This 25km route is the signature trail that goes from the West to the East (or vice versa) of the National Park, hitting 10 peaks in total. Since we only started at 11am and the last return bus would leave at 5:30pm, we decided to cut short but hitting the first 15km crossing 7 peaks including mt Xiangtian, Mt Miantian,... More

I went hiking with my husband at Yangmingshan during our stay in Taipei. And we enjoyed that very much. 1. The transportation is good. There're many ways to go there. We took bus from ShiLin subway station, just 25 mins, we arrived the Yangmingshan terminal. You can go from Taipei main station, Beitou station...etc. by bus. 2. The signage for... More

Lots people, and everyone are very happy enjoying the park and taking pictures. Good to walk around the park. A bit too many food vendors in the park. Guess people got to eat. Will return to visit again in the fall to see different flowers.

The winding roads into the mountains were so beautiful! The bus can stop at different points and you can see different sceneries of the mountain. Wear comfortable clothing and shoes. If you enjoy the outdoors and light hiking you should make this apart of your itinerary.

This place is good to visit in the month of January and March. In March, there is Cherry blossom. If you go now, all you see is just green fields. The flat plain where it use to be a dairy farm, now has a few cattles let loose in nature to graze the grass. There is also the volcano crater,... More

Went to climb the mountain and Qi Xing San, the scenery was awesome and breathtaking. Definitely worth the climb! The air is so fresh and less polluted, the clouds were low and near us.

Fairly easy to get to by metro/MRT to Beitou or 260 bus from main station then by shuttle bus into the park which altogether takes a fair while so morning is best to visit. There are about 8 shuttle bus stops in the park and not all are worth it so ask for advice from the shuttle bus office. This... More

I went there full of anticipation as there was a long queue for the bus that brings visitors to different attractions on the mountain. After a long walk at the first stop, we reached an open meadows which is a picnic ground for the locals. After walking for 1 km to the flower clock which appears on every photo gallery... More
