  Oncoming tram near the midway point
by Ken_Weaver

The world's longest tramway(cablecar) rises from the desert just outside of Albuquerque to the Sandia Peak at the height of 10, 378ft. The vertical ascent is about 4000 feet and one stretch of the trip is 1.7 miles between towers!.....the longest cable stretch in the world. A rider asked the attendant how high up we were and he responded that " We are 1000 feet up and 7 seconds to down!"

Address: #10 tramway Loop NE, Albuquerque, NM 87122
Directions: Take the Tramway Rd exit off of I-25 and follow the signs to the base.
