Mao Kong used to be a site for tea plantation. Tourists come up to enjoy tea-culture, and hiking. For us, the cable car ride itself was already a treat ! (Genting is still better as you can see the drifting clouds, and the Sheer Descend !)
Cable car will ride us up the hills, we can see green plantations all around us.
If it is too windy, we suspect little kids might be shaken by the "rocking".
Along the way, colourful animal cabins passes by :)
Fresh air awaits us at the top
We quickly settle down for late lunch at 1500, all are starving and tired by now.
Tuck in, but someone decided sleep is more important.
There is a "crystal" 水晶 cabin, and the base is made of glass. Daddy is not sure whether
We took the normal cabin downhill, and Yi only woke up halfway (photo below is from MaoKong website)
Throughout our trip, we are very proud that Wei and Kang are able to keep pace with us, and even take care of younger siblings.
