The itinerary of every visitor of Gangtok must include the ropeway or the cable car, located in the Deorali market. The ropeway provides one of the most breathtaking views of Gangtok against the backdrop of the lush green forests on the slopes of the Hills and the magnificent Himalayan skyline, including Mt. Kangchenjunga, which truly makes it a sight to behold.
The ropeway pauses in between for about 15 minutes, so that you can take pictures, and bask in the serene beauty of the Sikkim Himalayan Mountains. The ropeways can generally be a little crowded, because of the rush of all the tourists, but once you enter the cabin, and the car begins to move, the sheer magnificence of the scene is bound to make you spellbound, as you look upon the stream flowing beneath you, combined with the snowcapped Himalayan Mountains, and just look upon the beauty that nature has to offer.
