If you visit taipei zoo, don't forget to visit this place too. You can take a gondola trip with your friend, and choose the bottom gondola with clear glass or not. Choose the bottom with clear glass one if you are not afraid of height, because you can see the below view from here.

Beautiful view, worth going. But the ride in long and slow in a hot little box, going during the cooler seasons would be better. The crystal cabin, or the car with the glass bottom is about a 45 minutes wait all the time but it would be way better than the regular cars.

Nothing special with this attraction. Very hot inside. Only mountain scenery and tea house / cafe at the top of the mountain.

Very affordable, and just stones throw away from MRT. Loved the food stalls at the final station. Gondolas also have glass flooring.

Close to MRT station. Not much to do up in the mountain, but worth just to enjoy the gondola ride. About 4km one way. So it's quite long in a good way. Very fun ride with a great view including Taipei 101.

Awesome trip, really recommend the glass bottom carriages! Also, instead of traveling to the gondola just for the gondola trip, you can do the zoo as well, and there is a station inside the zoo, so you walk up through the zoo, see the animals and then go to the station and get to the top, have tea or lunch...

Easy to access with public transport from the city center. Excellent views, much longer gondola ride than I expected for the price. Seeing the jungle from high above, and near the end of the ride, seeing the temples perched on distant ridges were the high points. The hights are dizzying at times, and one passenger was so panic-stricken she hopped... More

The Makong Gondola is truly a delight! To see the twinkling lights of Taipei as the sun set was terrific! It gives you a wonderful view of this city scape. It gives one the sensation of an adventure! The lines were quite long, but nothing one couldn't handle! The whole family loved it!
