Nice view up the mountain, unless u like to be in the nature, if not will not really enjoy hiking up to the viewing area.

“Maokong Gondola”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2013

This was very fantastic and I like to see greenery scene. Fresh air and nice sight seeing.
I went to Tea shop and restaurant is called " Yao Yu", Tea oil Fried-Chicken is highly reccomemnded and don't forget to learn traditional tea brewing which you can enjoy with your meals.

“Sky high”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2013

This is not your average gondola. Travelling over 4 kms and at some amazing heights, this ride is an experience. If you're ok with heights make sure you go for a crystal bottom gondola- you might have to wait a little longer, but it costs no more. When in Maokong, go for a walk along one of the trails and try out a teahouse- it's an unmissable Taipei experience.

“Fantastic ride at a very good price!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2013

Destination at the top of the hills was lovely. A very good half hour ride each way offering fabulous views of the city and surrounding hills dotted with cemeteries, farms, teahouses.

“Gorgeous views, temples and tea”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2013

Taking the gondola gives you a relaxing time. Just hop on and of and enjoy the scenery. From the stops you can walk to three different temples which are all interesting and pretty. At the end station we went for traditional tea and lunch in one of the numerous teahouses over there. We chose one with private rooms where you sit on cushions on the floor and your tea is prepared and poured for you at your table.
