This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Yangmingshan National Park, Jhuzihhu Rd, Beitou District, Taipei 112 Taiwan

Yangmingshan park is famous for its unique volcanic geology and topographical sights, with signs of volcanic activity like fumaroles and hot springs everywhere. It's easy to reach from Taipei, just one hour by car. Due to its accessibility for the people of northern Taiwan, the park attracts hikers and other visitors who come to enjoy the scenery.

Duration: 3 hours

Stop At: Flower Clock, Yangmingshan, Taipei Taiwan

The centrepiece of Yangmingshan National Park close to the visitor centre and main bus station, Yangming Park is one of the first stops that visitors often make while exploring Yangmingshan.

Duration: 30 minutes

Stop At: Xiaoyoukeng Recreation Area, No.69, Zhuzihu Road, Beitou District, Taipei 112 Taiwan

Xiaoyoukeng is situated 800 meters above sea level. The feature sceneries include natural volcano air holes, hot springs, sulfur crystals, and landslide terrain. The unique natural scenery is the best place for natural science.

Duration: 30 minutes

Stop At: Menghuan Pond, Qixing Mountain, Beitou Dist., New Taipei 112 Taiwan

Part of a protected wetland area, this pond grows a rare aquatic fern & has an observation deck. (30 minutes hike for one way)

Duration: 30 minutes

Stop At: Qixing Mountain, Yangjin Highway, Beitou Dist., Taipei Taiwan

DescriptionQixing Mountain, also spelled Qixingshan or Chihsing Mountain, is a mountain in Beitou District, Taipei, Taiwan. It is located on the Datun Volcano Group and is the highest mountain in the city, at the rim of Taipei Basin. It is also the highest volcano in Taiwan. (40-minutes hike for one way, optional)

Duration: 1 hour

Stop At: Qingtiangang Circular Trail, Shilin District, Taipei City, Taiwan 111

A mountain-top flatland park, Qingtiangang provides amazing views of Yangmingshan National Park. By definition a lava terrace, the area was formed as a result of volcanic activity in the mountains nearby. After the eruption of Mt. Zhugao, the lava flowed north towards the area, creating this unique landscape. During the Japanese occupation, the area was established as a ranch for cattle to graze. The park is still home to cows and other wildlife. This area of Yangmingshan is very easily shrouded in clouds due to its elevation.

Duration: 30 minutes

Stop At: Yangmingshan Hot Spring Area, No.1-20, Zhuzihu Rd., Beitou Dist., Taipei 112 Taiwan

After the trekking, your guide will lead you to the largest open-air hot spring paradise in northern Taiwan.

As the region was not developed as a tourist destination until much later, the degree of damage to its natural resources is considerably lower, hence making the hot springs here one of the best-kept secrets of Taiwan.

The spring water is abundant, mildly acidic and free from impurities. Guests can expect to get a different hot spring experience with each changing season. Indulge in the pleasure of total relaxation for the body and mind here, hydrating yourself from top to bottom while taking in the beauty of the verdant mountains and the serenity of Yangmingshan.
