Bihar’s lone aerial ropeway that had become non-operational due to cable snap since February has started functioning again after a gap of 4 months. The ropeway in Rajgar city claimed to be the oldest in India will benefit tourists to reach Gridhakuta Hill where the Japanese have built a beautiful Stupa.
The Bihar government which is planning to set up another new hi-tech ropeway at Rajgir is currently awaiting the forest department's clearance. After commissioning of the new ropeway, estimated to cost Rs 8.5 crore, the old ropeway will be given heritage status along the similar lines of famous toy train in Darjeeling. While chairs in the present ropeway can accommodate only 1 person, the new ropeway will have cabins which would accommodate several people.
