    Nice article. I have never seen a post about popular or famous rope way cable car systems. I never thought about exploring a new area by using these gondolas to get a birds eye view of everything. Thanks for the inspiration.

    Traveling between each of these could be a really cool, unique way to see India! Except for #8, that one looks like a terrifying death trap. It would might be a good idea to make another post with more pictures and more information for each of these cable cars, etc such as how travelers can find them, the best season to ride them and that kind of thing.

    I didnt know you guys have so much cablecars! Manila should follow in your footsteps because frankly, the super worse traffic condition is slowly killing us. I liked traveling by cable car in Hong Kong so I would like to try one of these too!

    I’ve only ever risen something like this on ski trips, which didn’t phase me at all, but some of these look terrifying! What a cool collection though 🙂

    What fantastic views and it looks like each lift is unique. I love a chair lift or cable car ride, living in the midwest in the U.S., they are a treat when I am traveling.
