The gondola ride had crystal gondolas with see-through floors and normal ones. Ticket prices for both are the same. Understandably the queue for the crystal gondolas was much longer. Out of the 3 stations, the first 2 didn't seem very interesting so I rode all the way to the top. There were many tea houses to sip tea and enjoy... More

It was really easy to get to the gondola using the MRT EasyCard. We were heading to the zoo and decided to tride up to Makong for lunch. From the top of the gondola, if you walk left on the road for ~5minutes, you'll find many great restaurants. When you first get off at the top station, you'll see something... More

We accidently found out about this and it was a highlight of our trip. The scenery is stunning, cafes and tea houses at the top very good. If you buy a 1 day Tourist pass for MRT the gondola is included. I'd recommend this if you only have one day in Taipei over other Tourist stops as it gies you... More

This is a must ride! Everyone needs to do this ride. We enjoyed it very much. Such a beautiful view. Also, you need to have coffee at Cat's.got nothing to do Café. We also had waffles. Great view from there.

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.
