About
Ngong Ping Cable Car - the gateway to start your Lantau adventure in Hong Kong! Ngong Ping Cable Car connects downtown Tung Chung and Ngong Ping on Lantau Island. Adopting a safe and reliable bi-cable ropeway, the cable car is first-of-its-kind in Hong Kong. The journey begins from Tung Chung, crossing Tung Chung Bay to reach the angle station on Airport Island and turning 60 degrees towards North Lantau. You will be greeted with the vistas of the distant and vast South China Sea and the rolling greens of North Lantau Country Park. At the comfort of the cabin, enjoy the breathtaking panorama of the Hong Kong International Airport, verdant, mountainous terrain of Lantau Island, the Big Buddha and the 360-degree view of Ngong Ping Plateau. Alight from the cable car cabin and you will arrive at Ngong Ping Village – the best starting point for your Hong Kong visit to “must-see” attractions such as the Big Buddha, Po Lin Monastery, Tai O fishing village, etc.

    Ngong Ping 360
    Ngong Ping 360 was the highlight of our Hong Kong trip. The cable car ride was an adventure, and the view of the Buddha statues was simply stunning. Ngong Ping Village was also a great place to explore and learn about the local culture. Highly recommended for families!*

    Cable car ride worth experiencing
    Worth visiting once, we took the crystal cable car ride down from Ngong Ping village, which has a monastery atop and the giant Buddha. The cable car ride was nice and peaceful, with a beautiful view of the harbor, airport, and the town of Tung Chun. The crystal car has a glass bottom which adds a certain thrill to the ride.

    High liner
    Booking queues were actually longer than buying it off the counter. When boarding from Lantau they usually put individual/ groups in separate carts, so if you're in a very big group separate yourselves otherwise they'll stuff you all in one. They do this for tourist photo sales purposes which you will get at the top. Coming back down from Ngong Ping they put everyone together in the same Cart, so I recommend taking all your cable cart photos while going up. Must recommend activity in HK

    Great little village
    The entrance to the Ngong Ping is near a huge outlet mall invase you wanted ti shop. The little village at the end of the line is sufficient for buying things and some photo ops. The Buddha, the monastery and the village are all near to each other

    Fabulous day out by Ngong Ping 360
    It’s the best day we chose to go to Lautau Island by the 360 crystal+ cabin. Light breezes, clear sky with stunning views. It’s amazing to see through up, below n 360 degrees surroundings! Steady cable car rides together with very friendly staff of 360, they all made our day!

    Ngong Ping 360 on Lantau Island, Hong Kong, is an absolute treasure blending natural beauty with cultural richness
    The cable car ride is the star attraction, offering breathtaking views of lush mountains and the serene South China Sea, providing a serene escape from the city below. Upon arriving at Ngong Ping Village, a culturally immersive experience unfolds. The majestic Tian Tan Buddha and Po Lin Monastery offer tranquility and spirituality, while the Wisdom Path invites serene walks amidst nature. Visitors can engage in tea appreciation sessions, sample local vegetarian cuisine, and explore traditional architecture and artifacts. Despite queues, the experience is worth it. The difference between Standard and Crystal cable cars lies in the transparent floor, with Crystal+ offering floor-to-ceiling views. Despite queues, the journey and cultural richness make Ngong Ping 360 an unforgettable adventure, perfect for spiritual retreats, cultural explorations, or scenic escapes.

We were expecting long waits as arrived on last day of Spring Festival, but we’re pleasantly surprised, it was easy to buy the tickets, we didn’t opt for the Crystal cabins, $80 more , and felt we didn’t need to watch the trees beneath our feet, also there is only 1 in 10 are Crystal cabins so we guess you could end up waiting longer. The 25 minute journey up provided great views, the weather had closed in a little on the way down but still a great experience. The 10 minute walk through the shopping area at the top can be done quickly! Walk up the steps to the Buddha, and don’t miss the temple the other side of the plaza. If you want to eat ,try the vegetarian restaurant attached to the temple, friends recommend it, but we missed this as not hungry!

