It's accessible by train and about 100m away from the train station. Visitors can choose between regular or crystal cabin. Go for crystal cabin (glass bottom). Glass cabin comes in after every 4 regular cabins. The fare is very cheap and you can use your Easy Card (must buy in Taipei). The gondola goes to 4 stops of a stretch of almost 4km. Spectacular viewdof the city, taipei 101 and nature. Get off at maokong statopn to visit the quaint tea houses. It's cold up on Maokong so be sure to carry a jacket. One of the most memorable trip in Taipei!

The Gondola is closed on Mondays for maintenance.Nevertheless, I took a cab for about 300 NT and made it to the top. The ride back by bus was only 30 NT. It's beautiful up there... there are plenty of cafes, restaurants and tea places. Also, it has a great view of Taipei, especially the 101 Tower.

Much longer than any other cable car I've been on including Cairns and Langkawi. Definitely take the glass-bottomed "crystal" car at least one way. Well maintained and great value.

Good way to get to the zoo! The whole cable car had hello kitty stickers! Lol, the view was gorgeous and it was pretty scary being so high up the mountains,
