Chair Lift Aerial Ropeway
An aerial ropeway provides the link with a hill-top Vishwa Shanti Stupa [ World Peace Pagoda], and monasteries built by Japanese devotees atop the Ratnagiri hills.
The Rajgir chair-lift aerial ropeway is said to be the oldest ropeway in the country. It was donated by famous Japanese monk Fuji Guruji. The first person to ride on this ropeway was Loknayak Jaya Prakash Narayan!!! Presently it is said to be the biggest revenue- generating unit of the Bihar State Tourism Development Corporation (BSTDC). There are talks of commissioning of the new ropeway. The new ropeway would have cabins which would accomodate several persons, as against the existing chair-lift ropeway, which can accommodate only one person . Once new one is installed, the old one will be given the heritage status on the pattern of the famous toy train of Darjeeling.