We did the Crystal cable car trip and it was amazing! The problem was the huge line to get it. When you buy by the TripAdvisor you need to change to a paper ticket! Unbelievable!

Disgusting money grabbing service, told us the temple was shut but failed to mention the 3 hour long ques that was already in place the other end to get back down.

Traveled all of this east to HK from UK to see a parade that we missed trying to get down …

Would not recommend as even the pods were dirty so all the pictures were ruined

This attraction was closed for maintenance on the day we went (I did not see any information that this was the case) so perhaps an enquiry might be good as it is quite a long way on the MTR). We returned the following day – it was not that busy so the wait was short – the views are stunning passing over forested hills and you will easily see the activity at the Airport with planes arriving and departing – the ride is quite long with an option of a standard cabin and at a higher fare Crystal Cabins which just have a glass floor so you can look down but there are only trees and this is not worth the extra charge confirmed by the number of empty cabins leaving and arriving – a must do if this is your first visit to Hong Kong – an added bonus if you want a full day you can visit Disneyland as the MTR station is very close.

The ride was cool, we didn’t expect it to be as long as it was. The views were great. The line to get on took a long time, over an hour. The monastery and giant Buddha were great as well.

If you like standing in queues for 2.5 hours this is for you. The Big Budda was impressive. The food and beverage offering at the top was totally pathetic. We don't want kiosks or cafes with 6 chairs - full on chain restaurants please, where you can sit down, have a meal and a few beers.

PLANNING:
Before we arrived, already read about the long queues just for the tickets.
Did what all prepared people would do - purchase the tickets in advance via Klook.
Sky-Land-Sea Lantau Adventure package meant - we were given all tickets here:
- Cable car tickets (DEFINITELY get the Crystal Cabin for the shorter queue!)
- Tai O boat excursion + Tai O cash vouchers
- Unlimited bus rides (to and fro Tai O)
- Polaroid Christmas games coupons
- Maps of both Ngong Ping and Tai O

QUEUE:
Visited on a Sunday, arrived at 10.30am at the Ngong Ping Cable Car station.
Witnessed the long queue for tickets, but there was zero people in the Klook line.
Perhaps we were lucky.

CABLE CAR:
After a short few minutes of queue, we entered our Crystal Cabin. True that it was rather cold in December, AND we realized that back-facing row of seats was the one with the air vents (slits where the cold wind can enter). Our fellow passengers sitting on the other row of seats didn't feel the cold wind streaming in. Thank goodness we had some extra bags and jackets to block the vents. View over the various mountain tops, under-sea highway to Zhuhai and looking down at the hikers were awesome.

NGONG PING VILLAGE:
Also true what some others said - nothing much in the village except the nice cool weather and many cafes... And some very commercial Buddhist shops, if that's your thing. But we didn't mind, we enjoyed our warm Starbucks chocolate in the chilly weather. We also liked visiting the 7-Eleven at the end of the village. Kids played the free Christmas games sponsored by Polaroid, and we won the largest prize of a free duffle bag and other souvenirs! We were the only ones who were in the "Motion 360" theatre, which was a 4D short film and bird's eye view of Ngong Ping + Tai O. It was fun for our kids! The theatre is inside the Motion 360 souvenir shop.
We skipped Big Buddha, Po Lin Monastery and Wisdom Path and went straight to...

BUS TO TAI O:
Gotta look out for the bus stop - it's right outside one of the "gates" of the Ngong Ping Village, somewhere around the middle of the village. Bus driver of the fully packed 12:00 noon bus told us that the bus comes every hour, and we were disappointed because that meant we needed to wait another hour! Thank God I didn't believe him and stayed in the queue. The next bus came in only about 20 minutes. The ride was bumpy because the driver was speeding down the mountain but... my kids loved it like they were on a roller coaster.
Totally LOVED Tai O and will cover that in the Tai O review.

NEAR NGONG PING CABLE CAR STATION:
After a whole afternoon out at Tai O, we took the bus then cable car back to where it all started. And headed off right next door to Citygate Mall - for shopping and dinner!

Amazing scenery and an enjoyable experience. The Big Buddha and the village is a must see in Hong Kong whilst you are here.
