Exciting news for travelers and pilgrims visiting the Yamunotri Shrine! According to recent reports, the Ministry of Environment and Forests (MoEF) has given clearance for the construction of a ropeway that will connect the shrine to Kharsali village, reducing the travel time from 5 hours to just 10 minutes. The 3.7 km long (aerial distance) ropeway will cover around 3.8 hectares of land and will start construction this summer, set to be completed in two years.
Efforts to build the ropeway began in 2006 and were delayed for over 16 years, but the locals of Kharsali village gave up around 1.5 hectares of land for the project. This ambitious project not only boosts tourism but also saves lives, as the challenging 5 km trek from Jankichatti to the shrine often causes health issues and casualties for those not acclimatized to high-altitude conditions, especially the elderly.
With the construction of the ropeway, pilgrims and visitors can easily reach the shrine without enduring the grueling trek, and the project is set to have a positive impact on tourism in the region. Keep an eye out for the new ropeway and plan your visit to Yamunotri Shrine to experience a quicker and more convenient journey.
