Kedarnath Ropeway

With the raising concerns of wildlife of the Kedarnath Wildlife Sanctuary by the helicopter flights, the construction of the ropeway (rope route) for Kedarnath will look to be best choice. Govt already had carried out the survey in 2015 between Rambara-Lincholi and Lincholi-Rambara.

With the construction of the ropeways, which is to be about 11 km long, the journey from Gaurikund to Kedarnath will complete in one hour only. It will also reduce the cost by manyfold, which pilgrims are paying for helicopter service.

In fact, after the disaster in 2013, demand for ropeway for Kedarnath arises. In 2014, the then government approved the ropeway in two phases with a budget of Rs. 80 crores. After this, the tourism department invited tender twice, but no company was interested. As a result, the matter could not grow further. In 2015, the survey was conducted from Lincholi to Kedarnath and Rambara to Linchauli in 2016.

Rudraprayag District Magistrate Ranjana said that the survey work has been completed in view of the ropeway to Kedarnath. Report about this has been sent to the government. It is expected that soon the decision will be taken from government and then the construction of the ropeway will begin.
