Gangtok ropeway is in the heart of the city and very close to Do drul chorten stupa and Institute of Tibetology. It offers a superb view of Gangtok city from the sky. Its about 20 minutes ride which goes to a point near Big Bazaar and comes back. Usually there is a long queue for getting the tickets, so one needs to go as early as possible. The ticket window is open from 9.45 am to 12.30 pm and 1.30 pm to 4.30 pm.

Tickets cost Rs.110 per adult and Rs.70 for children between 3-5 years.

Take a share cab like a localite and reach this place as early as possible Only if you have one extra day. Do not cover it as part of day tour.

Please do not hire vehicle (your driver will be happy to relax and earn money) when you have to spend a waiting time of more than 2 hours for this ropeway.
