Ngong Ping 360 Cable Car

Ngong Ping Cable Car

Ngong Ping Cable Car on Lantau Island, along with The Big Buddha (Tian Tan Buddha) and Po Lin Monastery, are among the top Hong Kong attractions with different flair. Being one of the best 10 cable cars in world, Ngong Ping Cable Car connects Tung Chung to Ngong Ping through the 5.7km ropeway, taking you away from skyscrapers and the hustle and bustle of the downtown area. Here you will experience Hong Kong from another angle with more quietness and nature.

Ngong Ping Cable Car is not only the fastest way getting to the impressive Big Buddha, but also the longest bi-cable cable car in Asia with spectacular panoramic views of the mountain and ocean.

As one of the most visited attractions, the Ngong Ping Cable Car can end up with very long waiting lines. Try to avoid weekends and holidays if possible. Otherwise, it’s better to get there earlier in the morning or get a fast-lane pass/ticket to save time.

Ngong Ping Cable Car was opened on September 18th 2006 along with Ngong Ping 360. The number “360” in the name of Ngong Ping 360 is actually standing for the 360 degree view you are able to enjoy from inside the cable car.

Before that visitors could only use buses or cars to get to the highland of Ngong Ping. Ngong Ping Cable Car gives a new option for visitors to Big Buddha and Po Ling Monastery, and also brings a different angle of the incredible views.

      (not recommended for people with bus sickness);
    • By blue Lantau taxis (around 30-35min, about HK$ 200)

    There are usually 1-2 days of some months where the cable car does not operate due to maintenance (sometimes unexpected malfunction). The next maintenance will be from 6th to 26th of March 2019.

    Normally Big Buddha, Ngong Ping Village, Po Lin Monastery and the other nearby attractions will be still open. At this point, the bus ride and taxi may be your best option to Big Buddha.

    Bus No.23 is cheaper but takes longer time. Taxi is faster but will be more expensive and waiting longer. For those who has bus/car sickness, be aware that the mountain roads are very winding.
