Tourists often have to struggle with jams along the 35 km distance from Doon to Mussoorie. Not only this, many tourists return from halfway due to the jam during the season and snowfall. Lack of parking spaces in Mussoorie also make the tourists suffer. Given these problems, the tourism department has made a ropeway scheme. From Purkhul village of Dehradun, to Mussoorie Chowk, about 5 km ropeway which can accommodate up to 10 people from one side.
Through foreign Cable detachable Gondola technology will help tourists reach Mussoorie from Doon in just 18 to 20 minutes from. On this Ropeway project, the tourism department has demanded Grants under the Scheme of Quality Gap Funding with the help of Central Tourism Ministry. After approval of Finance of Rs 400 crore Ropeway Project DPR, the tourism department will invite tenders.
The target of completing the tender process has been kept in May. After this, the ropeways towers will be made.
