Amazing view

Beautiful ride to take day or night. Visitors can take MRT to arrive the station and take gondola up to the mountain. Some very nice reataurant up in the mountain.

This was such a wonderful experience. I was not expecting to see all the fields and workers as well as eat here.

This is best cable car compare with many others, less than US$1.5 each ride and takes 30 minutes, on the top of the mountain, you many either have tea/coffee or local dinner at local restuants to enjoy the quietness and city view. I'd love to introduce this to everyone no matter you are locals or visitors.

I love this gondola ride. The lowest station is the Zoo station, then it's the Internal Zoo Station, then the ZhiNan temple station, then Maokong (the highest). The fare is really inexpensive. 30, 40 or 50 NT depending on where you are going. Advice, if you plan on doing any stops in between and getting back on - do it... More

Photos do not do justice to the amazing experience you have going on the gondola and going up the mountain and seeing such amazing views! Once you get to the final gondola station, you can walk around to eat the sausages being cooked by street vendors that taste sweet rather than the sour ones you taste in Europe. My favorite... More

Leave the big city and the cars behind, enjoy the nature and clean mountain air. Gondola ride doesnt cost too much and it is easily accessible through metro and public transport. The ride is split between 4 stations and the distance is simply mind blowing. Oh and the gondolas have glass flooring and they dont stuff too many people in... More

Over 4km gondola is quite interesting. It seems that it never stops. I went up to the last station and then I used one of the beautiful hiking trails down to the 3rd station. The nature and the surrounding is very nice and on the way down you can have some coffee or tea. The 3rd station itself is also... More

Great, busy on weekends. Just walk a bit further away from all the food and tea stalls along the road and it will get nice, quiet and relaxed. As with all Taipei sightseeing spots, avoid weekends and be prepared for queues if you can't. It is well organised so it's just a matter of time until you are up in... More

I like the fact it doesn't cost you an arm and a leg. Maximum of 5 passengers per Gondola and they have glass bottoms. There's usually a long cue to what we did was take a bus to going to the Tea Plantation and took the Gondola back to the Taipei Zoo.

The Maokong Gondola offers a great view of Taipei's mountains. But it is a little bit long and really far away from the city.
