Lovely cable-car ride to a stunning location full of interest and spectacle. Enjoyed this more than the Crazy House.

“Beautiful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2012

The cable car ride to the pagoda is a beautiful trip, well worth the money, up and over a mountain. I don't think the trip would be the same on the road. The pagoda itself is beautiful and has lovely gardens. Views from the restaurant beside the cable car stop are beautiful. Nice place for lunch or a drink.

“A beautiful place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2012

We went here after riding the cable car and walked through the area with one of our easy riders who explained that it is a centre for meditation. It was the school holidays and full of Vietnamese families enjoying a big day out in a meaningful place. The gardens are very nice and beautifully kept and the temples are well used and much loved with a lovely view down to the lake below.

“Take the Cable car ride up!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2011

at the top of where the cable car drops you off (single 50,000 dong, return 70,000) The monastery (admission free, donations accepted) has a magnificent view over the dams below and its gardens are full of landscaped flowers, bonsai, topiary. Extremely peaceful - a great place to relax and soak in the tranquility. After walking the gardens, we headed down to the lake where we enjoyed coffee and beers. We decided not to complete the round trip and insdier - opted for a 5 mile walk back. Be sure to bring a map. Wonderful.
