Use Ropeway travel for experiencing different. Trip up & down was smooth & good experience. Well arranged & maintained. Once you reach top, place is horrible except for some small games etc. Very poorly maintained.

I have been on better cable car rides before, this is definitely not one of the best. Kids may enjoy once they reach on top with a few rides but the conditions of those rides are worn out.

This ropeway is a short ride and the view is ok . Can be skipped. Do visit before 3pm to avoid the long queues. The view of the Himalayas after reaching the top was mesmerising.

This ropeway should he taken for the fun of riding a Gondola, taking high elevation photographs and playing bumpy cars. It costs ₹230 per adult and ₹150 for children aged between 3-12 years of age. At the top there is nothing. Although, to keep you...More

The ropeway ride is quite short, but the view of the Nainital lake was great. There are few commercial shops around on top once you reach there. There are few view points to check out. If the sky is clear, one can see the Himalayan...More
