“Smooth ride !”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

The ropeway travels over tea gardens and gives a view of the Kanchenjunga. Each cabin can accommodate a maximum of six persons and is well maintained. The tickets are for a to and fro ride that can be split at the lower end.
However, their isn't much of interest at the lower end and the ride can be continued back without a stop over.
Depending on the time of the year, the queue's can get really long taking upward of an hour to get your turn - so plan accordingly.

“Excellent bird's eye view of the city”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2013

This one is loved by kids and surprisingly the adults would also like it.

The ropeway is an excellent way to appreciate the beauty of this city. You get to see the woods area, hills, the state legislature and the new modern buildings in the city from a height.

They should do something to improve the amenities in the ropeway complex.
