For all the travel junkies, we have good news for you. You will be mixing adrenaline with tasty finger-licking food.
The UT Administration is considering a sky dining proposal where the first such restaurant will be opened at a height of 165 ft with a capacity of 24 persons at any given time.
UT Adviser Manoj Parida said the project was under consideration to give a boost to the tourism sector in the city. He said they had identified three locations — Sukhna Lake, Kaimbwala village, and Leisure Valley — to start the project, but the Forest Department raised objection with the sites at Sukhna Lake and Kaimbwala. He, however, said a final decision on the terms and conditions and the site would be taken in a meeting soon.
Daman Kapoor, MD, DSH Bliss Adventures Pvt Ltd, who proposed to give a new experience to people in the city, said it would take 90 seconds or less for the foodies to reach the height and come back. Their safety and security would be the utmost priority, he said, adding that a group of visitors would stay mid-air for nearly 40 minutes. The price of the ticket would be finalized in a meeting with the UT officials, which could be in the range of Rs2,500 to Rs4,000. He said they could start the restaurant as soon as they get the approval from the Administration.
