About
*Temporarily closed Ngong Ping Cable Car - the gateway to start your Lantau adventure in Hong Kong! Ngong Ping Cable Car connects downtown Tung Chung and Ngong Ping on Lantau Island. Adopting a safe and reliable bi-cable ropeway, the cable car is first-of-its-kind in Hong Kong. The journey begins from Tung Chung, crossing Tung Chung Bay to reach the angle station on Airport Island and turning 60 degrees towards North Lantau. You will be greeted with the vistas of the distant and vast South China Sea and the rolling greens of North Lantau Country Park. At the comfort of the cabin, enjoy the breathtaking panorama of the Hong Kong International Airport, verdant, mountainous terrain of Lantau Island, the Big Buddha and the 360-degree view of Ngong Ping Plateau.

My wife and I and our daughter arrived in Hong Kong on a Cathay Pacific flight at 7am and as we were only departing at 9pm, we decided to spend the day doing the Ngong Ping 360 Lantau Cultural Exploration Tour.
We took the bus to the Tung Chung cable car station where we then took the Ngong Ping 360 cable car to Ngong Ping Village. We chose the glass bottom “Crystal cabin” which was a good choice as it accentuated the magnificent views.
After strolling around the fascinating village, we met our guide at the designated time and meeting point, whereby we attended an interesting artistic flower tea demonstration at Linong Tea House. We were also able to sample the tea which was very pleasant.
We then boarded a bus and were transported to the Tai O Fishing Village where we were shown around and visited traditional shacks on stilts. Thereafter, we boarded a boat and cruised through the waterways of Tai O. We were also extremely fortunate to experience a close encounter with playful white dolphins, who spent some time swimming around our boat.
Upon our return to the Tai O village, we were given some vouchers to spend at selected eateries and we sampled some local food, including fish balls and sugar doughnuts which were delicious.
After returning to Ngong Ping by bus, we said goodbye to our guide and continued to explore on our own. We visited the big Tian Tan Buddha statue by climbing the 268 steps and then visited the Po Lin Monastery, both of which were extremely fascinating. We also continued strolling around and exploring Ngong Ping Village, where-after we took the cable car back to Tung Chung and then the bus back to the airport.
Overall, it was a thoroughly enjoyable experience which we would definitely recommend.

We opted for the “crystal cabin” which enabled us to enjoy scenic views of HKIA and Lantau Island surroundings from several different angles. The floor of the gondola lift is made of clear glass which add to the exhilaration. Each cable car is quickly wiped clean and disinfected as soon as it reaches Ngong Ping station so the viewing windows are free of fingerprints and unsightly stains. There is also an option for “private cabin” for romantic lovers to savor.

Ngong Ping Village is a charming leisurely stroll. After sightseeing which must include the unmissable Big Buddha & Po Lin monastery you can top off your day trip here with a bit of shopping and a lot of eating. Come when it opens at 9:00 am to avoid the crowds that usually comprise of tour groups.

It's a wonderful experience. If you scar high, won't try. Because it's really a bid, but very very safe. Don't believe it will stop in the mid way. Such accident is really rear.
If you like take pic, you must try, you will never forgot. I recommend you go up at the evening with sunset and go down at night with the can't forgettable memory.

This iconic cable car ride will take you to the Big Buddha (Tian Tan) and Po Lin Monastery. It is a must do when visiting Hong Kong/Lantau Island. We had an 8-hr layover and we wanted to see HK. We booked our tickets online to save time and paid $37 per person for Crystal cabin one way and Standard Cabin back (promo). We took a 10 min taxi ride from the airport to Tung Chung Station (blue taxi $7), where the cable car terminal is located. We went around 9am, right when they just opened so there was no line. We also had the cable car for ourselves! The ride up to Ngong Ping Village was about 20mins. And the views of the buildings, water and mountains were so amazing. It was so serene and peaceful! I recommend taking a crystal cabin at least one way to get the full experience!

I loved it, great views across HK and a decent trip up the mountain range. ( you can also walk it if you prefer ) Go early to avoid the madness, a return ticket was around $ NZ 65 each return. Enjoy.....

Experience a slightly suburb lifestyle in Ngong Ping. However the hilltop is developed to be a tourist spot so food are pretty pricey and get ready to pay more. However there are some local running eatery from their house.

You reach this cable car by taking the metro out of Hong Kong to Lantau Island to go see the Big Buddha. The train will drop you at the entrance to a big mall with plenty of food. Walk past the mall following the signs and you will find the entrance to the cable cars. If you pay a little extra you can ride a car with a glass floor but it isn't necessary as the view is stunning from anywhere inside a car. It can take 20 minutes to reach the top of the mountain and you are treated to 360 degree views of mountains, seas and islands. You can even see the new Hong Kong airport that was once open sea but now a bustling airport. Have your camera ready for this one!

We had 2 days on Lantau island on our way to Paris. We spent the 1st day at Disneyland to keep the kids happy and then the 2nd day we did the Ngong Ping tour to Big Buddha and the Fishing village. Ken was our tour guide and split his commentary between Chinese and English, he was excellent! Really informative and great sense of humour.

The cable car trip to Ngong Ping was great and we opted for the standard car (shared with 3 others). Spectacular scenery and really enjoyable trip up and back.

Ken met us at the top and guided us to the tea house for the first part of the tour and then onto the bus for the trip to the fishing village (very interesting) and finally a walk to the Big Buddha and the temple.

All in all well worth it and great way to spend a day!

5.7 Km Cable Car ride over land sea and hills. Cars are basic but comfortable. Only had to wait 15 to 20 minutes in line for a car, but in height of summer warned that might extend to a couple of hours. Trip over the hills excellent with great views over the airport. Access from MTR station good - only 5 minute walk. But beware, the destination is the Bronze Budda and Theme village. Budda up 260 steps and ok with numbers there when we visited, but guess at height of season it could be oppressive. Views from Budda though are excellent.

When you get out of the bus or the cable car, it seems first very touristy and commercial, but walk a bit and the village looks like a traditional and old village from the past. Even cows and dogs walk around. A few places to sit down and have a smoke perhaps, and also lots of fast food restaurants and a cafe. Lots of shops for souvenirs and tourists, perhaps a bit pricey and I wouldn't shop here as I live in HK. If you don't have a lot of time in HK, this might be a good place to shop a few fancier souvenirs. It's a nice place to visit every not and then, but I wouldn't necessarily come here a lot.
