Caishan Natural Park, Kaohsiung

4.8
#4 of 9 in Nature in Kaohsiung
Go jogging or hiking among families of cheeky monkeys at Caishan Natural Park. Some call this spot the "monkey mountain" because of the big population of monkeys that roam the forest. As you explore the park, you'll almost certainly come across some of the playful primates, but approach them carefully, as they tend to snatch valuable objects from careless hikers. Other than looking out for animals, you can admire the luscious plants and trees found in this park, refreshing yourself with a drink from the many stalls along the path. After successfully climbing, enjoy the view of the city from the top of the mountain.

  • Climbing the Chaishan seems to be one of the daily activities of the people around, and even when I come to Kaohsiung, I want to find an early morning. Notorious monkeys in the old, forming a nearby store to cage son protection trafficking sale of goods, the special scene, the trail on the tree into a shade, very comfortable hiking environment, suitable for a size before.
