Eleven people were stranded mid-air in a cable car at Parwanoo Timber Trail in Himachal Pradesh's Solan district as rescuers began bringing them to safety one by one, a state disaster management official said on Monday.
After nearly 3 hours all the passengers were rescued.
"I will seek a report on what went wrong," Chief Minister Jai Ram Thakur said, confirming the rescue.
The passengers were being lowered onto a hill in the valley below with help of rescue equipment.
A rescue trolley was deployed on the cable to get the passengers out, according to the Solan district police chief Virendra Sharma. They were lowered, one at a time, onto a hill in the Kaushalya river valley below using harnesses.
The cable car is a feature of Timber Trail private resort, about 35 kilometres from Chandigarh, and is popular across the region. The location is at the cusp of Himachal Pradesh with Haryana, Punjab and Chandigarh.
In April, some cable cars collided on a ropeway at Trikut Hills close to Baba Baidyanath Temple.
