If mixing food and adventure is your cup of tea, this project is for you. The UT Administration is mulling over 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, the restaurant will hang at a height of 165 ft from a crane.

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, Managing Director, DSH Bliss Adventures Pvt Ltd, who proposed to give a new experience to people in the city, said it would take nearly 90 seconds for the visitors to reach the peak height or come back. Arrangements would be made for their safety and security, he said, adding that a group of visitors would stay mid-air for nearly 40 minutes. Kapoor said the price of the ticket would be finalised 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.
