Yangmingshan National Park, Taipei

(4.2/5 based on 950+ reviews on the web)
Centered around Qixing Mountain, Taiwan’s highest dormant volcano, Yangmingshan National Park, features 13 hot springs and several scenic trails easily accessible from central Taipei by frequent buses. Smoking fumaroles, Taiwan blue magpies, and rhododendrons growing from andesite rocks stand out as the national park's trademark sights. Enjoy a stroll around Dream Lake and visit Grass Mountain Chateau, Chan Kai-shek’s summer residence. You can see a staggering 1,360 species of plants as you wander around the park's rolling grass hills, which were created after the government burnt forests to prevent thieves from stealing rich sulfur deposits. Covering 114.5 sq km (44.2 sq mi), the area serves as a popular weekend and holiday outing spot. Make Yangmingshan National Park part of your personalized Taipei itinerary using our Taipei vacation generator.

  • 台北近郊地區的國家公園,車程約一小時即可近距離欣賞火山地形,以及擎天崗大草原、夢幻湖等美麗景致,建議搭乘巴士上山,雖然很容易遇到塞車,另外,國家公園管理單位每逢週一會休館 
  • 作為一個被開發,但又保有少許原生態的,近郊地區的森林公園。(意思就是很多小蜥蝪、蛤蟆、松鼠之類的小動物) 山上另外有一小茶舍。 坐公交而去,而園裡有導遊巴士帶領環繞整個園區。 整個山路都有方便登山客的路,也有泥土路。 而山上的湖在夏天更是舒適而漂亮。 未知冬天的環境會如何。 
  • 大年初二因交管無法自行開車,搭公車上山,再搭108遊園公車,因是小巴,每站都排很多人,等很久,我們在小油坑要搭車,因站牌又有其他公車停靠,發生大車上下車(我們不能搭),108小巴後面到站,許多排在後面的乘客就直接上小巴走掉,反而在前面等了4班上不了小巴的乘客無法搭,建議車牌要分開,避免發生不公平事情,擎天崗就有分開排

  • I really enjoyed a day walking the Wishing East West path. It was tough enough to bed a good workout but easy enough for a day. The views are stunning and it is easy to get there by bus. It was extremely busy - too much so for me- and the 108 bus was packed!
  • Great place to walk around and experience nature. You can also soak your feet in the hot springs. Note: avoid the indoor hot spring baths, it's mostly elderly folks....
  • Really super national park. Lots of walks. Plenty of minibus bringing you around.
  • Great place to go camping close to the city. Be sure to rent the fire pit if you have enough people. They have showers, but it was cold water only when I used them.
  • Good place for a good trekking away from the city jungle. For first timer, please be prepared to walk alot.
