“Friendly hike”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 4, 2013

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.

“All about the monkeys”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 2, 2011

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 the footing is very good but it is a great workout and you are always covered in sweat.
at the top they have some terrific tea and the people are always very friendly.
it can be a difficult climb so be warned.
