This is a 4 kilometer gondola ride accross the virgin forest. Even it was wet and fogy, the view was still very beautiful. I think this is a must if you visit Taipei more than 2 days.

Excellent setup to go from Metro station to hill top and great view. Also there are temples enroute and you will also get a good view of Taipei zoo. Must try one during visit to Taipei an having good connectivity through Taipei metro.

After days of shopping and overeating this was a wonderful break from it all. The gondola ride which is really a capsule suspended on cables overlooking magnificent views of the region and the city was relaxing and serene. There are 2 types of gondolas you can choose - one has a solid floor and the other one has a glass... More

the gondola ride is lovely, worth waiting for the one with a transparent bottom. we went there on a rather wet day with some strong wind, so the gondola ride was stopped once we reached the top. the option was to either trek down or take bus back. we opted for the trek and it was worth the time and...

We had the luck of having great weather which made for good views and fun hiking on the trails at the top of the gondola. Although the wait is a bit longer I recommend the Crystalline cabins which include a glass bottom. It is conveniently located near the MRT and the Taipei Zoo. Cost is a very reasonable 100 NTD...

Always choose transparent floor gondola as there is virtually no one queuing for them. Lovely ride with breathtaking scenery.

This was a great cable car ride, barring the Hello Kitty heads covering up much of the window. The view was lovely but we had to stand to take pictures with Hello Kitty in the way. Good food at the top stop; tea rooms, green and black tea ice cream. Short walk from the Metro to the gondola station.

lots of tourists but a good activity to do and see the view from the top. Only thing is that with so many tourists you need to line up a while waiting for the gondola. We got the gondola with the glass floor so you could see the bottom

At the end of the MRT line at Taipei zoo, just down the road is the Gondola to Maokong mountain. It is a gorgeous 4-kilometer 10+ minute ride up to the top, with views of the city along the way. The Crystal cars with the clear glass floor are great for watching the ground below, but probably not great if... More

Gondola stop is just minutes walk away from Taipei Zoo MRT Station. For just 50NT, you get to board the Gondola for one 30mins ride up to the mountian top. For more added value, you can queue for a Glass -bottom cabin without any additional charges, you just need to get a Queue ticket and proceed to the Glass-bottom cabin... More
