THIS is the terrifying moment tourists dangled 1,000ft above ground by a rope after two cable cars got stuck above a forest.
Fifteen people were left suspended in the air above the Parwanoo Timber Trail in India’s northern Shivalik mountain ranges due to a technical issue.
Four people were trapped in the uphill trolley and 11 people inside the downhill trolley.
The group were stranded for more than an hour before emergency services arrived to the scene.
In horrifying footage, two members of the group can be seen being evacuated from the cable car from a rope.
A person appears to be in a harness as they cling to the rope while it is lowered to the valley floor.
The person looks tiny compared to the vast green sea of trees in the forest behind them.
In another video taken from inside the cable car, a woman passenger is heard saying she’s worried about using the rope, the Independent reported.
She said: “We can’t go down with the help of rope. We are old.
“We won’t be able to get down and the authorities have been unable to take any action.”

The Timber Trail sent a technical team to review the situation while local police overlooked the situation.
Crews from the National Disaster Response Force (NDRF) were also sent to the scene.
Onkar Chand Sharma, principal secretary of the Himachal Pradesh state government’s national disaster management agency, told news agency ANI the group has now been rescued.
He said: “A total of 15 persons were stranded in two cable cars. Four people in the uphill trolley and 11 in the downhill trolley.”
The passengers are believed to have been visiting from Delhi, the capital.
Their spine-tingling experience came after a man allegedly plunged to his death from a rescue helicopter after a horror cable car crash.
The unknown victim was being airlifted from Trikut Hills in the Deoghar district, India, where a cable car crash had claimed three lives and left 50 others stranded in the air.
In a shocking clip, the man can be seen swinging from a rope while a helicopter team attempt to pull him in.
