Ropeway Ride - Review
The Ropeway Ride in Gangtok is a real experience to be had. This awesome ride takes hardly 15 to 20 minutes but is a fun way to survey the city of Gangtok.
You have three choices when it comes to the starting point. Deorali is perhaps the most popular but Namnang and Tashiling are equally enjoyable. The lovely city, the mighty mountains that surround it and the stunning Teesta River can all be taken in at one glance through this Ropeway ride.
It is a great way to kick off your Gangtok sightseeing tour. The birds eye vantage point is sure to make you want to explore and find out more about the city. A great place to take photographs from, do certainly add this to your must do list in Gangtok.

Ropeway Ride Tour Reviews
Probably the best part of Gangtok, the ropeway which gives you a panoramic view of the city was the best part of the Gangtok city tour. At Rs. 117 per person for return ride it offers one of the most amazing view of the city in a perfect way which you won't ever forget. Its a part of the city tour where this is the last point. So, if you visit Gangtok, don't forget to enjoy this amazing view and if you are lucky enough you will be able to enjoy some into the clouds moments which was a little scary but I loved it... check out the full video. - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EntMAcHjPgE
After taking many rides on cable cars across the country I can tell you this one is better maintained by the administration. Good safety procedures are practised here. A sufficient big cable car which can accommodate 20 persons. The ride takes down till deorali and back. The view from the car is awesome. You can see all of Gangtok and the valleys adjacent. A wonderful experience.
The only thing is lack of buses after 9pm, no night bus in this area. But this is the only option to get my place by transit, quite satisfied about it. Keep doing well.
Ropeway is best to watch the whole city at once. Charge for the same is 115 per person. And at a time 8 9 people can go from one side to another. It's walking distance from MG road
It was not that wow...coz not maintained properly...we can't step out after reaching to next point as immediately they will drop u to the same point as it was started...we have to stand in that box...no place for sitting... That was about the services they provide.. The view is awesome, as we can see entire Gangtok from that height....so coz of view it's the value for money.
Nice experience n scenic view from rope way is superb .
