Nepal government is planning to develop and operate cable cars in Pokhara under the public private partnership (PPP) approach. The proposed cable-car venture will run from from Phewa Lake to World Peace Stupa, Pumdi Bhumdi stretching 1.5 km. The government has already invited expressions of interest (EoI) from eligible national and international firms for development and management of a cable car service in Pokhara valley. At present the only cable car service in operation in the country is the Manakamana Cable CarService which ferries pilgrims to the hill top shrine of Hindu goddess ManakamaMai in Gorkha.
We find it very important that our travelling contributes to the preservation of Nepal’s fragile and beautiful nature. We encourage Kipling Travels and Explore Himalaya to start working with different tea-houses / lodges and hotels on sustainability initiatives- like waste recycling, solar heating etc.
