LAO CAI (VNS) — The world's longest three-rope cable car, connecting Muong Ha Valley and Fansipan Mountain in the northern province of Lao Cai, has served 40,000 tourists in one month of operation.
With the world's most modern three-rope system, the Fansipan cable car can withstand harsh weather conditions and guarantees complete safety for visitors, says its investor, the Sun Group. It has the capacity to shuttle 2,000 passengers per hour with each cabin accommodating up to 35 people.
Besides the cable car system, Viet Nam's Sun Group has plush five-star hotels, restaurants with local specialties, golf courses and a shopping mall at the Fansipan Legend tourism site.
The investor expects the system to boost the number of tourists to Sa Pa by 30 to 40 per cent every year. — VNS
