“Scary but looked surprisingly safe since recent rebuild”
Reviewed 1 December 2013

Great views of tea platations, St josephs prestigious schol and another large school halfway down.
Nice quiet tidy little workers village at bottom worth getting off for 20 min for a 10rp cup of tea and a chat.

“Gondola - A superb experience”
Reviewed 26 November 2013

The best of its kind experienced so far. A long, slow ride over the tea gardens at a very nominal rate. Awesome in terms of the path traveled..seemed like you can touch the tea plantations. Enjoyed every drop of time spent on the ropeway at an ideal slow pace.

“passage through the heaven”
Reviewed 26 November 2013

When we visited the ropeway, it was cloudy weather. It seemed like we were travelling through clouds. You can see the tea gardens beneath. Its about 30 mins for one way. Overall, a nice experience.

“In the air”
Reviewed 19 November 2013

The Ropeway being the oldest in India, startled us as it set off with a swing and jerk. But as it settled, so did we, to enjoy the lush greenery of the tea gardens below us. The emergency notice was torn so we would not know what to do in case of one, but luckily we had nothing to fear because we made it back and forth with no mishap and enjoyed the scenic beauty around us.
