You can park for a low price at the nearby school lot like we did. Didn't get to see many monkeys this time, but the hike itself made it all worth it. It was very hot and humid the day we went; I don't remember ever sweating so much. Bring lots of water. The entire mountain is like a giant... More

This is an awesome place to see, learn, watch, climb and excerise. Bring water so that you can stop take a break and enjoy the monkeys that are walking around. Monkeys are really neat so bring a camera! Do not feed them it's against the law. My husband and I hiked all 4 trails or so that they had monkey... More

There are in fact many entrances to Caishan, or more commonly known as Shoushan. When I was a teenager, I usually began my hike from the Longquan Temple. The last time I visited Shoushan years later, I took the trail behind the Yuanheng Temple. Different entrances make different scenery on the way. The most popular Longquan Temple trail is recommended... More

Beautiful hike. If you are into hiking, you can get some amazing views as you go higher up. But even if you don't hike, you can go here for even an hour or so just to check out the monkeys! They are small and friendly (at least in my experience). It was a much better experience than seeing monkeys in... More

Friendly hike accompanied by lots of monkeys and floras. Free Chinese Tea offered by the hiking community on the top of the mountain. Had an amazing winter climb here. At some spot you get to see a view of Kaohsiung port too! This is a spot loved by the foreigners

Monkeys be errwhere. These are taiwan natives, Formosan Macques - beware what you bring, these monkeys are used to humans and are not afraid. It's a great place to hike more than anything, there's not much else to say. Be ready to be tired, but there are some nice spots to look out over Gaoxiong and over the ocean.

monkey mt is a great spot to visit in Kaohsuing. we always park at the entrance next to the temple and smell all the great smells as you start climbing. there are lots of monkeys so be careful what you bring, they will snatch the food right out of your hand. the trail has been mostly covered by wood so...
