China’s longest strop ropeway will be in full operation starting this April in Guangzhou, capital of Guangdong province, according to a statement released by Baiyun Mountain Scenic Spot, the ropeway operator, on Thursday.

With a total length of 1,500 meters, the facility has been designed for a maximum speed of 120 kilometers per hour and is expected to be a major attraction for the city’s tourism industry.

It will take riders around two minutes to travel across the valley, while taking road transportation on the same route is estimated to take upwards of an hour.

The ropeway, which has a drop of more than 200 meters, offers six different lines tailored to visitors with varied weights and looking for diversified speeds. In general it covers Moxingling, the highest peak of the mountain, as well as Huangpodong Reservoir at the foot of the mountain.

A safety braking system is placed at the destination to guarantee visitors enjoy the vertigo-inducing adventure without causing any physical damage.

Operators of the facility hope the new installation will bring visitors to the spot from both home and abroad.

Previously the longest strop ropeway in service in China was at the Huaguoshan mountain scenic spot in Lianyungang, East China’s Jiangsu province. That 788-meter-long ropeway has a drop of 136 meters.
