The first cable car in the city of Taipei includes sitting in a carriage for about 17 minutes. There are two types of cable cars. The ordinary cable cars and the crystal cable cars. The bottoms of the crystal cable cars are fully transparent tempered glass, allowing you to see through it. You can have a cool view of the mountains. The crystal car can be reversed, but it still needs to wait for about 10 of the ordinary cable cars to come along.
When the sky is clear, you can see the Taipei 101 building in the city centre from the cable car. It is recommended to go during the day time, not only to enjoy the beautiful pastoral trails, but also to see the blue sky and white clouds! After the cable cars came up, the tea houses on Maokong Mountain became a favourite of the Taipei people. The smaller and larger sightseeing tea gardens around it became the most special leisure time on this hill.
