"the cablecar to Pedro de Valdivia Norte" Top 5 Page for this destination Santiago Transportation Tip by globetrott

Santiago Transportation: 89 reviews and 96 photos

There is a cablecar between the top-station of Cerro San Cristobal and Pedro de Valdivia Norte, an area with lots of villas by rich people, it is a nice area to take a walk or simply enjoy the view from the cablecar. From the funicular you have to go about 5 minutes in order to get to the cablecar and it is best to buy the tickets already at the cashier of the funicular, so you dont have to queue up again. A gondola takes up to 4 persons, as long as they are slim enough, for 2 this size is just perfect.
Those gondolas are not all-time-fixed to the rope, but are able to stop untill they are loaded without stress (by elderly people or small children) and then they will be fixed again and start the journey.
For handicapped people in wheelchairs the problems will start already with the funicular !
