Maula Kali Cable Cars


, ,

During our visits to Maula Kali temple in Gaindakot, Nepal, we were able to take a ride on cable car ride to reach to the temple. The construction of cable car is said to have begun in 2021 and completed in April 2023. This was fully operational and ready to serve as one of the fastest (3 to 4 minutes) routes to reach the temple.

The breathtaking scenery and atmosphere of the forest, wildlife, and warm hospitality of the cars support staff make the cable car trip a rich experience.

Nepal’s cable cars are more than just a way to get around. They are part of a rich tapestry of culture, spirituality, and awe-inspiring natural beauty that marks this Himalayan nation. They are more than just ways to get to high places; they are also bridges between the old and the new, giving tourists and pilgrims a chance to connect with the essence of Nepal’s many different landscapes and traditions. When we step out of these suspended cabins and back onto solid ground, we not only recollect the beautiful views and spiritual insights we had but also a deep appreciation for the amazing engineering feats that make these trips possible. Nepal’s cable cars are more than just a means to an end; they are life-changing experiences that leave a lasting impression on the hearts and souls of those who try to climb to the top of the world.

According to Wikipedia, Nepal’s first commercial Cable Car service commenced on 24 November 1998. “The cable car system is designed by the Doppelmayr Group of Austria, and the leading international manufacturer in the aerial ropeway industry.”

Currently, there are six cable cars that are operational in Nepal.

Of these six current cable car tours,  Manakamana and Chandragiri Hills are said to be the most popular with tourists. The Chandragiri Hills, which features a museum, old buildings, and the historic Chandragiri Fort, are widely recognized as popular destination for tourists, attracting a significant number of visitors on a daily basis.
