You need a vehicle to reach to the starting point. Vehicles reach right upto the starting point.

Ticket is Rs 150 per head, but worth it.

Its 20 min down ride and you come out to a place, where there is nothing much to do, just take some pictures, have some hot maggie and tea, basically relax for half an hour.. This place has huge potential to be developement - somebody please open a food court there & also provide for hygenic public toilets..

The view from the cable car is excellent - goes right up from green lush Tea gardens..

Return is 20 min..

6 people can fit in one cable car.

Ticket sale closes at 2:30pm, and last ride time to come up is at 4:00pm.

There can be large queues, so plan accordingly.

We went right at 2:30pm, were probably the last few to take tickets, but positive point was that there was no queue then, we came up by the last cable car at 4:00pm, and only 4 of us. So, it turned out to be good to reach late!

We went on the ropeway which takes you over and gives you a bird's eye view of the tea gardens and the mountains in the background. The ride was around 20*25 mins each way and most enjoyable.

We visited Ropeway on 5th March 2013, The ticket costs Rs.150/- above 5 years, a total ride time was 20 mins for going down to Singla from darjeeling singamari and 20 mins from singla to singamari. You can get down at Singla and have nice arial view of the valley. Avoid for elderly person with knee problem, coz' you have to climb up at least 70+ stairs to reach to the Ropeway Station. Ropeway Starts at 10am and closes 4pm. Ropeway is run by WB Forest Development Corp Limited in collaboration with Conveyor & Ropeway Services P Limited.
