The world’s longest three-rope cable car system, extending from the northern Lao Cai Province’s Sapa Town to Fansipan peak, will open for passengers towards the end of Q3 2015. The construction of the cable car is being carried out during the first phase of the Fansipan Sapa tourism complex.
The cable car can carry a maximum of 2,000 passengers per hour, with each cabin accommodating 35 passengers. The cable car will transport passengers from the base of the 3,143-metre Fansipan Mountain, to its highest point within 15 to 20 minutes. Currently, it takes one to two days to trek to the top of the mountain.
