The Wings of Tatev cable car has been nominated for World Travel Awards 2023

The Wings of Tatev cable car has again been nominated for the prestigious international tourism award, World Travel Awards 2023, in the category of “World’s Leading Cable Car Ride 2023”. The project won first in this category in 2021. Now it is competing with phones from Bolivia, Brazil, Canada, New Zealand, South Africa, the United States and Vietnam.

Wings of Tatev is the longest passenger cable car in the world. He entered in Guinness Book of Records, not only because of its length – 5,752 meters – but also as the only engineering structure in the world of this scale built in just 10 months. The cable car project was carried out by the Austrian-Swiss company Doppelmayr/Garaventa, a leader in the field of cable car construction.

On October 16, 2023, the Wings of Tatev cable car celebrated its 13th year of operation. Since its opening in 2010, it has been used by more than 1,300,000 people. Thanks to the cable car, every fifth tourist in Armenia visits Tatev. The Wings of Tatev project is part of the “Tatev revival program”, initiated by Ruben Vardanyan and Veronika Zonabend. The funicular, managed by Impulse Business Management, is a non-profit project, and all its revenues are directed to the restoration of the Tatev Monastery and the development of the community.
