Annapurna Cable Car Pvt. Ltd has finished building a cable car that will connect Sedibagar, near Fewa Lake, to Sarangkot. The cable car will run between Dashain and Tihar, with a full test run prior to commercial operation. The cable car will take you to Sarangkot in 8 minutes.
The cost of the cable car ride to Sarangkot has also been set. Nepalis will be charged Rs 600 per person. Similarly, the ticket price for Asian tourists has been set at Rs 700 per person and Rs 800 for tourists from other countries. Students and the elderly will receive a 20% to 25% discount.
The cable car will have 18 coaches, 17 for passengers and one for luggage. It can serve up to 1,500 people per hour. The Corona crisis caused a delay in the construction of the cable car. As a result, the project’s cost has risen to Rs 2 billion, up from an estimated Rs 1 billion.
