Talking a cue from the popularity of the ropeway in Darjeeling among tourists, the state government is planning to introduce ropeway at four other tourist locations — Ayodhya Hills in Purulia, Mukutmanipur in Bankura, Mirik in Darjeeling and Gajoldoba in Jalpaiguri.
The projects will be carried out in three phases. In the first phase the consultant will prepare the report on techno commercial viability report. They need to keep in mind the tourism potential and how to make it sustainable. They will also have to keep in mind the ecological aspect and architectural design. Optimum route and alternative alignments for ropeway will be suggested along with locations for terminal stations. The project cost and ride cost will be worked out.
In phase two, detailed project reports will be prepared mentioning the technical details of alignment and the project analysis to make it viable. In phase three, the projects will be executed in engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) mode.

“The ropeways are being planned to attract more tourists. The potential of these tourist spots are not fully utilised. Since these locations are near the border they have the scope to attract tourists from across the border. Ropeways can help boost footfall in these beautiful places as these areas are untapped and have good road links,” the official said.

At the Ayodhya Hills. the ropeway can be connecting between the lower dam and the upper dam and offer to visitors a stunning view of the hills and water from the cable car. Similarly, visitors at Mukutmanipur can travel across the huge water body and can watch the people taking boat rides in the dam.
The ropeway at Gajoldoba is aimed to give fillip to the economy of the place as it is a dream project of chief minister Mamata Banerjee. The CM plans a mega tourism hub at Gajoldoba located on the west of Teesta river and close to the Baikunthapur forest. The Gajoldoba dam is home to migratory birds in winter. More than 200 acres had been demarcated for the mega tourism hub.

Earlier, the tourism department had also planned ropeways in Sunderbans and in Buxa, but it is yet to take place.
