Continued emphasis on enhanced health & safety measures –masks, temperature checks, spaced out lines, online bookings, a must for all
Jammu, June 11, 2021: Skyview by Empyrean, the recently launched hospitality venture of Empyrean Skyview Private Limited (ESPPL) is now open at Sanget-Patnitop for visitors starting today, June 11, 2021 [on weekends only- 11am until 5pm].
Skyview by Empyrean at Sanget-Patnitop is the first of its kind of leisure, lifestyle and adventure destination, located amidst bountiful nature, in the lap of the Himalayas. If a rush of adrenaline, open skies, picturesque views no matter where you stand and loads of wonderful memories at the end of a holiday or excursion are what you are looking for, this is the place you should be heading to in the coming days.
Spread over 22 acres in the panoramic Sanget valley and Patnitop in Udhampur, Jammu, Skyview is just a 90 minute drive from the Mata Vaishno Devi Shrine in Katra; it takes a 2-hour drive from Jammu on the four-lane highway, crossing four spectacular tunnels, to reach this picturesque destination; less than 45 minutes from Udhampur and just 3 km from the Dr Shyama Prasad Mukherjee [famously known as Chenani Nashri] tunnel.
Syed Junaid Altaf, Managing Director, Empyrean Skyview Projects, stated, “We look forward to welcoming visitors to this unique and holistic adventure and lifestyle destination. We have created a world-class infrastructure adhering to global standards of safety and service, offering a plethora of thrilling and exciting experiences, all available in one destination. Skyview is an ideal getaway for locals and tourists who visit nearby Katra for religious tourism and for those looking to combine or extend their stay in Patnitop.”
Skyview by Empyrean is an ideal place to enjoy the outdoors and bond with family or friends. The Skyview Gondola popularly referred to as “Patnitop Gondola ” is India’s highest [in terms of ground clearance] international class ropeway. It was ESPPL’s first step towards setting a benchmark for responsible tourism and green mobility as it eliminated a 45-60 minute road journey to Patnitop from the Shyama Prasad Mukherjee Tunnel (formerly the Chenani-Nashri Tunnel) by way of a breathtaking and picturesque gondola ride of over 2.8kms of inclined destination in/ to just 10-12 minutes.
At Skyview by Empyrean , visitors to the Gondola also get to experience an array of food & beverage offerings, global cuisine and local delicacies, shopping for mementos, as well as a host of soft adventure activities, many introduced for the first time in India, such as magic carpet, an all season dry tubing sledge, and Asia’s longest zigzag zipline at 580 metres; and curated biking excursions, hiking and supervised treks. Those looking for long weekends can also book their stay with us at Skyview Partner Experiences.
