Sikkim CM Pawan Chamling, laid the foundation stone of the Ropeway and Support Facilities for the Bhaleydhunga Skywalk Project at Dhapper in Yangang recently. Bhaleydhunga Skywalk Project will be the world’s highest skywalk built at a height of 10,300 ft with world class infrastructure and will be the second of its kind in Asia and the first in India.
With this world class skywalk project, they hope to attract tourists to the State. ‘Skywalk Project will also bring an overhaul in the economic and livelihood development of the region as it will unfurl and create an array of new business opportunities and services catering mostly to tourism and hospitality sector,’ Chamling shared, adding, ‘Yangang will definitely become one of the popular tourist destinations of the world. Starting from the sale and purchase of local organic produce to employment opportunities, the project will hugely benefit the people of Sikkim in general and the people of Yangang in particular.’
He also said, ‘Ropeway and proposed Skywalk Project at Bhaleydhunga is very close to my heart as it is being built in my native village.’
