Teleférico de Orizaba

Top choice cable car in Orizaba

This cable car rattles and sways visitors from its riverside site across from the Palacio Municipal right up to the top of the Cerro del Borrego hill (1240m) for incredible views over the city and easy access to hiking routes. It takes just five minutes to travel nearly 1km and climb some 320m. Vertigo sufferers will probably just have to ask people to describe the view to them!

It's a fab excursion, and once you reach the top of the Cerro del Borrego, you'll find signed walking trails and an 'eco-park,' which has picnic areas, a small military museum, playgrounds and, between 1pm and 6pm on weekends, a re-creation of a military battle that took place here in the late 19th century.
