Annapurna Cable Car  organized a 'Partners Meet' in Kathmandu. The event brought together the country's leading travel agencies and the company's business partners. 

During the event, the company also extended an invitation to interested parties to join forces in strengthening Nepal's tourism sector. In addition to fostering existing partnerships, the company revealed its plans to install a 48-feet tall idol of Panchamukhi Ganesh at its top station premises.

"The program has strengthened our existing partnership and encouraged us to welcome new partners," Kalu Gurung, chairman of Annapurna Cable Car said. "We believe that this collaboration will contribute significantly to the development of the tourism sector not only in Pokhara but in Nepal as a whole."

Likewise, Sanat Neupane, independent director of Annapurna Cable Car, urged for cooperation to establish Pokhara as well as Nepal as a premium tourist destination. "The Annapurna Cable Car is a safe, comfortable and unprecedented mode of travel," Neupane said. "The breathtaking views of the lake, city, green forest, sunrise and beautiful snow range seen while climbing and reaching Sarangkot through the cable car will be an unforgettable experience for everyone."

Annapurna Cable Car plans to unveil the Panchamukhi Ganesh idol during the Shivaratri festival in mid-February. "Very soon general people can own stakes in the company as we are planning to launch an IPO. Likewise, we are also starting nighttime operations," he added.
