Dharamshala-Mcleodganj rope way is set to become a reality soon as the project gets the required clearances. A rope way between the hotspot McLeodganj, which a very much sought after tourist destination, and Dharamshala is preparing to come up as proposed by the Kangra district.
“Based on the information submitted by the project proponent, the Union Environment Ministry has given environment clearance to the Dharamsala-McLeodganj ropeway project subject to the compliance of specific and general conditions,” a senior government official said according to an NDTV report.
The Dharamshala-McLeodganj rope way project plan was first laid in January 2016 to ease the rising traffic problems in the steep, narrow roads of the Dharamshala during the peak tourist season.
