Beautiful view from 10,340 feet up! Dinner at the top was great. Did get a bit dizzy though from the altitude.

For a city girl, I sure did a lot of nature things on this trip. This tram up the mountain was spectacular! Our guide shared some really cool facts and the view from the top were amazing! This is definitely something to consider when visiting Albuquerque.

This is a fun trip for the entire family. A great way to view the sights of Albuquerque. Go in the late afternoon to watch the sunset and the city lights. The restaurant is best missed.

This stop was on my group tour which also included lunch at the restaurant where you get on the ride at the bottom. If you go be sure to have a reservation already for the tram. Being a group we had one but there were people lined up forever to get tickets and they ended up shutting down after we... More

When I thought of Albuquerque I always thought of a decrepit city that was featured in Breaking Bad. First of all, I was absolutely mislead. Secondly, the highlight of our trip to Albuquerque was riding the Sandia Peak Tramway, up and past 10,000ft.

If you're coming to Albuquerque, definitely try to take the Tram. Leaving the lower elevations, you look down on cactus and juniper forest, which changes into pinon pine. Nice to see how dramatic the changes are. I've seen deer and a bald eagle from the tram. If you have more time, go for a hike at the top. It is... More

The tram ride up to Sandia Peak which is 10,700+ feet is an awesome experience. The ride up is very cool and the view of Albuquerque after you get the top is fabulous, especailly at night. The difference is temperature from the time we boarded the tram until we got to the peak was about 20 degrees. By the time... More

Visited this cable car on the advice of friends in Denver who suggested it as a good stop off before our arrival in Alberquerque. We were not disappointed. The car ride was excellent and the views of New Mexico were beyond my expection. Only wish we'd had more time to explore the upper station restaurant and walk part of the... More

As you will read on the signs at the ticket counter, this is listed as one of the 99 things that you must do before you die. What a thrilling ride in a tram to the top of Sandia Peak at 10,387 ft. I am not a fan of very high places, but this was an amazing ride through some... More

Not to be missed when visiting Albuquerque. Stunning views of Albuquerque + surrounding areas, as well as Sandia Peak as the cable car takes you higher. Don't forget to bring your camera to take pictures on your way up + when There you reach the summit you can take more there. There's a resturant at the summit. Additionally, there is... More
