Palm Springs Aerial Tramway

Palm Springs Aerial Tramway was a lovely adventure on the world’s largest rotating tram car, into the San Jacinto Mountains outside of Palm Springs, CA

Perched atop the rugged cliffs of Chino Canyon, the Palm Springs Aerial Tramway is a marvel of engineering and a gateway to breathtaking natural beauty. This iconic attraction has a rich history that dates back to the mid-20th century, capturing the imagination of travelers and nature enthusiasts alike.

In 1963, the Palm Springs Aerial Tramway made its debut, offering visitors a thrilling journey from the desert floor to the pristine wilderness of Mount San Jacinto State Park. The tramway’s rotating cars, suspended by cables, ascend over 2.5 miles through the steep canyon walls, providing panoramic views of the Coachella Valley below.

The tramway not only serves as a mode of transportation but also as a portal to a different world—a world of towering pines, alpine meadows, and cool mountain air.

Personally, I love gondola tramway rides. Like my experience in Mammoth Lakes, Switzerland and  Vail, Colorado, I love how they truly do transport you to a different world, with stunning views to match.

Over the years, the Palm Springs Aerial Tramway has become an symbol of Palm Springs, attracting millions of visitors seeking adventure and natural beauty.

Whether it’s hiking along pristine trails, dining with a view at Peaks Restaurant, or simply marveling at the awe-inspiring vistas, the tramway offers an unforgettable experience that celebrates the harmony between human ingenuity and the majesty of nature.
