Palm Springs, California
Not knowing what to expect, we set off on route to Palm Springs from Los Angeles (an adventure on its own) and really pleasantly surprised at what we found at the Aerial Tramway – from the moment we obtained our tickets and boarded the Tram, rode to the top of the mountain, and then the fantastic views and number of forest trails you find at the top – A journey that will be remembered for a time yet.
The Tram ride includes a Narrative as you travel which is fairly informative, only to be interrupted by the sudden squeals of delight from fellow passengers as the Tram passes over the towers on route, sudden surges and sways, gentle enough and part of the experience – and once at the top, time is yours to do as you wish – The initial walk into the forest wilderness a little steep, but worth it! A steady climb back is all that’s required on the managed pathway.
The temperature shift from the bottom to the top of the valley was also a strange experience - From 100+ to 70+ even at this temperature and time of year (Aug 2011), sun block and waters a must
Buying tickets in advance from Viator was easy and would highly recommend
Easily found using Sat Nav – which is a must in the USA travelling anywhere.
