India’s longest passenger ropeway across a river unveiled in Guwahati

India’s ‘longest’ passenger ropeway across a river was unveiled in Guwahati
The 1.82 km bi-cable jig-back ropeway connects a forested campus near the Kamrup (Metro) Deputy Commissioner’s office in the city on the southern bank of the Brahmaputra and a hillock behind the Doul Govinda temple in North Guwahati on the other.
The ropeway passes over the mid-river Peacock Island that houses Umananda, a medieval Shiva temple.
