Very scenic view around the mountain. A long ride to Mao Kong Station so you can slowly enjoy the view. Just a little warm and stuffy in the cabin during the summer.

If you are going to be visiting the vicinity anyway, probably due to the Taipei Zoo, and you still have time to spare, why not just go and try riding this gondola so you can check out Zhinan Temple (one of the stops of the gondola) as well as the restaurants and cafes when you get off Maokong Station.

I was there with my girlfriend from Hong Kong. A bee got in through the open window and she panicked. Way to high to panic. Memorable. It was a beautiful view though and nice tea places at the top.

This is a great thing to do if you go to the zoo. But I recommend taking the ride to the end of the line. When you arrive at the top there is a small town where you can hike and maybe try some special local dishes made with tee leaves. The views get better near the top of the... More

I am afraid of heights but I surprisingly enjoyed it. You would see an awesome view of the greener side of Taipei. Very convenient to go to. Hello Kitty lovers would love it here since Hello Kitty is everywhere! However, it was cold we reached the top since it was still winter. So don't forget to wear something that fits... More

Just a normal cable car ride...nothing to shout about. Just wish the cable cars were air-conditioned. It was hot inside

Liked: - Just the thrill of being suspended hundreds of feet above a tropical jungle overlooking mountains, temples, and the busy city in the distance - Very quiet and scenic - Convenient to use your MRT "EasyCard" - Nice little market when you get to the Maokong - Connected to the Taipei Zoo, so definitely make that part of your...

it takes about half an hour to get on top. the Gondola's are all glass so you can see around you. however they are extremely hot inside. i had a great time both during and when i was on top. little shops, restaurants & tea shops were located on top. scenery was amazing.

It was a really good trip, worth queuing for! But take a cold drink and a sun umbrella it can be really hot waiting!

Queues were long, but we went on a Sunday. It is worth getting the crystal bottom carriage - told queues are much longer but there turned out to be much faster. Nice ride with incredible, different views of Taipei city and its surrounding mountains. Village at the top is cute. We strolled around, absorbed the Taipei people out enjoying their... More
