The project is expected to become a major tourist attraction, drawing visitors from across the globe to marvel at the breathtaking scenery and experience the thrill of soaring above the majestic mountains.
DEWA’s participation at WETEX highlights the authority’s commitment to sustainability and innovation, showcasing its efforts to integrate cutting-edge technologies into its operations. The cable car project epitomizes this commitment, utilizing advanced engineering and design to minimize environmental impact while providing an unforgettable experience for visitors.
The stunning cable car route will feature three stations: the lower dam, the upper reservoir, and the summit of Um Al Nesoor mountain. Each station will be designed to seamlessly blend with the surrounding natural beauty, ensuring that the project enhances the visitor experience without compromising the pristine environment.
