Bolivie: inauguration du téléphérique urbain le plus long et le plus haut du monde (Video R)

Le président bolivien Evo Morales a inauguré vendredi la première ligne du réseau de téléphérique urbain le plus long et le plus haut du monde, entre La Paz et El Alto. 

Construit par l'entreprise autrichienne Doppelmayr pour 234 millions de dollars, ce téléphérique relie les villes de La Paz et d'Alto, entre 3.200 et 4.000 mètres d'altitude, en pleine Cordillère des Andes. 

Cette ligne permettra aux passagers de rallier les deux villes en moins de 10 minutes, contre plus d'une demi-heure en voiture ou en transport collectif, avec en toile de fond les cimes enneigés de l'Illimani, qui culmine à 6.462 mètres d'altitude, un des plus hauts sommets de la Bolivie.
