ANALYTICAL STUDY OF VALUE ADDITION TO THE TOURIST PLACE BY CREATING ROPEWAY & AMUSEMENT PARK: CASE STUDY OF CHAIL (SHIMLA)”


2. INTRODUCTION TO TOPIC

Ropeways” is a general term, all inclusive, used for the various transport systems qualifying as a ropeway. A ropeway is a system for transporting materials and/or passengers in carriers suspended from or controlled by ropes. A system would qualify when a rope propels or controls carrier motion in transit on rail or other fixed support (funicular). Watching the city scape through the bird’s eye view is the dream of every traveler. Shimla from the range of best sight scenes, provide Ropeways as an excellent option to explore the mesmeric regions of Chahal. Traversing by rope way fills the soul with nature’s bounty. The destinations which are blessed with Ropeway option are as follows:

Kailasagiri Hill: A verdant hill on the northern side of the city, the Kalasagiri Hill offers spectacular views of the winding shore line and undulated city scape. Of these 100 acres on the top, 50 acres have been developed into a beautiful park. Perched at an altitude of 130 meters, this hill top park faces the Bay of Bengal and is a very popular amongst tourist and picnickers. The travelers can also take a rope way ride, as an option to behold the bird’s eye of the entire city. The rope way to the hill is one of the attractions in this city which can’ t be missed by any chance.

Pathalganga Akkamahadevi Cave: Akkamahadevi is a natural formation just above an expanse of Krishna river, about 10 km from Sirsailam. The cave is for its geological wonder, Rock arch. APTDC has constructed a ropeway to go Pataal Ganga. The rope running on the cable can really be a thrilling experience. While in cable car, the travelers, could sense the excitement of defying the gravity.

Shimla The Jagson International company, which is setting up the Rs 15-crore ropeway project for Shimla’s Jakhu Hill, may have to wait for some more time to see the project through. The government decided on Friday to seek a report from the state’s forest, tourism and also town and country planning (TCP) departments on the company’s plea to raise the height of the base tower to put up a 4-metre high roof.

Amusement and theme parks are terms for a group of entertainment attractions and rides and other events in a location for the enjoyment of large numbers of people. An amusement park is more elaborate than a simple city park or playground, usually providing attractions meant to cater specifically to certain age groups, as well as some that are aimed towards all ages.

ABOUT CHAIL:

Chail was essentially a sleepy little mountain village set in a beautiful locale till the 19th century. Its transformation began in 1893, when the Maharaja Bhupinder Singh of Patiala decided to create a new summer capital which would be ‘better’ than Shimla; all this for a bruised ego, after he was banished from Shimla for eloping with Lord Kitchner’s daughter. Lord Kitchner just happened to be the Commander-in-Chief of the British Indian Army at that time. The present Chail is spread over an area of 72 acres on three adjacent hills-the Rajgarh Hill where the Palace is built, the Pandava Hill where the old Residency ‘Snow View’ is located and where the British Resident lived, and finally the Siddh Tibba, where the temple of Baba Sidhnath is located at a height of 2226 ft. Chail is connected by road.

Amusement parks are built to attract not just the locals living within the park’s vicinity but also those from other countries. Their aim is to be a tourist destination which is why a wide variety of attractions are presented. Nowadays, amusement parks are collaborated with beach resorts to provide total pleasure to its visitors.

No study is complete in itself, however good it may be and every study has some limitations. Some of the limitations which I may face in this study are as follows:

  • The study will be restricted to the creating ropeway & amusement park only.
  • This is not an inclusive survey due to time and resource constraint.
  • Since the convenient sampling technique will be adopted in the study, hence, it may not be the representative of the universe.
  • Since the proposed sampling size is 100, so the findings and conclusions of the study may only be suggestive and not conclusive.
  • The respondents (some) may provide biased information/views due to their personal issues in an organization.
