Project Description: Ngong Ping 360 is a new tourist experience in Hong Kong. It combines a stunning 5.7km cable car journey with an impressive culturally themed village, as well as an easy access to the Tian Tan Buddha Statue, the world's largest, seated, outdoor, bronze Buddha statue.

Travelling between Tung Chung Town Centre and Ngong Ping on Lantau Island, the 25-minute Ngong Ping Cable Car ride provides panoramic views of the flora and fauna of the beautiful North Lantau Country Park, Tung Chung Bay, South China Sea and the Hong Kong International Airport and the Tian Tan Buddha Statue.

The Ngong Ping Cable Car is the biggest cableway in Asia and is the first of its kind to be built in Hong Kong. The cableway system is a continuous circulating bi-cable aerial ropeway, selected for its superior ride quality and high standards of safety and reliability.

From the outset of the project, construction methods were developed to keep the possible environmental impacts to a minimum, protecting and preserving the North Lantau Country Park. The cable car alignment and type were selected to minimize the number of towers required and their associated impacts, whilst with the capacity to carry a large number of visitors.

Adjacent to the Ngong Ping Cable Car Terminal, Ngong Ping Village is an impressive culturally themed village, incorporating several major attractions, including Walking with Buddha, Monkey's Tale Theatre and the Ngong Ping Tea House, among other shopping, dinning and entertainment outlets.
