After traveling a few hundred feet upward, the cable car stops before Sky Bridge, the final station. Near where you disembark, there are dozens of stalls selling souvenirs, toys, snacks and drinks. Those who are afraid of heights can pass it regularly, but it is a very safe bridge with double steel railings and a closed wire mesh.
