"Take Palm Springs Aerial Tramway" Other California Sights Tip by SLLiew

Other California Sights, California: 71 reviews and 320 photos


Going up the tram, it is a jump of 5,873 feet (1,781 m) from valley terminal to mountain terminal which is at 8.516 feet (2597 m).

Be prepared and dressed for a thermal shock of as much as 30-40 degrees cooler at the top. You can see the flat lowland below and a large salt lake.

Collected many different varieties of pine cones but was warned that it is against the park laws to pick up anything. Fortunately, not fined and just left my collection behind.
