Once you exit the Gondola station, you'll see a bunch of tea houses. It's hard to choose which one to go to and there aren't many reviews up so we just walked through it to get to the Tea Promotion Center which is a fun place to learn about the different teas, grab a free mug of tea, enjoy the...

A friend and I wandered around the top of Maokong Mountain. We took the gondola up then had lunch and afternoon tea. Very scenic and pretty!

Last year, we went at sunset so missed out a lot cos we didn't know there were so many trails and places to walk. This year, we went much earlier in the day and were able to walk a little more, plus spend the afternoon at an eatery called 清泉山荘 (Qing1Quan2Shan1Zhuang1) where the people are warmhearted, the food is excellent...

Very nice and long trip with the gondola, also safe. You can stop in the middle to visit the Taipei zoo, lots of places to eat, at the top of the mountain. Also the possibility to turn back by bus or taxi instead of gondola. Highly recommended!

Took Maokong Gondola from the zoo straight up to Maokong (2 stops). Was a really nice ride. Bought tea leaves from the souvenir shop there and had dinner at Four Brothers, which was a really great choice! Their menu consists of tea-infused ingredients, which was something different from the usual Chinese restaurant. The only bummer was that it was raining... More

Feet of the Maokong mountain is Taipei Zoo. Before we went to the top of Maokong mountain, we went to Taipei Zoo first. Taipei is the most famous zoological garden in Taiwan and a leader in conservation, research and education, and recreation. It is also the largest zoo in Asia. It contained 377 species of animals. After toured around Taipei... More

Maokong mountain is a very relaxing place. First, take the subway to the zoo stop, and then you can take the Maokong cable car up the mountain.

Headed to the mountain for dinner, where I was greeted by the cold wind. I don't know how active it is in the day, but there's nothing much to do at night.

You can go easily to the Maokong using cable car. If you stay within Taipei, the route that i suggest will be to go to nearest MRT station >> Taipei Zoo MRT station (at Brown Line) >> walk from the MRT to the cable car station which i remember located very close to the MRT station. The ticket for cable... More

Very nice attraction ; you can enjoy the nice view and if you take a gondola with transparent floor it is even more interesting. it takes about 20 min to reach a top of the hill. You can buy a city card ( 1 day access) which covers metro and gondola - no limits for one day
