The Darjeeling Ropeway stretches from an elevation of almost 7000 feet to 800. It glides over tea gardens and offers splendid views of the surrounding hills and valleys. A round trip of about 45 mins, the boarding point is Singamari including a 10 mins' halt at Tukvar.
Beware of the long queues though. It is a tiresome job - to wait your turn.
This is one way you can be part of special diverse offerings from the nature and all in one place. From the ropeway of Darjeeling which is also known as the Rangeet Valley Passenger Cable Car, you can have mind blowing view of the valley below, see the spread of lush tea gardens, dense forests, mountain streams in their full flow, waterfalls, and the awesome snow peaks at the background. Get off at a lower station and enjoy the tea estates, walk through the tea gardens, or just relax and enjoy the view around. It's hard to find all these together in one place.
