never stop wondering.
never stop wandering.
Started by PM Chandra Shumsher in 1922 a 22km long cargo Ropeway from Dhorsing-Chisapani-Chandragiri hills passed into the Kathmandu valley. Later was extended to a 42 km line reaching Hetauda in 1964.
In its glory days, the 42Km Hetauda-Kathmandu cargo ropeway/ghiring used to run,10 hours and transport 22 tons of goods every day. The construction of Highways caused the ropeway to lose its charm and it stopped its operation in 1994. It did serve the valley for the last time by transporting vegetables and other food products when the flood washed away both part of the Tribhuwan and Prithivi Highway in 1993 AD.
