Reopened after a long earthquake delay, the ever-popular Manakamana cable car rises more than 1000m as it covers the 2.8km from the Prithvi Hwy to the Manakamana ridge. Riders will enjoy panoramic views from their glass gondola. Note that it is best not to return late in the afternoon as there are hour-long lines at this time.

If you are a single traveller, be sure to go to the head of the line as they will squeeze you in to spare seats left open by groups of travellers. This is not jumping the queue but encouraged.
