Though it's a little spendy and on occasion the lines can be long this is a worthwhile trip. If you are taking photos I would recommend a morning trip as the sun will be behind you. In the later afternoons it can be hard to photograph the city and surrounding area due to glare. The gondola hold 50 so get a window position and be prepared for a fantastic ride.

Sandia Peak Tramway is a must do in Albuquerque,NM. Amazing ride to the top in a tramway.They let you take pictures.When you get to the top, it is a beautiful view. I would also recommend to take a chair lift ride.It is an extra $ 8 per person and it's worth it. We went on a sunny day in the early afternoon.Please keep in mind,that the temperature on top is MUCH colder.So you will need some warm clothes.

Take some time and do this! You will not regret it. I think you can call ahead for reservations, but be sure to allow plenty of time to get there. Once you are on top of the Sandias you can eat or have drinks at the restaurant. The best time to go is just before dusk. Keep a sharp lookout for longhorn sheep too.

This is a fun tram ride to the highest peak in Albuquerque with an amazing view of the area. Certainly worth the time and money to do it while you are in the area.
