On many tea houses on the mountain , and if you are a Chinese Tea connessiour , (pardon for the spelling) you will like it here. Good view, nice tea and cool mountain air. It gives you the feeling as if you are in a totally different world. A world of its own, a divine world

The best way to go is to drive up on your own and avoind the gondola. Find a little tea shop in one of the valleys with a nice view, sit down, and spend the afternoon sipping some of Taiwan's best tea.

The 4km long ride with the gondolas is nice and allows a spectacular over parts of the city (Taipei 101 tower in sight, most of the time). Take the ride in day time, and get one of those cristal cabins (gondola with glass floor, to watch the vegetation below). The tea houses up on the hill came across as tourist... More

Since it was too early for diner, we decided to ride a round trip on the Maokong gondola. It was not very crowed and 4 of us get to ride the first part without other people. The ride was long, and had many stops. Once we get to the temple stop, they directed 4 other people join us, which made... More

We went on 11 Nov 2014 (Tues), reaching around 2pm. It wasn't crowded but do take note of the vehicles as they can drive quite fast uphill. There is a small food court with a few stalls (selling drinks, sausages, soups, fried noodles etc.) right outside the Gondola station. Turn to the left and you will find stalls along the... More

Took a gondola up maokong which was a pleasant ride. However, the experience in the mountain itself was bad. Coming out from the gondola you can see food stalls selling Taiwanese food. Walk further and there are more tea houses. It is a very long walk to the tea exihibition and promotion Centre. Free tea is provided for drinking. The... More
