The project

South Korea is developing its tourist transport offer and offering new experiences, drawing on POMA's expertise. This dynamic is rooted in the commercial success of the Yeosu cable car built by POMA in 2014.

The tourism objective of the gondola lift project is to link the city of Mokpo and the island of Gohado. The link, which stretches over more than 3 km, passes through the famous Yudalsan Sculpture Park and its Gatbawi rock, a popular site with Koreans and international tourists alike. The trip, aboard one of the 55 cabins—1/3 of which have a glass floor—is accessible to all travellers and offers a breathtaking view of the city, the archipelago and the ocean at an unprecedented and impressive height of nearly 150 m at its highest point, that of the tallest concrete tower ever made anywhere in the world.

The Mokpo gondola lift holds another record: its cabins travel over the ocean for 1.2 km, the longest span of rope between two towers in the world for a monocable ropeway!

POMA, innovation

for the project

A 68° angle

for the middle station

The middle station has an angle of 68°. It allows the gondola lift, once it has crossed the sea stretch, to reach the city of Mokpo by travelling over Dalseong Park, the 12 monumental sculptures of Yudalsan, the sanctuaries and the many hiking paths etched into this mountain, without altering this unique site.

Two records

for this gondola lift

In 2019, with the Mokpo gondola lift, POMA produced its longest span of rope between two towers (1.2 km) and the tallest cement tower (150 m), meaning that South Korea boasts the world’s highest journey ever made by monocable ropeway.

No sea-based

towers

The ropeway was designed so that no tower would need to be installed in the sea, so as not to interfere with maritime traffic. Taking this major technical constraint as its starting point, the POMA teams designed an extraordinary ropeway system.
