This Jakhu Rope Way connects Jakhu Mandir and Mall Road... A short trip ride of just 6 to 7 minutes... tThe capacity of each Cabin of the Rope way is 6...The cost is Rs.250 for Adult and 200 for children ... one way... It saves time and you can also enjoy the Shimla Mountain view.. You can see variety of flowers.. also tall trees...
It is an awesome experience.
Cost is somewhat on the higher side....

A short ride up to the Jakhu temple, but good for those who never tried any ropeway earlier. Wee bit costly though.

Tourists can take an adventurous ride on Gondola and can get breathtaking view of Shimla Hills and Shimla town. The capacity of each cabin is 6 people and it takes about 6 minutes to reach Jakhu temple at the top from the Mall road. Only downside is that it is a bit expensive at Rs.250 for adult and Rs.200 for children below 12. But the experience is good and saves time in driving all the way up to the Jakhu temple by Car !!

The ropeway was my choice of descent from Jakhu because it had started raining. In this respect it was very useful.
It is a modern cable car system which appears to be of a similar standard as regards safety and maintenance, as many I have used in Switzerland. I mention this because not all cable cars I've used in India have looked as safe and well cared for.
The views from the gondola are good but they are the same views you will see from many a vantage point in the area so are not really a reason to use the ropeway.
Be aware that the second stage of your downward journey is actually by elevator and even that leaves you about 15 minutes' walk above the town centre.
In summary, it does its job well. Worth using to avoid rain, if you are footsore or just for the novelty but not likely to be a highlight of your trip.
