Assam Is All Set To Start The Longest River Ropeway From April 2019

Guwahati will have the longest ropeway in India along the Brahmaputra River that will offer spectacular vistas of the landscape and allow easy transportation to and from North Guwahati. The two kilometres long river ropeway will run from Kachari Ghat to Dol Govinda Temple and the expected travel time is eight minutes.

The ropeway will not only allow people to commute on a regular basis at a short duration but will also give tourism a major boost. The tourists can relish the breathtaking sight of the legendary Brahmaputra River, Urvashi and Peacock Island as well as the Umananda Temple.



Each of the cable trolleys is imported from Switzerland and can accommodate up to thirty passengers at a time. The responsibility of the mega project is assigned to the Garaventa Group, the world’s largest ropeway manufacturing organization that will inspect the ropeway before the trial run.

Go ahead and plan a trip to Guwahati in the month of April and take the cable car ride for a wholesome experience.
