The ropeway ride takes you above tea estates like Tukvar. The orderly greens and terraced hills with a Buddha statue on view from above mark the journey. Occasionally the flying birds look askance at the riders in a trolley box!

Nicely maintained. Accessibility to the ropeway station is a problem because it requires a walk through a steep steps. Elders will find it very much difficult

There is a narrow road to go up by car and join the queue. No need to climb the stairs. Elderly can easily go up by car till the ticket counter. But there will be a long queue.
Is cable car open? & please let me know in which day it close for their maintainens.
