Latest Auli Rope way Information

The operation of Joshimath-Auli Ropeway, one of the largest ropeways in Asia, was stopped in January 2023 due to Land Subsidence in Auli-Joshimath belt. In the survey conducted 8by the technical team, it has been said that many towers of the ropeway have been damaged. The survey team has suggested that the alignments of all the towers should be changed and constructed afresh. This entire process will take a lot of time. The ropeway will be constructed afresh by replacing all the towers. Only after this the ropeway will be operational.
