Korea Destinations: Korea’s Longest Cable Car Opens in Sacheon


Located in South Gyeongsang Province, the Sacheon Ocean Cable Car opened to the public last week.

The 2.43 kilometer cable car is now the nations longest and provides stunning views of the oceans and mountains — a first that combines both on the 25 minute ride.

The new service provides 45 cars which can transport 1,300 passengers per hour, also has 15 Crystal cars with glass floors that provide views from as high as 74 meters.

Along the route, Changseon, Samcheonpo Bridge and the green sea, bamboo forests, the windmill at Chongno Park and nearby uninhabited islands provide spectacular views.

Mt. Hwasan station has also installed a 270m walking trail to the observatory, four photo zones and three shelters.

The beautiful scenery of Baekrim, a healing space among hikers, also features canola fields, a rose garden, a sunset gazebo in the shape of a sailboat, and a beach circumference road that is ideal romantic dates and Instagram photos.

Fares for the cable car are 15,000 won for adults and 12,000 won for children. Crystal cabins are 20,000 won for adults and 17,000 won for children.

It runs from 9 am to 6 pm from April to October and from 9 am to 5 pm from November to March.
