I have - in Hong Kong at Lantau Island. It is a reasonably long journey but I just decided to go for it and give it a try. The people we went away with were too scared so took the journey back by bus & I think they really missed out. The ride was so smooth that it wasn't scary at all.
The view was amazing so it was well worth it.
Cable cars are not just for mountains - I've travelled in one in Singapore that was crossing over the sea from the main island to a tiny one just off the coast and also, as in this photo, there's a cable car across the Rhine in Cologne, Germany. I love travelling in them! The views are spectacular :)
I have - while I was in India, the Gold Coast, Singapore and Malaysia. I miss them so so much and wish I could go on cable car rides more often. It gives me the chance to destress, tone down on the thinking and just enjoy a whole new perspective of the world!
I was in one in Queenstown, New Zealand under sufference as I dislike heights. Makes me feel as though I want to throw myself off wherever I am. When I looked down I saw a car that had crashed some time previously and didn't want to go back down in one. I convinced mum to stay in the restaurant for quite some time as my courage was failing more and more. When I asked the staff if there was another way down, i.e., walking, the girls just smiled and said "no". It was almost dark before we headed back down again. Never been in one since.
Yes I travelled on the one featured in your photo up Table Mountain in Cape Town about 6 weeks ago. It was fantastic and lots to see on top.The mountain is 1085 meters , highly recommended if you ever visit Cape Town.the cable car rotates as you move , good visit
Yes. Table Mountain (Cape Town), Grouse Mountain (Vancouver) Sentosa cable way (Singapore) Sugar Loaf Mtn (Rio de Janiero) - this one broke down after we reached the top, so there was a bit of a wait to get back down again. It was the modern German car that broke down!!!! So they were preparing the old Italian car to fetch us (it looked well beyond its safety date). Fortunately the German car was fixed and everyone arrival safely as the base station. It was a fun day!
