The travel worth the price. The cable car looks safe. You reach almost 4000 metres so the view is fantastic. You can trek to the top of the mountain but you need to go up very early in the morning otherwise you'll have not time...More

Take a cab to the teleferico then buy your ticket. Nice ride up and great views.. Can be windy and cool. Hiking trails from the end of the gondola ride. Restaurant and gift shop of course.

Hi. There were many kids who took the Teleferico. So I think your daughter can do it, just take it slow.
