貓空 (Mao Kong) at last

posted by Martin Rubli at 15:52

It took a while for me to take the incident-plagued Mao Kong gondola, but after a few years without major malfunctions I finally felt brave enough to try it. So brave, in fact, that we decided to take the "crystal cabin", where the floor is made of nothing but a thick pane of glass.

We hiked up from 政治大學 (Chengchi University) to 指南宮 (Zhi Nan temple) and then took the gondola from there instead of the final station since the second half of the hiking trail we had planned to take was nowhere to be found.

Here are some photos from this high-temperature, high-humidity day trip:
