    Maokung Gondola will take you for scenic trip from the Taipei Zoo MRT Station up into the mountains. It's a cable car, it can be a bit scary if the wind is blowing. The view is good, you can get off if you want, just make sure that you can get back on again.

    Chih Nan Temple is one of the oldest and most impressive Taoist temples on the island. It is colloquially known as "the Temple of a Thousand Steps" by foreign residents. Colourfully robed Taoist monks bless offerings brought to them by the faithful. The temple is one of the largest in Taiwan. Taoism is a unique Chinese belief system, where the faithful seek to live in harmony with nature.

    Taipei Zoo has a range of animals that interest the whole family, such as giant pandas, koalas, zebras and monkeys. There is something for everyone. The zoo is quite spacious, and you can buy things to eat. It's a good place to spend some time on the holidays. You can get there by public transport, which is convenient for families.

    We took the gondola up to the mountain and hiked back down to the Zoo MRT station. There are lovely plantations at the mountain and nice views. Food is available up on the mountain too (convencience store, teahouses, small restaurants and street vendors).

    Its fun but the view might not be the best Taipei has to offer.
    Due to Taiwan's weather I would recommend to check it before going. Heavy rain or a very hot day wouldn't be advice.

    We originally wanted to go on the short Healthy Trail to see the Pothole. According to the signs; it should have been a short 10 min walk from the Tea Center. Unfortunately, we thought we could loop back up to the Tea Center, but I think you are supposed to backtrack from where you came.

    As we got deeper onto the trail, the trail markers were all in Chinese and we could not decipher where we were nor which way to head back the Tea Promotion Center. We think we were on this Jhangshu Trail which took us about an hour to return to the Tea Center. It was a difficult loop trail w/ lots of stairs & quick elevation changes.

    Google map (GPS) doesn’t work well in the mountains. We asked for directions from locals who happened to be on the trail. But for the most part, the trail was quite empty. It will be most helpful to provide a trail map & trail markers in English as well. It's a really interesting trail, well maintained & mostly in the shade.

    I would advice to check the weather before.
    A very hot or rainy day would not be a good choice.
    Its a nice place to go to with friends or kids.
    Not my first choice if you only have a few days in Taipei but not bad for spending time.

    Must go there during the summer time, better at July to August because the lotus garden is really beautiful. Avoid to go there during Nov-Feb for the lotus are almost dead then.

    The last station of the Gondola ride from the Taipei Zoo station. Climate is cooler at the top of the mountain, despite the fog that time we enjoyed the scenic view from the station. We went out of the station to try the food stalls nearby. Since the weather was cold (13-degree celsius) we tried some soup with chicken balls, taiwanese sausages, braised pork and sweet corn before going back to the station for our return ride to Taipei Zoo station.

    The Maokong Station is the last stop on the four stop Gondola. There are a few vendors and restaurants outside the station. I really question why this is a TripAdvisor attraction though.

    Around 20 minutes walk from Maokong Station. You can eventually take a bus 🚌 to get closer. Hidden in the nature and peaceful environment with excellent views. Relax and taste local tea 🍵

    Its very well taken care of, clean and beautiful.
    Not my first choice if you only have a few days in Taipei but not a bad place to visit if you are nearby or have the time to spend.
