It was a spontaneous decision and we were glad we did it. There was a long wait at Taipei 101 and someone mentioned Elephant Mountain would be faster to view Taipei. It is about a 10 minute walk from Taipei 101 to the entrance and...More

The trail is easy to follow starting from the metro station. Some sweating was inevitable, but we were rewarded with great panorama of Taipei with Taipei 101 as the star. What's more - the Elephant mountain is green and full of birds, even on the...More

We went up one morning with our two young girls. There are a lot of steps, but the girls managed really well, especially as I had snacks in my bag :-) But once your up, the views and the rocks are really impressive.

I walked up this beautiful pretty easy walk. It's free which is awesome compared to Taipei 101 which stung me 600twd. But both are worth doing. I want to go back at sunset if I can make it. The view at the top was amazing...More

There are no opening times/entrance fees, you can go anytime, a headlight -as mentioned in earlier posts- is for sure a good idea for dark times.
