Yangmingshan National Park, Taipei Reviews
Mountainous terrain. Great for trekking if you are into such activities. Many trails available. Otherwise, it's just a really nice break from the hustle and bustle of city life in Taipei. Google maps directions are quite reliable. The bus ride here was quite scenic and quick as well.
Took the gondola up to the top of the mountain, though I definitely want to go back and check out the temple somewhere in between. A great way to get out of the city and enjoy some nature, while still technically being in Taipei. The walks I went on where quite easy, and there are plenty of places to stop for coffee, snacks, or some stinky tofu 😛
A beautiful grassland mountain top with rich history. It also has volcanic tourist spots, seasonal seas of flowers, restaurants with great views, and many waterfalls. All of it are connected together by roads, bus, and hiking trails. Most people pay to come here, but you can also choose a healthier alternative by hiking up the mountain early in the morning to get in for free, exercise, and enjoy all the great view and Taiwan's vast biodiversity on the way!
This National Park is one of the reasons why I love Taipei so much. To have such a massive green space in the city is a blessing. I do hope most of the residents of Taipei make use of this National Park and visit it regularly. I would also suggest visitors in Taipei to take a day our to visit this marvellous place. There are numerous trails around the National Park with different landscapes and views to enjoy and appreciate. There are frequent bus services running from the main city to the beginning of each trail. This is one of my favourite places in Taiwan. Make sure to carry enough water when you go hiking and wear good shoes.
Great place to escape the city life of Taipei. A variety of different things to do for different ages and interests. Hard to find parking (especially during weekends) and the minibus is often crowded.
