DHARAN: Commercial operation of a zip flyer has begun in State 1.

The zip flyer starts from the takeoff station in Bhedetar and runs up to the landing station of Debhithan in Dharan-4.

Chief Minister Rai extended pledged all possible support to this new tourism product of the State.

The Worldwide Nepal Group Private Limited, which owns the project, said that the project was conceptualized some two years ago and has been constructed in around four months.

Bibas Bhandari, the proprietor of the zip flyer, said they hired expert technicians from Austria and procured high-quality equipment from the USA to operate the service.

Bhandari, who is also one of the owners of the 1,100-meter-long Dhulikhel Zip Flyer in Kabhrepalanchowk, said the maximum depth from the zip flyer line is 300 meter and the height difference between takeoff and landing station is 43 meters.

Nepali nationals are charged at Rs. 1,200, Rs. 1,500 and Rs. 2,000 respectively.

Likewise, SAARC nationals are charged 15 dollars, 16 dollars and 20 dollars.
