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.

    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! 👌

This was an exciting ride for the family. We rode around 11am and the line was fast moving.

The winds were strong and visibility was poor which made it a lot more exciting. However, for those wanting to view Hong Kong from the top, I would recommend going in the afternoon as visibility is way better.

With minimal visibility due to fog and clouds, it makes for a more exciting ride as the visibility opens up as you land ngong ping.

Overall, a good experience!!

Although this is amazing and the best way to see the area it can be quite scary...... We came to a stop mid way down and just swung about for a while - I am not the best for cable cars and the only reason I didn't completely freak out was because we had a chinese family who understood the announcement without panicing - maybe would be an idea to use other languages aswell please...

The best way to do this attraction is book it yourself - do not do a tour - they are rip offs and you do not get to do what you want - plus the prices are ridiculous.
The cost of the Cable Car return is from HK$270 for a standard car up to HK$350 for a crystal car per person. A crystal car is basically a glass floored car that you can see everything underneath you. To be fair the exciting things to see are all above your feet - so I thought this option was a waste of money.

Get the train or metro to the Tung Chung station - it is around a 30 min trip from the main Hong Kong station. However, if you are staying somewhere else in HK it is easy to get a train to this station from where you are staying.

The trip to the top is great - you pass through many stations and many points where you can see so many things. The HK airport can be seen as you get higher in the cable car. Plus so many other sites.

It is a great trip and well worth doing.

This place is so close to airport, so we made it our first stop of our visit. The cable car has very good view along the way. definitely took at least the crystal cart, the all-glass floor at some flavor to the ride. After the ride we got to the Big Buddat, which is not much to explore. We took the cable car back, and it's less crowded when we come back and we are able to get a cart for ourselves, and took many more fun pictures.

I would give this 0 stars but the views saved it. Absolutely awful experience, lack of staff and ridiculous lines both there and back.
Thought we were saving time by ordering through Klook but watched multiple people purchase tickets and still get on the cable cars quicker. Over priced food and an overall disappointing experience.

I was both apprehensive and basically "scared shitless" about taking this cable car as "kinda have a fear of heights". But it's the quickest way down from your Big Buddha experience and offers the most amazing views.
At 70 years young, "Push your personal boundaries" is my motto and I was so glad I did, even with an increased wind pressure blowing and swaying our floating cabin.
I cannot comment on the cabins with the see-through glass bottoms as there was no way I was getting in them, but I heard they were also a great experience.
Definitely worth the time and money - go on, just do it !
