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.

  • Really lovely place to spend a few hours walking through the rainforest taking in the scenery and listening to the birds. Very easily accessible from Taipei.

  • Nice place for a day trip. Some places are exposed to very strong sulfuric fumes, take proper care of yourself if you visit. Otherwise, you will love the ambiance of the mountain. You can also go hiking.
  • It was raining and a freezing cold. It even snowed for a while. But the beauty of nature is amazing. We will return with better weather and keep exploring. You have many car parking areas (payed).
