Sun Moon Lake Ropeway

March 18, 2019

The relaxing cable car ride that offers immeasurable charm of the whole Sun Moon Lake and the surroundings of Buji mountain forest. This is the most delightful way to enjoy the scenery of the famous lake. Sun Moon Lake Ropeway is a gondola lift that connects between two stations, the slow journey stretches towards southern part of Sun Moon Lake and ascends from Formosa Aboriginal Culture Village and continues up high above to the highest peak of Buji mountain forest that connects to the Sun Moon Lake Ropeway station.

All you have to do is to sit, relax and shoot while viewing the surroundings. This is not my first time to ride a cable car but the multitude sights all in one is a fascinating experience to share back home. The only problem here is the winter season haziness, the fog and mist definitely, it will challenge my photography skills.

If the Sun Moon Lake scenery is beautiful down there, the aerial view is more spectacular that gives you a different perspective on how the world looks like from above.

We are five inside the Crystal Clear Cabin, the trill to see the view through the bottom. If you are scared of height, don’t get the Crystal clear, take the regular one. ( Check details below about ticketing)

The cable car ride is really a spectacular mountain climber.

The glass bottom gondola offers the bird’s eye views of the entire Sun Moon Lake surroundings.

Isn’t it relaxing? Graham enjoying incredible views down there… Sun Moon Lake visible in the distance.

That time, almost all passengers were  Chinese Hongkong and Singaporeans, we made our first landing stop at Wen Wu temple for an hour and back to the boat and we proceed to Formosa Aboriginal Culture Village.
