Ropeway in Gangtok resumes operating

Posted by Team on: Jan 11, 2023

Recently, Gangtok's regular ropeway operations resumed with a few test runs after being closed for renovation. If reports are to be believed, the public has responded positively, and the ropeway has been running at full capacity. What makes the ropeway significant? Well, it offers captivating views of the Himalayan vista and makes it simple to connect two areas of the city.

Ropeways are also one of the safest forms of transportation, and both locals and tourists utilise them since they are economical and environmentally benign. From Deorali Bazar, the Gangtok Ropeway travels to the Sikkim Legislative Assembly. 

Unquestionably one of India's most popular tourist attractions, Gangtok is renowned for its breathtaking Himalayan views, diverse flora and fauna, unique local culture, and more. The Tibetan Buddhist centre, which draws monks from all over, is one of the city's main draws as well.

If rumours are to be believed, the ropeway's construction business has made every effort to incorporate and adopt the most recent inventions and technologies to make trips on the ropeway safer and more fun. The business also carries out maintenance tasks on a daily, weekly, monthly, and annual basis.

The business that created the ropeway, Damodar Ropeways, has erected similar structures at places including Vaishno Devi, Maihar Devi, Dongargarh, and Dewas. In addition to Hirakud, Guwahati, Chitrakoot, Jammu, Pushkar, Digha, Science City, and Naina Devi, the firm also operates passenger ropeways in these cities.
