Jericho is a Palestinian city in the West Bank. It is located in the Jordan Valley, with the Jordan River to the east and Jerusalem to the west.
The Jericho Cable Car is a cable car that has been leading from Jericho to the Mount of Temptation to the Qarantal Monastery there since 1999. The track is completely below sea level.
The group cable car with twelve 8-person gondolas in four groups leads over 1330 m from the valley station to the height of the Qarantal monastery at −50 m. It passes the Elijah Spring (or Sultan's Spring) and leads across the archaeological site of Tell es-Sultan, which lies at an altitude of −230 m. The Jericho Cable Car is also the longest cable car below sea level.
Next to the valley station is a tourist center with a restaurant and an event hall. There is a coffee house with a terrace at the mountain station. A gondola is set up for use with a wheelchair.
