Annapurna Cable Car
The first cable car in Pokhara has recently completed its final stages of construction. The Annapurna Cable Car Private Limited Enterprise started the cable car project in 2010 with the support of Nippon Cable Corporation, a Japanese company. The Annapurna Cable Car connects Sedi-18, Lakeside, and Sarangkot, a distance of around 2.4 kilometers. The construction project is expected to be done 90 percent of the time and will open to the public next year. The corporation has sustained significant losses as a result of building delays caused by the Covid-19 outbreak. As a result, the project's cost has increased to almost NPR 2 billion.
