Sugar Loaf cable car

Considered to be one of the safest in the world by international agencies of passenger cable cars, it has never had an accident with casualties. The current lines have safety devices with alarm at all points.

Every morning, before receiving the first tourists, the cable cars have a trial run. The route is entirely programmed by electronic equipment that checks 47 safety items.

  1. and it still wouldn't entice me up there; I like my feet firmly on the ground. Seems likek yours were when you took this photo; great shot!

  2. Different shot of cable car and street light. You must have the patience of a saint.

  3. Muito diferente, ideia interessante.


  4. I have happy memories of going on this many years ago, on my first afternoon of many in Rio. ;-)


  5. I know they are safe, but I am scared to death of them. I like to keep my feet on terra firma if at all possible. What is that long piece under the cable car? Or, is it just part of it? Love the photos. They are stunning. I especially like seeing the lines against the blue sky. genie

  6. Que interessante... um momento único!
    Adoro fotos em contraluz.


  7. arrepiantemente bela!
    abraço, mago das objetivas!
