Another cable car system to take shape at Huong Pagoda (August 06, 2003)

Work began on a cable car system at the Huong (Perfume) Pagoda in northern Ha Tay province on Tuesday.

The cable car system, manufactured by Doppen Mayr of Austria, will employ the most modern technology yet to be installed in Vietnam. It will comprise 33 cable cars, capable of carrying an initial 1,100 passengers per hour, and up to 1,500 passengers in its second phase.

The 1,200-m cable car route linking Thien Tru Pagoda with Huong Tich Cave will run a round trip of 4.6 minutes. Passengers will be ferried from three terminals, one at Thien Tru Pagoda, another at Giai Oan Pagoda and a third at Huong Tich Cave. The system is expected to be operational next February.

Huong Pagoda, 60km southwest of Hanoi, is a famous complex of shrines built on a picturesque low-lying limestone mountain in Huong Son commune, My Duc district. It attracts thousands of pilgrims from every corner of Vietnam during its two-month festival, which opens on the sixth day of the first lunar month.
