Ba Na Telpher gains four Guinness World Records

The third cable car route of the Ba Na – Suoi Mo telpher system in the central city of Da Nang, developed with capital of EUR30 million, will be officially put into operation on March 29, with a capacity of 1,500 passengers each hour. 

This is also the only cable route in the world recognised with four world records by Guinness World Records: the world’s longest single-cable telpher network (5,771.61 meters), the highest gap between the arrival and departure stations (1,368.93 meters), the heaviest cable roll (141.24 tonnes) and the longest cable wire unit (11,587 meters). The operation of the third cable route will shorten the journey from the mountain foot to the peak to 17 minutes. The route will have 86 open-design cabins, each with 10 person capacity, moving at a speed of 6 meters per second.

The third cable route was constructed in accordance with the standard of the World Telpher Association and was built by well-known cable producers Doppelmayr (Austria) and CWA (Switzerland).
