For anyone who has been wondering, teleferico stands for cable car. Even it was nothing outstanding or astonishing, the park area atop the mountain provided really excellent view of the city and the surrounding ocean. There were also a lot of things to do, too.

The Caracas Aerial Tramway ascends El Ávila Mountain within El Ávila National Park, in Caracas, Venezuela. The park area at the top of the mountain is a wide walkway along the ridgeline. Several sellers have set up food or handicraft kiosks. There is also a restaurant and ice skating rink, an enormous Venezuelan flag waving in the breeze, and the... More

Assuming that you must visit Caracas (and dare to do it), then if you want to take a leisure day, a visit to Avila mountain using the "teleferico" (cable car) is a good bet. Taxis to and from the starting terminal are easy to find. Once in the teleferico, the trip takes about 30 min and all during the ascend... More

Local crushes, friendly people and typical art add to an amazing ride on cable car up the mountain and back

A nice view of the mountain. At the top we can find installations that should be upgraded or working. The walk is very nice

I hate heights. I am deathly afraid of cable cars. Why do I do this to myself? The world may never know... I had a mini panic attack on the way up as soon as I felt the height, but once I was able to calm down, the views are amazing. The cable cars only fit about 10 people, so... More

The aerial lift arrives you to one of the famous sites in Caracas, the "Ávila" or now it's called "Warairarepano". You can view all the valley bellow your feet, the perfect hour is in the night to see all the city's light.

Its one of the longest air gondola rides I've been on. It goes over 3-4 ridges each one way higher than one below. Very steep up the ridge side and almost flat over the gullies. If you are afraid of height don't go or keep your eyes close during almost 20 minutes ride. For me it was extremely nice as... More

I have been there an Teleferico to Avila hill is a very good price choice (BS 200), is about 15 minutes going up and when you arrive there is a very beautiful and calm place, good to drink some hot chocolate and read a book, you can also ice skating on the rink there and is very cheap (BS 200).
