Tourists left dangling from a rope while stranded in a cable car 1,000 feet above a mountain

Tourists on a cable car high above the Shivalik Mountains in India had to exit their carriage and scramble 1,000 feet into the air to reach safety.

However, some passengers, especially kids and the elderly, were unable to descend the rope and were stuck in the broken gondola for more than an hour.

A technical team from Timber Trail, the cable car operator, was eventually dispatched while nearby police kept an eye on the situation.

The National Disaster Response Force (NDRF) sent a team to the area as well.

15 people were stranded in two cable cars, according to Onkar Chand Sharma, principal secretary for disaster management in Himachal Pradesh. 11 people were in the downhill trolley while 4 were in the uphill trolley.

To save the remaining members of the group, authorities used a second cable car.

In a video taken from inside the cable car, terrified tourists debate whether it would be risky to descend the rope.

“We can’t go down with the help of rope,” one elderly woman was heard saying. We’re old. The authorities have been powerless to do anything, and we won’t be able to descend.

By Monday evening (June 20), all of the passengers—who were reportedly tourists from the capital Delhi—had been saved, according to officials.
