I had only heard of Vishwa shanti stupa as an amazing place to visit but had no idea that reaching there requires a ropeway ride. The stupa is at a hill and there is walking way to the stupa but it will take you hours....More

Found the place very peaceful with divine surroundings. Visited the site on 22 Nd April 2018. The connecting hills all around are very beautiful. One of the most peaceful places.

The ride to the Stupa is unsafe and scary on the old obsolete cable chairs over rocky hills. I will not like to do it again. People just jump onto the chair as it is moving without any proper protection.

The ropeway is the best way to go up to the vishwa shanthi sthoopa. For elderly people with knee pain, even this is quite strenuous. Even after getting down from the cable car, one has to climb a few steps.

It is unbelievable to be able to visit such a place, where the Buddha gave the Prajnaparamita Sutra. I couldn't believe I was there! It's magic! I advise you to read the full Prajnaparamita Sutra before going there if you have time. If you don't,...More
