Thapa: I see you walked down to Chitlang 3 or 4 years ago. Did you see any signs of the 1964-1991 Ropeway? I looked at all your pictures and didn't see any. I also looked for signs of the towers in the satellite images all the way south to Hetauda, and did not see any. Max

Max: Yes, I did. There are still some sections prominently sitting atop hill. That actually gives you a sort of pain seeing them quietly looking over you..that was so much a part of our childhood fascination.

The ropeway passses over Kulakhani reservoior, which I did not photograph unfortunately. I shall send you couple of photos of the remaining lines. Nexe week I am biking over Chandragiri hill and follow a trail over to Bajrabarahi before climibing to Daman from Palung. I am sure I shall encounter part of it on the way.

(But, who knows, you may be right..they may have already dismantled it in past years since I visited)
