Cable Car Ride

For our last day in Hong Kong, we wanted to visit Ngong Ping project on Lantau Island. We took the Tung Chung line from Hong Kong to the Lantau coast. We could have taken a bus to Ngong Ping (40 min ride around the mountains), but opted instead for the cable car (24 min ride over the mountains). Beautiful views of the mountains, a bay, the airport, and Ngong Ping.

Looking back, the airport on the left and the take-off point on the right:

Looking towards the highest peak (and yes, that's a path you could use to walk this trip; yikes!):

Looking towards our destination; the Big Buddha on the left:
