Ngong Ping Cable Car ride

The Ngong Ping Cable Car ride is a 5.7km journey between Tung Chung Town Centre and Ngong Ping on Lantau Island. It is the longest bi-cable ropeway in Asia. When you get off you can see a Chinese-style village that is located next to the world's tallest, seated, outdoor bronze Buddha, called the Tian Tan Buddha Statue.

The ride up took us about 25 minutes. You can see a trail below for those who desire a long hike up the mountain. We decided to just enjoy the ride.

You can see the Buddha Statue off in the distance.

These smaller statues are all around the large one.

Ready for the ride back down.
