The 10-minute cable-car ride takes the visitor to the temple of Goddess Manakamma who is believed to have the power to fulfill wishes. The temple of Manakamana lies 125 km to the west of Kathmandu.

You don’t have to be in Switzerland to ride cable cars. The cable car in Nepal takes you up on a spiritual adventure to the abode of Manakamana, the wish-fulfilling goddess. Even if you have no wishes to make (assuming that you have got it all or you not a believer), this place offers a unique look into Nepali people’s faith in the Goddess Manakamana. The Manakamana temple overlooks terraced fields, and the Trishuli and Marsyangdi river valleys. The hilltop (1302m) also offers a vantage point for taking in the breathing view of the Manashlu-Himanchuli and Annapurna massifs to the north.

Venerated since the 17th century and commanding royal patronage, Manakamana is located south of the Gorkha historic town of Gorkha and 6 km north of Mugling. In the past, millions of pilgrims used to do the long arduous trek up to the hilltop. Many still do.

From the cable car station in Cheres, you ge to Manakamana in 10 minutes flat or less. The ride takes over the distance of 2.8 kilometers. With 31 passengers and 3 cargo-cars, each with a seating capacity of 6, the system has the overall capacity of handling 600 persons per hour. The adventure is in getting your wishes fulfilled.

Manakamana temple lies 12 km south of historic town Gorkha and located on a prominent ridge (1302m) overlooking the river valleys of Trisuli (south) and Marshyandi (west). The unique location of the place is dramatized during winter when the ridge appears as island above the sea of morning mist. People believe Manakamana Devi fulfils the wishes of her devotees, thus called the wish fulfilling deity. At the cable car station Kurintar there are some resorts, which serve tourists.
