Ropeway at Solang
Manali, January 21
Chief Minister Prem Kumar Dhumal will inaugurate the first ropeway-cum-ski centre at the Solang valley, 13 km from here, on January 23.
The ropeway-cum-ski centre at Solang is an initiative of the state government. The Department of Tourism awarded the contract on the BOT basis to Ski Himalayas Ropeway in public-private partnership (PPP) mode.
Joint MD of the company Amitabh Sharma said during summer, the visitors would take a ride to the top of Mount Phatru at an elevation of 3,200 metre-high and would enjoy breath-taking views with delicious food at the cafés on top. It had some amazing treks springing out at that elevation and also had a launch pad for
adventurers who would like enjoy to paragliding.
