Even though there are free ways to arrive to the mountain, the gondola proves to be the most convenient one. It's not expensive and offers the people a really nice view of both the mountains and the surrounding places. The city view from there is amazing. The starting point is quite close to the Zoo and it leaves you right... More

We took the MRT here to the Maokong station during the morning rush hour. After you get off the station, just walk about several hundred feet to the gondola station. When we got there in the morning during the week day, hardly anyone was here. There was no queue to buy the tickets. Once we got on the gondola, we... More

The Maokong Gondola is a must do in Taipei. I only found out about the gondola once I had arrived in Taipei but glad I made the decision to go. It offers spectacular views and the stops along the way are well worth getting off and exploring. I would make sure that you have a full day set aside for... More

Maokong Gondola is a great attraction. There a lot more to see than just the views from the gondola. There is a mid-way that has a great park with short trails to a view of the city as well as lots of sculptures of the zodiac animals. At the top of the gondola is where all the action is. Fantastic... More

The gondola is operated by the metro company and offers inexpensive tickets for a gondola ride. The ride, approximately 10 to 15 mins, costed 100 NTD (return). You can pay just by tapping the EasyCard conveniently. It was smooth and presented a nice view of Taipei city. A good way to spend an afternoon at the teahouses at MaoKong.

Take a trip up around sundown and then enjoy a meal at the top as the sun goes down and the city lights up. It really is worth the trip and gets you out of the city and into some clean air. Access is fairly easy on the MRT, with just a short walk to the station. It is very... More

The gondola to Maokong is a worth the fare. We rode it to the end of the line where there are some quaint tea shops. I love the high mountain oolong tea! Drank it copiously the entire trip. There is a temple on the second to last stop. The walk is gentle and the temple worth a visit. The View... More

nothing much see, an experience to go on the crystal cable car, and the last stop is a place for relaxation and enjoy the nature while drinking tea.

This was the highlight of our trip! I loved the scenic views from the gondolas and the amazing experience. The whole Hello Kitty theme was cuteness overload and I loved every minute of it! We got into a crystal bottom gondola which was weird at first but you forget about it after a while. My husband and I really enjoyed... More

The gondola is good for the kids. Take the common one going up and the crystal one coming down as the crowd will be more less up there. Better to go on a colder weather as the gondola is not mechanical ventilated
