This type of transport was used in the late 15th and early 16th century in Austria. It was used to transport goods and materials to the high court of Hohensalzburg Castle. Until the second half of the 19th century, this new type of transport was used for urban residents. Not only Eurozone countries but also other continents had applied this transportation to the mountainous and rugged terrain.
After the success of the cable car of Toc Tien – Indochine which achieved 4 world records, the opening of the first hiking train railway in Vietnam once again reaffirms the development of the unique business of Ba Na Hills in particular and Danang in general.
Ba Na Hills has selected a well-known cabling manufacturer partner from Swiss, Garaventa. Garaventa cable system has widely applied all over the world. They are able to build in the city, countryside or on tugged terrain. The advantage of this type of transport is the ability of moving gently through the rugged terrain.
