Must go place in Taipei for one of the best views of the capital! The location is a couple of minutes from Xiangshan MRT station. Bear in mind there's about 600 steps to the top, with some steep steps and uneven pavement. There are a couple of different benches when hiking but I will advise you to take a bottle of water and anti mosquitos balm.
Get ready to sweat. This place is higher than you think. With about 400 stairs I was dead once I arrived at the top but the view was worth it. With a half-way stop to let you catch your breath it is definitely doable but go early in the morning when it's not that humid yet.
Do not underestimate the amount of steps that are on this trail. Be prepared to climb the most amount of steps you have ever encountered in your life! Bring plenty of water especially during the day. There are restroom facilities about 2/3 up the mountain. Don't forget to bring the camera! The spectacular view of the city is absolutely worth the arduous effort in making the climb.
Saw the sunset. Easy hike since there are only steps, but take it slow since it's steep. Lovely view. Definitely worth it!!
Great short hiking trip in Taipei. Excellent city view. Must not miss. This is as good as hiking trail in CA, OR and WA
