How to Reach spots for Cable Car Ride

Traveling in Gangtok is not complete without riding a cable car. This ride is 1 km long and operates for 30-minutes. Gangtok ropeway enables an astounding view of the magnificent Gangtok town. Enjoying the sceneries of this town at higher elevation is an awesome experience. Watching the snow clad Kanchenjunga peaks, mighty valleys and a dazzling river flowing 3500 feet below is a once in a lifetime experience. There are three stops in this cable car ride. The bustling market of Deorali bazaar is the boarding point of the cable car ride. The next station is Namnang and the top most station is in Tashiling next to the Secretariat. You can get down at any point and go for sight-seeing in that place.  But it is recommended to take the two way trip to enjoy the complete views of this spectacular town. The ticket is charged for two way trip irrespective of the stop you get off. The view is especially spell bounding on the return trip of the cable car. The colourful Gangtok market, stupendous State Assembly hall and many more hot spots of Gangtok can also be viewed during the cable car ride. You can take pictures of the beautiful views of Gangtok town by sliding the glass panel on either side of the Cable car.

    • Trip to Sikkim - Gangtok - Darjeeling

      It was a good trip however I would say the hotel provided were ok ok kind. it was quite costly In terms of heaters not being provided in package which was surprising. Overall cost wise it was costly trip when considering 21500 RS.

      We had a great time with Trip2Hills and travel triangle , They are literally the best. They take the best care of you and all their services are are really good. we felt completely safe under their guidance. In spite of an extreme unexpected weather , the driver Mr. Pawan made sure we reached the destination safe and sound, I really appreciate him and we are grateful to him for his service. I would highly recommend to travel with trip2hills as there is literally nothing that you need to be worried about and every thing is taken care for you. Trip Manager Mr. Deepak was also very helpful and responsive. Thank you Trip2hills and Travel Triangle for making this an awesome trip .

      Trip was very good and the journey from pickup point bagdogra airport to drop is very comfortable and the drivers are also very friendly... Just got disappointed by Nathula permit My best trip was chaungu lake.. Very very nice and un immaginable view of the nature.... and the hotel Lindsay chu die. Adventure trip was darjeeling. The roads are too narrow and very steep

      Travel triangle is good platform to get quotes from the different vendors .Nice policies.. but TT team will call and make you to book from quotes after you book the tour then they will not take any interest . Fortunately my operator was i m himalaya they are very professional in their work never dissapoint even for resceduling the plan at end momment they done it without any hiccups. Changu lake.

      Travel agent should have first handedly cleared up the dues with the hotels rather then creating a tiresome and waiting process for the guest. Also best time to visit should have been advised sincerely, the must visit spots couldn't be experienced because of the bad weather. The cab arrangements were good and the drivers were very friendly and cheerful. The tour package was bit overpriced. Overall a good package that could have been a lot better
