Sorry, no information available.

A support is suspended from ropes between two rocks.
You cannot get off at the intermediate station; this serves as a rope anchorage.
Since there are 12 groups of cabins and all of them are firmly attached to a rope, the train stops 5 times during the journey; whenever one of the other cabin groups enters the station. If a gondola drives over a support, the travel speed must be slowed down to 2 m / s.
