“Should be the number one attraction!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 31, 2013

We just loved the views from the cable car over the tea estates. It was very well-priced with a small queue and a little tea stall at the side. There was lots of space in the cable car and we had a tranquil, peaceful ride through the valley - I can't recommend this highly enough.

“waste of money”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2013

you just move to n fro in a glass box with so many people at a time no place to move. Then they don't let you get down just to catch a breeze. Whats the use in spending so much???

“You simply can't afford to miss this.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 27, 2013

To all those photographers with fancy SLRs and all those nature/solitude lovers, this is the best place to fill up your camera's memory card. The ropeway starts near St.Joseph's, Darjeeling and goes all the way down near Singtam Tea Estate. The total duration of a round trip is around 40 minutes. The view from the ropeway car is simply out-of-this-world. Although the ropeway has a tragic history, the recent renovations have ensure good safety measures and well behaved staff. The tickets are very under-priced for an eye treat like this. Include this in your intinerary for sure!

“Wow this is Fantastic”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 16, 2013

I can say this is the best Ropeway for scenic view in the country.Marvelous and spectacular views greet us within moments of the journey.After a while, excepting the sounds of Birds and insects with views of tea plantations and Mountains,no word can explain this.

Its just Wonderful
