Transparent funiculars appeared on the gondola road connecting Medeo and Shymbulak, giving a 360-degree view. There are even the glass floors in the cabins, transmits NUR.KZ.
All sides of the booth are also glass. This gives fans of mountain recreation the opportunity to see the beauty of the Almaty mountains from all sides. Such a surprise was presented to the residents and guests of Almaty by the Shymbulak ski resort.
– We aim to give people beautiful emotions, the brightest colors of life. From today cabins will circulate along the gondola road, there will be five cabins in total. Such funiculars exist in other countries of the world, said the director of Shymbulak.
A ticket for a funicular with a 360 degree view will cost more than a trip in a regular booth for 500 tenge – 4000 tenge will be the cost of the trip. Cab waiting time will be 7 minutes. It is planned that a hot drink will be delivered to such booths.
