Thw Guwahati Metropolitan Development Authority which has executed the projects said that the ropeway is 1.82-km-long and the distance can be covered in 8-9 minutes. There are two cabins and each can carry 32 passengers at a time. However, due to the Covid-19 pandemic, only 15 people will be allowed for the time being.
