Ngong Ping 360 Cable Car announced its next service and maintenance period for March 13 – 20, 2013. Usually, the maintenance period will last only about two days where the Ngong Ping 360 Cable Car will not be in operation. In order to maintain and ensure the overall safety of the popular cable car ride the company decided to replace the system’s haul ropes and shut down its operation for at least one week during the scheduled period in March. In addition, a three weeks maintenance period to complete the system’s overhaul is currently scheduled to take place later this year in September (make sure to check our website for the latest news).
Visitors who still would like to visit the themed Ngong Ping Village during the maintenance period of the Ngong Ping 360 Cable Car and are already in Tung Chung have basically two alternative transportation options:
- First option is to take one of the blue Lantau Taxis to the Ngong Ping Village (except to pay approx. HK$ 180).
- The second option is to simply take the New Lantau Bus No. 23. In case you opt to take the New Lantau Bus No. 23 be prepared for long queues. For more information about ticket fares as well as a time schedule please refer to the following link http://www.newlantaobus.com/road_23.htm
Last but not least, the attractions around and at the themed Ngong Ping Village including Wisdom Path, multimedia theaters (e.g. Monkey Tale) as well as the entrance to the Big Buddha and Po Lin Monastery remain unaffected and will be open for visitors during the scheduled maintenance period.
