Great views on well maintained trails. Easy to access via MTR system. Surprisingly close to the city, highlighting how the city of Taipei and its surrounding natural areas impressively converge and blend. A great, yet not so challenging walk. Must be done both in day and night time hours.

A good place to watch the sunset. Its very crowed on the weekends. You have an excellent view of the 101 and the cuty.

Exercise/Trekking/Scenery/Beers Mt. Elephant is located nearby 101 tower where most of the trekkers will climb up and go onto its six-giant rocks, in central of the path, for a great bird view on Taipei no matter it is at night time or day time (mostly at night time, less energy consumption and more romantic in the atmosphere). In sum, to... More

I have got many chances to visit this wonderful open place but always missed it and finally made it last week. It was awesome and Taipei 101 seems like a standing 'Pencil' in front of you. If you love workout, hiking and height.....this place is right for you!

To see this attraction, you do need to have a certain level of fitness. A lot of stairs and pathways to walk along. The best time to go is near sunset, the view at sunset is truly stunning. A great view out of the city, with the setting sun in the background. Plenty of lighting to walk back down the... More

It's been many years ago. I went hiking there with my pregnant friend. My energy level is always quite lower than my friend who likes to climb the mountains and likes to exercise, although it's not quite challenging mountain or hill compared to other mountains I climbed before. On the top, you can see the view of Taipei city. It's... More

We took a taxi to the bottom of Elephant Mountain and from there, it was very easy to locate the walking trail to the top of the mountain. We went there at sunset and the trails were lit up by street lights so it was quite easy to navigate the way up (however, I will say that the trail is... More

We hiked up to the top of Elephant Mountain just after Typhoon Soudelar. Lots of debris and downed trees, but all was passable. It was hot and sweaty,but worth it. Great views back toward Taipei. Bring plenty of water.
