On your way up to the Governor’s hill, you will pass the Vaity Resort. Here you can use the ropeway service (cablecar) to go up to Sunset Point. Suspended above hills, valleys and meandering rivers, this 15 minute ride gives you a bird’s eye view of Saputara. When planning your day bear in mind that jeeps take passengers 2 km from the main roundabout in the city up to the boarding point only between 5.30pm and 6.00pm, and that the cable car will not operate without at least twelve passengers. Ticket Rs. 40/-.
