Nice scenic mountain. Easy access via mass transport. I enjoy strolls along the several family friendly walking trails available at the bus depot.
Unless you are gamed for hiking otherwise don't waste your energy and time. When you are there take a shuttle bus (not mentioned in Google) to go around the mountain. Every time you board the bus it's NT15. There are about 9 stops around the mountain.
If you are a climbing lover, I suggest you must be here at once in your lifetime. I planned to be here because I would like to see the national park which is different in my hometown. I want to see a beautiful scenery, the mountains and tress, it's worth to be here. I've called Switzerland in Taiwan. At here, there are many choices for walking in the jungle, from the starter to the expertise. If you don't know how to start walking, please asking or contact the staffs; otherwise, you may be lose along the way. Please pay attention for this. Food and beverage are very necessary to be well-prepare because there's rarely find the convenient store. Starbuck lover don't worry, there's a store there. Also, the price is quite expensive, but reasonable because of the transportation. In overall, I love to visit here again next time.
A quite convenient and relaxing place to enjoy away from the busy life of Taipei city. The place is approachable by bus from various MRT stations. A number of hiking trails are available. The person interested in riding around mountain can enjoy unlimited bus rides in very less price. A number of hot spots are also there.
The park is easily accessible from Taipei by public transport. Bus or train/bus. There is also a bus shuttle service around the park. The rangers at the Visitor Centre speak English and provide maps of the park. There are different attractions around the park like the sulphur springs, suspension bridge, hot springs where visitors can dip their feet in the hot springs or there are separate bathing houses for men and women. There are also many trails for hiking and a waterfall or two. The scenery is gorgeous but unfortunately we missed the floral displays in the park which happens in May.
