Visitors can soar above this deserted ancient Arabian village aboard Saudi Arabia’s first cable car system, whose Habalah station lays less than 330 feet south and north of the village’s best-preserved houses. Ropes attached to iron posts were the main means to transport supplies and people to and from this ‘hanging village,’ as its name means in English. Although the villagers eventually abandoned Habalah because its location was so difficult to reach, the intricately carved doorways of their homes remain in their original states. Today, the 1,000-foot cliff from which Habalah hangs can only be reached by cable car.
