History

On your way up to the Governor’s hill, you will pass the Vaity Resort. Here you can use the ropeway service (cablecar) to go up to Sunset Point. Suspended above hills, valleys and meandering rivers, this 15 minute ride gives you a bird’s eye view of Saputara. When planning your day bear in mind that jeeps take passengers 2 km from the main roundabout in the city up to the boarding point only between 5.30pm and 6.00pm, and that the cable car will not operate without at least twelve passengers. Ticket Rs. 40/-.

The Ropeway is a congregation of cable cars, which are connected through a rope. The cable cars travel at an altitude of around 25 to 30 ft. This service can be found on the way to the Sunset Point and enables tourists to move around the entire town.


Providing a bird’s eye view of the entire city, this provision is also suited for old people and physically handicapped. Within 15 minutes, visitors can reach to the Governor’s Hill. The cable car can carry up to 12 people at one time. The Ropeway can also carry tourists to places like Sunset Point and Sunrise Point.


A ten minute ride straddles the valley to the Sunset Point. The comfortable couple is safe and ideal for a family. The view from the halt midway is breathtaking. Unforgettable on a moonlight night. Refreshments available at Sunset Point at the Vaity Restaurant.
