vong Nguyet Mountain in the Ba Na-Suoi Mo Tourism Area, some 40 kilometers west of Danang City.
The VND300 billion (US$17.2 million) cable car system is able to transport 1,500 passengers an hour.
It is estimated to take 15 minutes to travel the 5,042-meter cable car ride.
At the final station of the cable car, tourists will be able to see a 27-meter-high Buddha statue, believed to be the largest of its kind in Southeast Asia.
