Don't miss the cafe! You can have mango fruit tea served in a teapot for 4 cups big, and chocolate or cheese cake - $300, very nice flavor… I love the tea!! The gondola is only $50 for a person. Great mountain view, feel Spring wind, just relax for a hour.

Maokong mountain is a very popular place for Taipei locals to enjoy tea culture, food and good scenery. It is situated in Mucha (木柵), Wenshan District (文山區). You can reach by taking the Maokong Gondola lift (貓空纜車)from the Taipei Zoo up to Maokong in the mountain. The 4.3 km line has 4 stations, and the fares for ordinary cabins are... More

Love this place, it is very special and peculiar. etting there with the gondola over the tea plantations is a very funny experience. At the top of the Mountain you will find a lot of Tea houses, where you can enjoy a wonderful cup of tea and also nice restaurants. The views are very nice.

We took the gondola up which was amazing and had fantastic views. When we got to the top we had trouble navigating the area and finding a tea house.

Went here twice while in Taipei via the Gondola. The views were stunning and it was a great escape from the heat and hustle of the city. Its hard to believe you can be so close to Taipei's bristling energy and be so far away.

Maokong is a nice place to relax and have your (afternoon) tea! Accessible by MRT (Taipei Zoo MRT Wenhu/Brown line exit 2), Maokong is best travelled by Maokong gondola. Gondola fare costs 50NT one way (EasyCard can be used). I suggest to go there on weekdays when there is no queue for the gondola. On weekends, queue can take 30... More

The gondola is so much fun - it makes multiple stops and provides an excellent view. We were told we would be able to see the animals at the zoo as we passed above them - we did not see any animals. You can get a ticket to the gondola along with your subway ticket. The stop is quite close... More

If you're up for a good hike and have a half a day to spare I would recommend hiking up the mountain. Using directions I found online from a different website, I hiked up the mountain by the National Chengchi University. If you're using Google Maps use "Affiliated High School of NCCU Taipei" in the search box to find the... More

Sure worth a visit. Only a train ride away, and less than us$2 to get up! Only problem is that the queue can be a bit long, so come prepared to wait it out. But, I'd rather the long queue that exorbitant prices :)
