The Tatev ropeway is the longest double-reverse passenger cable car in the world, called “Wings of Tatev”, located in Armenia and connecting through the Vorotan ravine the villages of Alidzor and Tatev. On October 23, 2010, the new airway was listed in the Guinness Book of Records as the world’s longest reversible cable car. The record was not only the length of the air main (5752 m), but also the timing of its construction – 10 months…The cable car extends 5.7 km over the deep and picturesque canyon of the Vorotan River, connecting two villages: Alizdor and Tatev. The maximum height above the gorge is 320 m. The cabin accommodates 25 passengers and moves at a speed of 37 km / h, passing the path from the point of departure to the destination in 11 minutes 25 seconds. Six cables support the cab. The cables are able to hold loads that are 10-15 times higher than the rated load. The main drive of the road is two electric motors – one main, one reserve. In addition, the elements are equipped with a diesel engine, which is connected in case of a power failure. The performance of the cable car is provided even with winds up to 70 m / s. Vorotan gorge is the true “pearl” of Syunik and one of the largest canyons of Armenia. The mountain river Vorotan flows through this picturesque canyon, 100 meters deep, which originates in the western part of Karabakh Highlands. Rising on the cable car “Wings of Tatev” you can enjoy the delightful views of the canyon from the cabin at the height of bird’s flight.
