Thanks to the ropeway experts at Doppelmayr/Garaventa Group, China’s first tricable gondola (3S) has started operations on the famous Lushan/Mount Lushan in Jiangxi province. Renowned for its natural beauty and historical significance, the mountain was designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1996.

Mount Lushan is a prominent getaway for tourists year round, but is particularly popular during the summer months when visitors travel there to escape the heat and enjoy the cool weather.

With the new ropeway, visitors now have safe, scenic and environmentally-friendly transport to Mount Lushan in just seven and a half minutes. Before the cable car was constructed, tourists had to travel via a winding 15-kilometre mountain road.

The 2,864m ropeway was built with an initial capacity of 3,000 passengers per hour per direction (29 thirty passenger cabins) but can be expanded in the future to 4,000 passengers per hour per direction (39 thirty passenger cabins). The ability to expand will allow system operators to accommodate future visitorship growth.

To ensure the World Heritage Site status and environment is not impacted, the tricable gondola simply glides over the protected area with an unsupported rope span nearing 1,600 meters in length! Due to the incredible technological capabilities of 3S technology, it was the only ropeway type that could satisfy local design conditions while providing the necessary transport capacities.
