We had our half day short trip here,enjoying our "village" trekking trial , and the scenic view. It'll be better if we could come here on February during the apricot blossom season!

If you like nature, cold weather and a sip of coffee on the mountain, then you have to pay a visit. It is good for you to relax after the tiring trip in Taipei/ Taiwan

A trip in itself but the walk around and a bite at a café will complete the experience. Take a half day if possible.

I quite liked Maokong mountain and it offered a scenic view and even better, yummy traditional taiwanese food! It was the ideal tourist 'package'- food, great view, fun transport, traditional temples e.t.c. It was really cool and it was a fun experience!

Riding up from Taipei Zoo was easy. Probably I was there on a week-day. If you are not rushing, line up for the glass gondola but we pass that. Weather was hazy so can't really said we had the best view. You can stop over at the temple if you are in to place of worship. Up on the mountain,... More

I would use the gondola as part of a visit to the mountain. There are a variety of hikes. The temple is worth a visit. It is interesting to see the tea farms and there are a lot of tea houses to choose from for eating and drinking tea. There are beautiful views of the city.

Awesome trip on the Gondala and fantastic views of the city. Walked back down to the Temple which was a bad choice on such a hot and humid day but great experience and fantastic views.

The last stop of the Maokong gondola, at the maokong mountain offers a very nice place to stroll around or jog. There is also some temples to visit and a lot of restaurants to have some good food and locally picked and produced tea.

Buy the ticket of the gondola with its bottom glass, seeing thru the ride up to the Maokong mountain the forest below it, a half way stop at Longshan temple. When reaching at the top, take a walk, lot of tea houses along, stop by and relax with cold or hot tea.
