Description:
Ropeways operate solely on gravitational force without any external power. It is inexpensive to operate and environmentally friendly, since it doesn’t consume external power. Ropeway has transformed lives of remote people because it is simple and has numerous benefits.

In Janagaon, Dhading: before it used to take 3 hours to carry vegetables down a steep path and whenever it rains, or there’s a landslide, it takes even days. But now, with this gravity ropeway, hundred kilos of vegetable take less than five minutes to cover the same distance.

Üstelik verilen bu görevi hava, trafik ve buna benzer diğer olumsuz şartlardan etkilenmeden yerine getirirler. Yani iş hayatı başta olmak üzere hayatın hemen her alanında önemli görevleri üstlenebilir ve başarıyla yerine getirebilirler. Özellikle büyük şehirlerdeki trafik kaosu ve adres konusundaki karmaşa göze alınırsa, kurye hizmetlerinden faydalanmanın bazı durumlarda zorunlu hale geleceği anlaşılabilir. Örneğin İstanbul’un bir noktasından diğer bir noktasına acil şekilde önemli bir evrak ulaştırmak gerektiğinde ya da hastanızın ihtiyacı olan ilacı acil ve güvenli bir şekilde ulaştırmak gerektiğinde, İstanbul moto kurye hizmetimizden faydalanarak sorununuza çözüm üretebilirsiniz.

    Dear LIN’s Photo Editor,
    I would like to draw your attention to the picture size of this post, when view in large, which is wrongly resized and because of this, quality of the picture got lost. Hope you will re-post the picture in correct size, allowing viewers to see its magnitude (distance of ropeway’s base station near curvy road) in sharp.

    It took me nearly 2 hours uphill hike to reach this upper station. The sack of tomatoes which these local farmers are sending downhill will reach to the base within 5 minutes without stopping anywhere. I was even thrilled by the sound of those trolleys zooming downhill in a great speed.

    Good day! 🙂

  68. Great. Wondering how the carriage is pulled up. Is it pulled by humans? I am interested to learn more on this technology. Please share the details.
