Take a trip to the top of the mountain
May 2021
The Maokong Gondola will take you to the Taipei Zoo. It's quite exciting, especially if you haven't been on a cable car before. You will get a good view over the mountain.

Captivating Maokong / Gondola Ride
Aug 2019
Riding the cable ride uphill to Maokong is perfect for romantic dates as it offers a wonderful view of Taipei.

Maokong is a must visit village to those who want to unwind away from Taipei. There are tea and coffee shops around, restaurants and even ice cream parlours.

I've met a tea entrepreneur while I am walking around and it's one of the sweetest and memorable moments of my trip as she taught me how to brew tea properly as well as to try it.

Great experience on a sunny day
Feb 2020
Although I had explored Taipei Zoo at one time, I did not get to the gondola next door, because the zoo took me hours to get through, and besides, it was a cloudy, rainy day; not good for a gondola trip back then.

This time, I went up the gondola with two friends and we chose the crystal gondola, with the see through floor, which was fun.

It is part of the metro system so you can use your metro card to pay for the ride up and down. It is excellent value for the price because my friend told me she had been up another gondola elsewhere and it was a nothing 5 minute ride which cost about twenty times as much. This gondola is closed on days when weather is not good for tourists.

At the top are street food vendors for snacks, restaurants and tea shops. The view is gorgeous from up there. Down a level there is a most beautiful temple representing multi religions. There is a pond with a gold dragon in it that I loved. Next to it are all the stone animals of the Chinese zodiac.

I had a really nice day riding on the gondola with friends and walking around the different levels where the gondola stopped.

There is a zoo next to 貓空. You can stay there for all day. You can go to the zoo in the morning,and then go to the mountain.

Scenic Ride
Dec 2019
The Maokong Gondola has been in operation since July 2007 and has four stations (Taipei Zoo Station, Taipei Zoo South Station, Zhinan Temple Station, and Maokong Station) along its 4km line. We took a round trip on the gondola for NT$240 by using our EasyCard.

On our way back we waited in the crystal cabin line, as there were only 10 people in line. However after 5 minutes of waiting, the operator stated it will be a long wait for the crystal cabin (glass bottom floor), so we figured it wasn’t worth the wait as the crystal cabins are few and far between. My friend and I jumped over to the other line and immediately took a regular cabin car, which we got all to ourselves.

OK, but don't go on Monday
Feb 2020
When I reached the mrt station on a Monday there was a notice that the gondola was being serviced and would be closed. I had visited the website and had not seen anything to indicate a closure. I tried again later in the week and was able to go up. The ride was nice - great views. There were a few teahouses spread out at the top, but nothing was too appealing. It may be better with a group than solo.

A must-do when in Taipei
Mar 2020 • Couples
It’s a gondola so not very exciting. But what a gondola it is. 4 km from base to top! Somewhat pricy by local standards — NT$ 240 round trip. Be sure to have lunch at one of the several tea houses on the peak.

Nice Experience
Mar 2020 • Solo
Cool experience and beautiful views. This is a nice trip to take while I’m Taipei. The only issue I had was with an over zealous attendant at the very top of the gondola screaming no pictures, which I’m not sure why. That’s what tourist do and there’s no signs posted saying no photos.

It is a nice Gondola but if you are pressed for time, okay to skip
Feb 2020
It is a very long Gondola ride and you do get a nice view. However, when you are up top, there are a few tea houses but they are not "super special" - at least not to me. If the weather is nice and you enjoy a nice Gondola ride, this is for you, but if you don't have much time, I would skip it.

Fun ride to do with kids
Jan 2020
We took my toddler on the ride up and she was so excited. We did NOT wait for the glass floor (Crystal) gondola because the wait was ridiculous and the view was still lovely. It was a weekend day and busier so we had to share with another family and we rode all the way to the top and got some food before heading back. They take the IC card and costs NT120 each way. There was no wait for a crystal gondola going down. The temples were pretty but we didn't make other stops as the zoo was still a bit of a trek from each of the stations.
