This plateau is topped by the Tian Tan “Giant” Buddha and the Ngong Ping Village which has been designed to blend in with the cultural feel of the rest of the mountain top. You have the authentic side with the Buddha and the monastery that looks after him, then the more touristy side with the ‘Walking with Buddha’ attraction, the ‘Monkey’s Tale Theatre’, Ngong Ping Tea House and shops and restaurants. Visitors also get a panoramic view of Tung Chung Bay and Valley and the Lantau North Country Park.

You can reach the plateau by cable car.

Ngong Ping Cable Car

This is quite a big cable car run as these things go. 5.7 kilometres of gondola riding between eight ‘stations’ and taking 25 minutes to ‘hover’ over the land, and for a brief time the South China Sea, between Tung Chung Island and Ngong Ping, which is where the Tian Tan “Giant” Buddha sits. For once the scenic route is also one of the quickest – it takes an hour to drive the same distance. And it’s pretty scenic, riders get panoramic views of the Giant Buddha, Tung Chung Bay and Valley and the Lantau North Country Park.
