Take the shot cut
May 2021
It's 17 km (11 miles) from downtown Taipei to Yangming Mountain, but it will take around 2 1/2 hours to get there by public transport. Take the shortcut if you can. Best to use your own transport, or take an Uber or taxi. Yangming Mountain is north of Taipei. When Taipei is steamy, Yangming Mountain is temperate. Checkout where you want to go before you leave, there are lots of trails and attractions.

Scenic mountain is a good day out
Mar 2021
Yangming Shan, also known as Yangming Mountain, is in a hilly region to the north of Taipei. Many people had weekenders there when US forces were stationed in Taiwan, when it was known as Grass Mountain. The US forces left Taiwan in 1979, when the US recognized Beijing as the government of all China; it's still a popular day out.. Yangming Shan can get quite chilly in winter, when it is well-known for its plum blossoms. The plum tree blooms when the weather is coldest. During the martial law period the song "Mei Hua" (plum flower) was recognized by almost everyone in Taiwan. Getting to Yangming Shan is not difficult, it takes around an hour by public transport.

Refuge from the heat

Yangming Mountain, also called Yangmingshan, is a refuge from Taipei's heat. It is also famous for its plum trees, which bloom during winter. There are many hiking trails.

Relief from the heat
Aug 2020
Yangming Mountain, also known as Yangmingshan, is a refuge from Taipei's sweltering heat. In the days when the US soldiers and officals were posted here, it was known as Grass Mountain. Many people had week-enders here. It is still picturesque and a favourite summer day-trip from downtown Taipei.

The scenery at Yangming Mountain was almost unbelievable! Beautiful place to visit and worth your time to go there. Spending 1-2 hours there is enough.

one afternnon at YangMing Shan (mountain)
Dec 2019
Basically i like it as it is an mountain, quiet and we enjoy the trails, we took bus at a bus stop right outside the Taipei Terminal. There is a hot spring there but it seems seldom known by tourist, i was recommended by a local after knowing that i am fancy after hot spring. it is a real hot spring where male and female are separated and must be naked. Enjoy!

Flower clock good in photos, but quite a disappointment in person

Good for couple of photos but not much to do around the area. We clicked a couple of shots and quickly left. The other locations around the park are more scenic.

Best to Visit in Sakura Season
Jun 2018
This place is accessible via shuttle buses. We opted to ride the bus S8 from Shipai Mrt station. Though we went there in summer, we still appreciated the atmosphere because of the trees and flowers surrounding the park, how much more when the cherry blossoms bloom.

Cherry Blossoms
Mar 2018 • Friends
We went to Yangming Shan to catch the cherry blossoms. We were lucky to be able to catch some and took pictures with the blooms. It was drizzling but we continued to walk inside the garden and there were more breathtaking sceneries, wonders of nature and tourists. One reach the place via bus.

Some great hiking here if you look beyond the paved trails.
Jun 2017 • Solo
Some great hikes within this mountain range if you do a little research. I've done hikes within Yangmingshan that ranged from 2 hours to 8 hours.

Easy access, and heaps of amenities.
