In 2016 opened a cable car from Sapa to the top of Fansipan mountain, which was called Sun World Fansipan Legend.

After all, today, reached the top, you find yourself in a tourist complex, filled to capacity with vacationers, mainly from China and local tourists. But on the other hand, if you are not ready for Hiking climbing, it is easy to admire the views of the cloud top with the highest peak of Indochina at 3143 meters.

Sun World is a chain of entertainment parks in Vietnam (Danang, ha long, the mountain of the Ban), and now a leisure Park created on top of Fansipan, where vdet is the cable car. It is, of course, is not as extensive as in other places, was built here only a few architectural sites, including a pagoda, a restaurant, and a funicular railway runs from the arrival station of the cable-car up to the observation deck at the top

This cable car belongs to two world records, including the longest ropeway in the world. Its length is 6292,5 meters, and the height difference when climbing - 1410 metres. The cableway allows you to climb to the top in just 15 minutes, instead of the two-day pedestrian lift.
