SGG’s Jericho Cable Car Has Been Part of Palestinian Life And Memory Since 1999.
The Tourism Sector in Palestine is of a significant importance to the Palestinian economy as it contributes 6% to GNP. Its strenghth is related to Palestine’s worldwide recognition as the Holy Land and the center-point of the three monotheistic religions: Islam, Christianity and Judaism. It also harbors a large number of historical, cultural, touristic and religious sites that enrich the tourist experience. SGG’s Jericho Cable Car is one of the most visited recreational sites in Palestine and has been part of our Palestinian memory and life since 1999. It is famous for its unique location, in the oldest city in the world, and for its spectacular views, and connection to Christianity. It provides visitors from all over the world access to the Monastery on the Mount of Temptation. To complement this site, SGG is undergoing construction of a new Four Star hotel, Al-Sultan Hotel, to be opened in Jericho with facilities such as a large water park, spa and gym, restaurant and shops, as well as access to Jericho Cable Car and its sites.
