Crazy fun

Hike was crazy if you're not prepared but do take your time to walk the trail as it might get slippery. Just soak in the atmosphere and scenery along with the locals hiking there!

Taiwanese are outdoor and fun people. I had the best day spent in Yangmingshan National Park. The views were really great as what other reviewers say.

As an Outdoor guy, I really love this place. It's the best of Taiwan my version. All trail are well preserved, they even have an English translation for path and information in every trail area. It has many mountain (or maybe hill), but I just pick one to climb. It's not really a climb, they have a really nice, well... More

Seen great photos, expected to see blooms but it's the wrong time of the year, so there were hardly any flowers to see. Hardly anything at all in fact. Disappointing. We then came across Chiang Kai Shek's private residence which has been preserved for public viewing after restoration works were completed following a huge fire. Watch out for huge mosquitoes...

Really beautiful to watch whole Taipei city from this mountain area. This national park is well preserved, it has one volcanic place too. You can see it and feel the heat coming from inside mountain. Some souvenir shop near by too. Do take taxi to visit this place as public transport are not that much better.

There are many buses from the Metro to Yangmingshan bus station. For me, I took bus number 230 from Xin Beitou to Yangmingshan bus station and changed to bus 108 up to Xiaoyoukeng. I was amazed by the volcanic smoke upon arrival at the car park. I wore only a pair of slipper and was not prepare for any trekking... More

Was very misty on the day we went up, so there was absolutely no view from the top. Nevertheless it was an enjoyable hike up from XiaoYouKeng 小油坑 to the peak of Mount Qixing 七星. The hike took about an hour and was 1.6km long. Certain parts were really steep so it is not suitable for unfit people. Tips: Alight... More

I remember going there as a child with my family and I always try to incorporate a visit every time I'm in Taipei. We did the loop trail on a foggy day which made the scenery even more spectacular. There are local restaurants that serve the wild vegetables they grow along with local dishes. Probably best to go with a... More

Judging by the maps, this is a great park with lots of hiking and views and easy access from Taipei. It sees mad amounts of traffic on weekends, so if you can swing a midweek visit you'll be thankful. It is often in the clouds, and on the day we were there, the higher trails were completely socked in and... More

Amazing view, fresh air, good place to go during weekend. Go by taxi would be the best. Also a lovely place to jogging, picnic, and cycling.
