Tourism minister Manohar Ajgaonkar at state assemble revealed that apart from rope way, services like zip-line and sky diving are also there on the plates.
The ropeway will connect the serene river banks of Panaji and Reis Magos that lies at the two ends of the Mandovi River.

GTDC (Goa Tourism Development Corporation) has already executed an agreement with Royal Rides Private Limited,” Ajgaonkar said in a written reply.
