The proposal for India’s first Funicular trolley was sanctioned in January 2010 only. And in 2018, exactly after eight years, it is now all set to be launched on March 4. The main aspect behind this is to facilitate the pilgrims visiting the famed Saptashrungi Devi hilltop temple in Nasik, Maharashtra.

Funicular Trolley

The concept of funicular Trolley is very common in many of the international mountain resorts and villages of Switzerland, Russia and many other places. This will cover entire Saptashrungi Hills in the picturesque north end of Western Ghats to the temple atop which is approximately up the 1,400 meters tall. This trolley will be having a 330 feet elevation that will facilitate all the pilgrims reaching the top of the hill within a time span of just three minutes, which is approximately 1-2 hours climb as of now.

Fee for the ride 2

Fee for the ride

The initial fee for the ticket has been decided to be Rs 80 for adults. And for the senior citizens, physically handicapped, and children below the age of 12 years, it would be only Rs 40. Since the temple gathers a crowd of four million pilgrims every year, therefore the expected revenue of this trolley is expected accordingly. However, the construction of this modern Funicular Trolley has been a new as well as a challenging experience for entire Maharashtra government, as this appears to be a unique concept having no precedent in India.
