Construction is just about finished on the new gondola (teleférico) at Peidra Volada near Divisadero in Copper Canyon. This new attraction and its cables will drape itself over the canyon right in front of the overlooks near the Mirador Hotel.
Just next to this gondola on the west side of the canyon will be the new zipline system. The word is tirolesa and it is expected to be the world’s largest, sweeping over vast areas of the canyon in five stages to the “saddle”. The saddle is the area known to hikers over the years where you get your first peak toward the bottom and the Urique River.
Here are the lengths of the 5 ziplines:
Stage 1: 570m
Stage 2: 953m
Stage 3: 520m
Stage 4: 1100m
Stage 5: 940m
Stage 5 takes you to the end of the gondola and you will ride it back up to Piedra Volada.
