New Cable Car Starts Operation in Bandipur

June 13: The picturesque town of Bandipur in Tanahun has officially launched its cable car service, enhancing its appeal as a tourist destination.

The Bandipur cable car began full commercial operations on Thursday, following its completion and certification.

According to Executive Director Kiran Pokhrel, the service received its TUV certificate, ensuring it meets international technology and safety standards.

The cable car had been in partial operation since April 13, but it is now fully operational. The installation and load testing were completed about a year ago.

Company Chairperson Ram Chandra Sharma confirmed that after thorough three-phase testing, the cable car received its TUV certificate for commercial operations. “We prioritized safety and quality, and only opened the cable car after all preparations were completed,” Sharma stated.

The cable car offers an adventurous experience, covering a distance of 1,700 meters from Dumre Bazaar to the temple in just 7 minutes, with a route likened to climbing a 90-degree vertical cliff.

Of the 31 cable car cabins, 21 are designated for passengers, and the remaining cabins will be used for transporting goods. The cable car operates daily from 6 am to 11 pm.

With this launch, Bandipur joins other Nepali locations such as Manakamana, Chandragiri, Pokhara, Butwal, Dolakha, and Nawalparasi in offering cable car services.
