I was on a solo trip in Taiwan, and this was my first stop in Taipei. I left the hotel for Elephant Mountain around 10 a.m. It was drizzling and cloudy, and my arms and legs were covered with mosquito bites I got while on...More
My title says it all. This is my second hike. First time was two years ago, i came in the morning, not aware the sunset view is much better. Be there before 5pm and wait for the night falls by 5.30pm in the winter. Not...More
It was quite a challenge hiking up the trail but totally worth it! Son wanted to be there for the sunset and it turned out to be some great 'Kodak Moments' for photographers. The climb on steep steps for this old lady had me stopped...More
This was our first stop when we arrived in Taipei, we had planned to stay for the sunset but it was a little to crowded for my liking so we took our photos of the view and left. Be prepared for the stairs, it was...More
Straight out of the Xiangshan MRT stop, across the park, up a residential street and the path begins (it’s all well signposted.)
Climb a very steep lot of steps for about 20-30 mins and you reach the boulders and subsequent viewing platform for the city...More
This is where professional photographers go to get the best view of Taipei 101 especially on New Year's Eve. It is an easy 30-min hike from the park below, which is a stop from Taipei 101. You can catch a picturesome sunrise or sunset depending...More
The most instagrammable focal point for Taipei 101; XiangShan is more than just a steep set of stairs to a viewpoint (although it is also that!). Easy access from the XiangShan station, walk along Lane 150, left turn before Sanli park, and follow the crowd....More

Yes true, that there are lots of mosquitoes and that ca be circumvented by liberally using mosquito repellent. Please also note that there are no lights can if you have good bright torches then it can give an excellent view... More
Yes true, that there are lots of mosquitoes and that ca be circumvented by liberally using mosquito repellent. Please also note that there are no lights can if you have good bright torches then it can give an excellent view of Taipei. However, if you want to enjoy the various trails (please note that it is not just one way route up and down and there are few other trails that you can explore once you are up there. But at night it may be not advisable to explore the other trails. But if you are keen to just climb up and see Taipei at night it is fine.
Also, please note if you are keen to see Taipei at night the other two view points are:
1. Off course 101 observatory
2. Get down via the Maokong Gondola (as it closes only at 9 pm and 10 pm on Fridays, the day before a national holiday and on Saturday and national holidays). It is lovely to see Taipei from that height and the travel time is pretty long at 20-25 minutes so you can really enjoy that ride
Have a great climb

It depends on your fitness level. My friends and I did it within 2.5-3 hours at a good pace with breaks in the heat, but we could have gone faster or slower. I think we were faster than the average speed though as we passed... More
