Jiri, November 3

A cable car service, the third in the country, has come into operation in the religious and tourist spot of Kalinchowk in Dolakha.

The test operation of the cable car was conducted before Dashain. The cable car started full-fledged operation today.

With the operation of the cable car, trip to Kalinchowk has been made easier for tourists and devotees visiting Kalinchowk Bhagawati temple situated at the altitude of 3,755 metres. There are four gondolas in the cable car services where 10 persons can travel at a time, according to Kalinchowk Darshan Ltd.

Chief Executive Officer of Kalinchowk Darshan Ltd Ashok Shiwakoti shared that only one car had been brought into operation currently.

The cable car service was constructed at the cost of Rs 450 million. The ticket for cable car is priced at Rs 500 per passenger. The locals of Kalinchowk, however, can enjoy discount on the cable car service. The proprietors claimed that the cable car service was different from the one being operated at Manakamana and Chandragiri.

The operation of cable car is believed to contribute towards development of tourism in Dolakha district.
