Cable Car Cabins & Services

Ngong Ping 360 Cable Car System is owned by Hong Kong MTR Corporation, the operator of Hong Kong's rail system.  The system has 112 cabins, each of which has a modern design with seating for ten and standing room for another seven.  It also incorporates features to meet the needs of disabled passengers, including the elderly and wheelchair users. The system can move 3,500 people per hour in each direction. Two levels of service are offered—standard cabins and crystal cabins. The crystal cabins are distinguished by their glass bottoms and tickets are charged at a premium rate. Both sets of cabins circulate on the same ropeway with passengers being segregated by queuing systems at both termini.

Cable Car Route & Scenery

Ngong Ping Cable Car is a spectacular 5.7km (3.5 miles) bi-cable ropeway linking Tung Chung (connected to the MTR Tung Chung station) and Ngong Ping, where the Po Lin Monastery and Tian Tan Buddha are located. As the first of its kind in Hong Kong, the cable car journey starts from Tung Chung Terminal, runs across Tung Chung Bay to a station of Airport Island where it turns about 60 degrees toward North Lantau. The total journey time is between 24 to 30 minutes depending on the weather. It saves up to forty minutes' time over the New Lantau Bus Line 23 that traversed a tortuous mountain road to get to Ngong Ping. Passengers enjoy some spectacular views during the fun-filled ride, viz., the vast South China Sea; the rolling grasslands of North Lantau County Park; the hustle and bustle of the city and Lantau's famous natural landscapes.  Eyes can also feast on panoramic views of the vibrant Hong Kong International Airport; the Tian Tan Buddha Statue and the Ngong Ping Plateau. The number "360" in "NP 360" means that passengers have a 360-degree view of Lantau Island.

Ngong Ping Village

This is a 1.5 hectares (3.7 acres) site adjacent to the NP Cable Car Terminal. As a culturally themed village, it boasts several attractions including Walking with Buddha; Monkey's Tale Theater and Ngong Ping Tea House. It also has a diverse array of retail, dining and entertainment establishments. Street performers entertain visitors with Kungfu demonstrations and acrobatic shows. Additionally, visitors can make wishes at the Bodhi Wishing Shrine. The Buddhist Po Lin Monastery and the world's largest Buddha statue, the bronze Tian Tan, are a leisurely five-minute stroll from the village.

Opening Hours:

Working Days 10:00 - 18:00
Weekends & Public Holidays 09:00 - 18:30

 Note: The cable car is closed sometimes for maintenance, but the Ngong Ping Village remains open.

According to HKIA website, those who need to store baggage temporarily can use the secure short-term baggage storage facility on Level 5 of Terminal 1 (non-restricted area). It operates from 05:30 until 01:30 the next day, every day.

You can take S56 (CTB) from Terminal 1 and Terminal 2, Cheong Tat Road to Tung Chung Station, and transfer to 23 (NLB) from Tung Chung Town Centre to Ngong Ping Village. It takes around 70 minutes with HK$20.7. I'm not sure about the traffic condition if you take taxi since it is a long distance and I think the cab fare will be high.

Well, you need to hurry up and make full use of the layover to tour around Big Buddha.
HKIA to Big Buddha: Take bus no.S56 to Tung Chung Station. Then transfer to bus no.23 to Ngong Ping Village. Then you can tour around Big Buddha. The whole way takes around 70 mins with the fare of 21 HKD per person.
The return way is the same. Don't worry.

Remember to go back to HKIA 2 hours in advance before the departure.
