Said to be the oldest ropeway in India, the Rajgir ropeway line is a wonderful excursion in the cradle of nature. It is the only ropeway in existence in the state of Bihar. The single person seater rope line is a thrilling adventure that leads you all the way to the top of the scenic Ratnagiri Hill which houses the famous Vishwa Shanti Stupa, also known as the Peace Pagoda. The chairlift ropeway rises to a height of over 1000 feet from the ground level and is a thrilling ride to undertake. The area falls under the Pant Wildlife Sanctuary which provides unmatched views of the surrounding forest area. The ropeway gives access to the Buddhist memorabilia and constructions of a bygone era on the hilltop, coupled with picturesque views, there's nothing more you can ask for!
Rajgir's location is set in a valley so that you can expect beautiful sightseeing views all around you. The place is richly associated with Buddhism and its practices, rituals and culture. Plans have been implemented to list the Rajgir ropeway as an important heritage site by the Bihar government under the suggestion of the Bihar State Tourism Development Corporation (BSTDC). It has been an important pilgrimage site for Buddhists, Hindus and Jains alike for centuries. There are several other landmarks on the hill top that possess great religious, historical and cultural significance. The important city of Rajgir has long been in historical records that date back thousands of years, finding its presence in age-old Mahabharata, Buddhist and Jain texts and the Rajgir ropeway is just another fantastic addition to your places to visit.
