Climb the mountain to see the sunset and night view of Taipei 101 and other landmarks as well. Many other enthusiasts waiting for the sunset with their cameras to capture the view of Taipei.

This is a nice place to go if you're bored with city life in Taipei. Reachable within only an hour of walking and hiking from the nearest MRT station.

Elephant Mountain is a great way to see a nice view of Taipei, (Without the 500NT fee for going up 101) You have an excellent view of 101 itself, also a beautiful way to end the day. If you arrive around 6 o'clock you can catch a nice sunset. Hike takes around 15-20 mins, but you can also continue on... More

You'll definitely work off that street food with this hike! It's a little hard to find the entrance to the trail but not impossible. It's a beautiful hike because you're surrounded by all the tropical trees, and at the top you get to see all of Taipei

The trek is very nice and views fantastic. Totally recommend it. Bring with you a poncho or sort if raining wear - I didn't and got completely soaked. Might be dry in the city but raining in the mountain

we were recommended to do this trail instead of waiting in endless queues to go up taipei 101 as the view of the city is far superior and then you actually get to see taipei 101 in the landscape. i definitely agree with this and would recommend it to anyone. it's a little bit hard to find the start of...

Follow the signs from Xiangshan Metro station, hike up the mountain and watch the sunset. Take an umbrella (just in case), water and mosquito repellant (for dusk) Worth the time and an amazing view!
