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.

  • Nice gentle hikes with good access via public transportation. Different hikes and park entrances give you exposure to Buffalo, birds, flower gardens, old and new temples, hot springs, monkeys, and more. Great for the novice hiker and family day hikes.
  • If you are in the area, it's worth the drive. Several overlooks give wonderful views. If you like twisty roads, the trip is awesome.
