On July 16 “TaTever” ropeway set a new record, receiving 1371 passengers in a day.

The previous record was set on July 20, 2014, when in a day the ropeway received 1321 passengers.

“TaTever” reversible ropeway was built in 2010 within the frames of Tatev Revival project of Initiatives for Development of Armenia (IDeA) Foundation.

It is the longest reversible ropeway in the world. Not only the length of the ropeway is record (5752), but also the period during which the ropeway was built- only 10 months.

The project was implemented by the world leading Austro-Swiss Doppelmayr/Garaventa company.

In the first year of its operation, “TaTever” ropeway received about 10 000 visitors, and in 2016 the number of the visitors of the ropeway exceeded 505 000.

Thanks to Revival of Tatev project the region of Tatev is becoming world famous tourist destination, which receives tourists from Russia, Europe and the USA. “Tatev Gateaway”, “Mets Tatev” (Big Tatev), project of restoration of Tatev monastery and creation of “Tatev” national park serve as a basis for complex development of the region.
