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.

    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.

    Ngong Ping village is worth-visiting!
    Taking Ngong Ping 360 is the best way to visit Ngong Ping village, the Po Lin Monastery, and the majestic Tian Tan Buddha of Lantau Island. It's a 20-25min cable car ride either with the "standard" cable car or the more expensive "crystal" cable car. The ride offers you a spectacular view of the island and the sea, particularly of the HZMB that connects Hong Kong and Macau. We took the ride on a weekend, which also happened to be a holiday, and the queue was very long. The first area you'll see from the cable car station is the Ngong Ping village with its array of restaurants, souvenir shops, etc. Next comes the 1906 Po Lin Monastery, and finally the 268-step stairs that take you to the biggest sitting statue of Buddha in the world. The view from the top was amazing! There are other places to visit on Lantau Island, but the three sites I have mentioned are the most popular ones. Highly recommended! 👌

A lengthy cable car ride with sensational views. Unfortunately for us, we climbed into cloud halfway up, but we still had some fantastic views on the lower part of the run. It's a great way start your trip to see the Big Buddha

Was a busy Tom sweeping PH , I disnt realized it till that day. It was crowded up there. The queue for the cave car was only 15 minutes in the morning and if you come back earlier in afternoon it’s also ok. Only issue was sharing cabin with over chatty folks with shrill voices that gave me a headache.

We took a bus going up to Ngong Pin and ride the 360 Cable Car going down.
Price for one way ticket is very expensive, and the “Crystal Clear” cable car is more expensive 😎 like a golden ticket.

Very bad view and small mountain
And I think that the cable car's fee is too high
I prefer to take the cable car in mainland rather than in ngong ping 360

This was great booked on line for tickets but that only actually gives you a voucher to redeem at the ticket kiosk but you do have your own queue. Got there about 1015 in the morning. Already a big queue for the normal ticket. We had a crystal ticket. No queue straight on. Good ride up.

Went to the Buddha and climbed up inside a couple of floors. No charge for that but could not go higher. Good shopping plenty of cafes as well as street food merchants at the base of the steps to the Buddha, just through the village where you arrive.

Most other reviews include the cable car experience, but not this one, as we used the #23 bus from Tung Chung MTR station (a 45-minute ride) in both directions. The cable car is not for people who worry about heights.

Our last visit to Ngong Ping was about 20 years ago when the Buddha and monastery were there, along with one short street with almost no shops. The commercial area now is far larger, with shops mostly concentrated down the slope from Buddha's location. If you are into kitsch, you will be in souvenir heaven, and that part of Ngong Ping looks much like the shops at Victoria Peak.

Being at Ngong Ping means being immersed in Buddhism, obviously, with some (not all) restaurants and cafes being vegetarian and also alcohol-free. One thing has not changed in all these years -- Buddha's commanding presence on the hill, and barriers that *very much* make it look like you need to pay to walk the many steps up the hill. But you don't. You can buy a ticket to go inside the statue and have a veg meal at the monastery but if you just want to see around the outside, it's free.

As one of Hong Kong's iconic tourist attractions, it's fine. Unlike places like Disneyland and Ocean Park, it can be done quite cheaply. The bus ride is comfortable if you don't favour dangling cable cars. But for us it may need to be another 20 years before we go back.

The cable car was closed for maintenance during our visit. So do visit their website beforehand, to avoid an end moment surprise.
We had to take a bus to reach Ngong ping. By the time you reach Ngong Ping via the 1 hour long bus drive you are exhausted. The Buddha visit climbing stairs was exhausting. But it is serene and peaceful at the top. Read the Buddha stories scripted in the walls (English dialect available)

The view is quite lovely, but if you've done other cable cars this one isn't worth the hassle or price. Signs were confusing and people were having to get out of lines and get into other lines. Once you are dropped off it's into a tourist trap and the part you really came for is still a walk. Suggest the bus it drops you off right next the Buddha area and skip the 7-11 anchor mall and long lines.
