Overview

Situated at a distance of 4 km from Darjeeling Himalayan Railway, Darjeeling Rangeet Valley Passenger Ropeway is a passenger ropeway located in Darjeeling town of West Bengal . Also known as Darjeeling Ropeway, it is one of Asia's longest Passenger Ropeways and also the first Passenger Ropeway in India.

Darjeeling Ropeway was started in 1968 by the Forest Development Corporation of West Bengal . It was initially established to cater to the tea gardens at the valleys below which didn't otherwise have a simple access. Starting with just one cable car, now it was upgraded to 16 cable cars each having a capacity of six persons. It was closed in 2003 after four tourists died when the cable broken causing two cars to fell down the hill. Later it was re-opened with many safety measures in 2012.

Darjeeling Ropeway operates between the North Point in the town of Darjeeling and Singla on the banks of the Ramman River. From an elevation of 7000 feet in Darjeeling's North Point, this ropeway descends to 800 feet at Singla. Stopping at Tukver, Burnesbeg and Singla tea estates, it's an 8 km long ride which takes 45 minutes to reach Singla Bazar. One could get down at any point for a close look at the valleys and continue with the journey any time later. The journey was indeed a memorable one.

The present ropeway has been extensively modernized and visitors can now safely travel over the clouds to witness the aerial view of the luxurious tea gardens below. It is one of the best ways to experience the panoramic views that Darjeeling is so famous for. The ropeway goes over green forests, high mountains, waterfalls, flowing rivers, breathtaking valleys and lush green tea plantations.

The cable car ride was very thrilling. Had to wait in the queue for a long time but it was worth the wait. We explored the place and enjoyed a lot together. The price of the ticket was INR 200 per head. During Off Season they provide tickets till 2 pm and during season till 12 pm. Once they shut down the ticket counter, no more tickets can be availed by the tourists for the day. So, make sure you visit there as early as possible. Infrastructure could be improved.
