Zacatecas' most exhilarating ride and the easiest way to Cerro de la Bufa's summit is the Swiss-built cablecar that crosses high above the city from Cerro del Grillo. It's a short walk east from Mina El Edén (east entrance) to the teleférico's Cerro del Grillo station. Alternatively, huff up the steep steps of Callejón de García Rojas, which lead straight to the teleférico from Genaro Codina. Cars depart every 15 minutes (except when it's raining or when winds exceed 60km/h) and the trip takes seven minutes.
