Do it if you have not done a ropeway before. The ropeway cars are not the best as most of the viewing glass scratched so you will have to open the windows. The view of the Tea Gardens below is great.

We didn't have to wait at all, straight into a car for ourselves without having to share. Not much to do down the bottom but i enjoyed the ride as we rode over the tea workers cleaning the tea fields. Worth doing.

There is a narrow road to go up by car and join the queue. No need to climb the stairs. Elderly can easily go up by car till the ticket counter. But there will be a long queue.
