Yangmingshan National Park, Taipei Reviews - Write a Review

  • Absolutely fantastic park. Ask the rangers for a free map and tips on where to go, they speak English. The hike to the peak is strenuous but worth the effort, and the hot Springs and various points along the park are all accessible via bus once energy goes down!

  • Very nice hike outside of the bustle of Taipei. Fairly easy to get to by bus. Bring water because it gets hot walking up, but there is a gift shop with reasonably priced water. The lookouts were neat with the grassy hills blowing in the wind.

  • Great views. Close to the city. Has its downsides: rain, fog, too many tourists. Hiking paths well-maintained. Quiet a few shops for snacks, drinks and souvenirs around.

  • Nice scenery. Close to mother of natural. Fresh air. Good place to walk, hike and enjoy the nature. Definitely, will recommend as a tourist.

  • A great escape from the city. Come here for cooler air, beautiful / striking views, well marked out hikes and a strong smell of sulphur. This is a dormant volcano so you can see hot springs and sulphur escaping from the ground. One of the best ways to explore is to take a scooter or car. Pack warm / waterproof gear.
