Mussoorie without a doubt is one of the most amazing hill destinations in India.

This will be one of the world’s longest ropeways. It’s going to shorten the one-hour hill ride connecting Dehradun to Mussoorie to just 15 minutes from Purkul village as the base camp at Dehradun.

It is definitely going to be a game-changer for tourism in the state and especially Mussoorie. The ropeway when finished is going to increase the tourist’s footfall drastically. Considering that it is capable of transporting between 1000 to 12000 people at any given time, it is going to ease the traffic and make way for more tourists arriving in Mussoorie.

Also, to streamline the transportation process, the starting point of the ropeway will be connected to main connectivity hubs like ISBT, railway station and the airport.
