A capital town and the most popular holiday destination of Sikkim, Gangtok is frequented by travellers all over the globe due to its scenic charm and beauty. Apart from being a Tibetan Buddhist center, Gangtok is considered to be the base for hikers and trekkers for going through Sikkim’s Himalayan mountain ranges.
The starting point of the ropeway is Deorali Bazar which is situated in the heart of the city and easily accessible by most. Built in the year 2003, it connects to the Tashiling Secretariat via Sikkim Legislative Assembly.
The visitors can have a panoramic view of the full Gangtok city while taking a ride in this ropeway. The ropeway also serves to de-congest the city, as people can traverse two parts of the city using the ropeway alone.
