Famous Cable Cars

The cable car taking you up to Table Mountain on the coast of South Africa, one of the new Seven Wonders of Nature, gives you an awesome view of the city of Cape Town, mountain ranges, and of course the ocean — all from 1,000 meters high!

 

The view from the window of Hong Kong’s Ngong Ping cable car is a huge expanse of water. Stretching across Tung Chung Bay, you can see the entire row of cable cars stretching out like a glittering necklace over the blue water.

 

The Roosevelt Island Tramway, an aerial cable car that spans the East River from Roosevelt Island to Manhattan, gives you an unusual bird’s-eye view of good old New York City!
