The entire route extends 2.7 miles (4.3 kilometers) from the Taipei Zoo to Maokong with four total stations. Fares are paid based on the number of stations you plan to travel to. If you’d like to ride in a glass-bottom gondola, you’ll have to wait in a separate line.
The gondola ride is only part of the Maokong attraction. Once you get to the top, you can pick tea in the plantations, visit a tea museum or hike the trails of the surrounding hills.
