Mussoorie without a doubt is one of the most amazing hill destinations in India. It’s proximity to the capital city of Delhi and the picturesque capital of Uttarakhand Dehradun makes it an amazing yet very accessible travel destination in India. Now, Mussorie to soon have one of the longest ropeways in the world, connecting it with Dehradun is something to cherish for all travelers.

It is a dream project of the Uttarakhand Tourism department, Dehradun-Mussoorie Ropeway Project. Chief Minister Trivendra Singh Rawat laid out the foundation stone for the Doon-Mussorie Ropeway Project on March 06, 2019.

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.

Most importantly, it can be operated in rain and snow, traffic flow between the cities will considerably come down during these adverse conditions, states the government in its project proposal.
