Combined Ticket of Maokong Gondola X Taipei Zoo
With a total length of 4.03 kilometers made of automatic circulatory system of the French firm POMA, the Maokong Gondola is the first gondola in Taipei City. It takes about 30 minutes for a one-way ride. The gondola includes four stops, namely the Taipei Zoo Station, Taipei Zoo South Station, Zhinan Temple Station, and the Maokong Station.

As the gondola passes over the undulating terrain, you can glimpse moving MRT trains, the park along the Jingmei River, and the "giraffe" incinerator. When you reach the second stop, the gondola takes a big turn, and you will get a panoramic view of the landscape, including vehicles moving on the freeway below.
