Albuquerque’s Sandia Peak Tramway steals the scenery show

See also

Albuquerque has many scenic things to boast about and the Sandia Peak Tramway is no exception. It is simply known as the tram; it starts at the base of the massive Sandia Mountains and concludes at the top/peak, which is over 10,000 feet in elevation.

As passengers climb onboard and ascend the mountain they will have a unique vantage point of amazingly breathtaking sights from every side. The tram travels through rocky canyons and above tall aspens and evergreen trees. The peak offers a restaurant with a panoramic view of the Rio Grande Valley and Cibola Forest spanning over 11,000 square feet.

Travelers choosing a time during sunset will enjoy beautiful colors in the usually clear New Mexico sky. Hikers can also choose to hike to the peak and take the Tram back to the bottom of the mountain.

The Tram is equipped for up to 50 passengers and has plenty of windows to take in the view. For more information regarding the hours of operation and fares to ride the tram visit their site by clicking here.
