As the country unlocks bit by bit, the hospitality and tourism industry is also on a gradual road to recovery. Joining the list of places that are reopening is Skyview Patnitop by Empyrean which is all set to open its doors tomorrow, October 10.
The mountain adventure destination is the first-of-its-kind in the Himalayas. It will be functional only on weekends until November 30. Keeping in mind the pandemic, during the lockdown, the site was completely revamped in order to comprehensively audit it for COVID preparedness. Skyview Patnitop now has stringent SOPs in place such as online bookings, thermal screening, social distancing, sanitisation routines and digital menus, etc.
With India’s highest ropeway in terms of ground clearance-over 65 mts, Skyview, is a one-stop destination for onsite adventure activities such as zip lining, magic carpet, tube sledging onsite and other offsite activities such as trekking, biking etc.
For those who love the outdoors, the brand is also introducing Skyview Adventure Valley with new offsite activities such as hiking, mountain biking, etc in the surrounding areas. These activities are being introduced keeping in mind the need for social distancing while being outdoors in a post COVID world.
“Empyrean’s vision of creating a world-class integrated mountain tourism infrastructure destination for tourists is now open once again to welcome visitors. Skyview Patnitop is sure to drive tourism to this unexplored paradise with its clean air, unique landscape, endemic flora and wildlife, biodiversity and the timeless local culture and history,” said Syed Junaid Altaf, Managing Director, Empyrean Skyview Projects.
The destination also has a 100% vegetarian restaurant; an indoor food court, coffee shop and street food carts to cater to varied tastes and preferences. Additionally shoppers can pick up the finest handicrafts and dry fruits which are available on site.
