About Cable Car Ride in Gangtok

Gangtok is the place where you can get memorable adventurous station and worship places. Gangtok is the combination of unforgettable things and worship temple. Cable car ride is one of the greatest attractions in Gangtok and should not be missed. It's a double-cable zig back ropeway which is operational since December 2003. It is near Sikkim Assembly building. Good overview of Gangtok.

This is a must see at Gangtok as tourists can have a breathtaking view of Gangtok town during this ride. Whether the young couple, children or any aged member of your family this is the memorable ride for everyone. Each cable car can carry up to 24 passengers. There are no seats in the cable car, so you need to stand.  They do not always wait until the cable car is full. But during peak tourist season, there are usually long queues and each ride gets full before it starts.

With this ride, you get full joy with amazing views of Kanchenjunga snow peaks. It is the best way to take pictures of the high valley and hill area. You will find a small glass pane on either side of the cable car which you can slide and take clear pictures through that. From that, you can capture the beauty of Sikkim. It is a very safe way to take pictures without any insecurity of fall down from the car.

There are terminal stations to the ropeway and riders can choose to start ride from any of the convenient points in Tashiling, Namnang or Deorali. One can enter from any point and return to the same point after touching other two points. The entire journey of cable car provides a spectacular view of Gangtok market, valley, and assembly hall of state of Sikkim on its 15 to 20 minutes journey. The lowest station is at Deorali near Institute of Tibetology. The whole of Gangtok township and if you look down below where you started, you will see the Deorali bazaar. These three stations give a different view from each other. Derail gives the view of Deorali Bazaar, Tashiling gives the view of worship places and Namnang gives the view of cities. Most important another side they give the full view of Kangchenjunga peak. From the road, a stairway leads up to the ticket counter. There is a waiting room at the same level, wait your turn and then take an elevator to the cable car station about 100ft above. Look down and you can see a river flowing some 3500 feet below.

    • Trip to Gangtok - Gangtok - Darjeeling

      Travel agent (deepraj)was very helpful and always reachable . Hotel quality cud have been better for 4 star hotels. Cab cud be given for full day. Like if i m going from pelling to gangtok. So once we reach gangtok at 2 pm driver will drol n leave n come next day. N i ask ant to go to market for 2-3 km then i have to gire another cab. They could proved cab on rental basis for full day n driver can stay with us n if we want to go market n shop 3-4 km he can go. It very inconvenient after taking the full package of 7 days then also we have to hire separate cab. Nathula pass

    • Trip to Gangtok - Gangtok - Darjeeling

      I must thank Sai tours and travels for the amazing experience i had during my solo trip to darjeeling- sikkim from 6th to 12th aug 2019. I had multiple issues from the time of booking however it was smoothly arranged and sorted by Mr Shivasish. I also had an amazing driver/guide Mr Binod who went an extra mile to make my birthday a memorable one. They made sure i had the best experience in every place i visited and also ensured i was safe and comfortable throughout.I celebrated my brithday there in a monastery and they were so thoughtful to get me a lovely cake and some candies to be distributed to the children in the monastery. Unlike regular tours and travels, they ensured there is a human touch to the services provided which in the end gave a high level of customer satisfaction. They look into the issues highlighted seriously and rectifies it as soon as possible to ensure customers and well taken care of. I will strongly recommend their service to any traveler especially if its your first time and you are not quite sure of whereabouts. I am very sure they can not only create a good and safe trip but also a memorable experience that you would cherish. gangtok , darjeeling

      Hi all this is my first trip with TT and expected a lot . Thought this trip would be a memorable in my life but unfortunately its not , because of poor coordination , planning and communication . I missed few places like natulla pass and few others . Travel agent by name DEEPAK was very rude . Accomodation was not upto the mark as there were poor facilities like lack of hot water , door hinges were dangling and food issues . Travel agents ( Neeraj and deepak ) dont answer / reply to the calls and they didnt communicate propley. Shivani was helpful through watsap Rest all omg ...... 1. Driving ......really appreciate drivers .A big applause 2. Yumtung valley 3. Zero point 4. Lachung

      Hotel Royal Sarvara in Darjiling was not so good as compared to rest of the hotels. Yumthang valley in Lachung was great. The landslides on the way back from Lachung to Gangtok was truoblesome but it was a great experience with a dash of adventure involved thus included in best memories.
