Friday:open 24 hours




IllustrationLocated to the west of Jinlong Temple, in the middle of the Dalunwei Mountain range, this mountain, which has two names, has an elevation of 252 meters. At one end of the mountain are the clear waters of the Neihudapo Lake. A mountain path can be accessed from Lane 91, Neihu Rd, Sec. 1; Lane 136, Huanshan Rd. Sec. 1; or Lane 50, Huanshan Rd. Sec. 2, which is the shortest path of all three. Descending from the top, to a pass at 181m elevation, and then climbing again to another peak (with high voltage power tower) takes about 20 minutes. Here, a huge stone protrudes towards the north and, looking from Bishanyan, the mountain looks like a knife, which is the origin of the name Jiandaoshi Mountain. The whole of Taipei City can be seen from this peak.

Visitors can take the buses No. 267, 247, 256, blue 27 alighting at Takming College and walk to the entrance of Lane 91, Neihu Road Sec. 1; or take the buses No. 256, 267, blue 27 alighting at Lishan village stop and walk to the entrance of Lane 50, Huanshan Road Sec. 2; or take the buses No. 220, 240, 256, blue 20 alighting at Xihu garden stop and walk to the entrance of Lane 24, Huanshan Road Sec. 3.

    Great trail to have a little adventure


    I loved this trail for a few reasons. The terrain changes, it is easily accessible, the views from the summit, the smooth jazz and hula hoops. Yup- the last two you read correctly. I came across this trail because of the distance from where I was staying. I enjoyed the challenge of the changing terrain. I was pleasantly surprised to come across a man playing the saxophone and his friend singing. All encounters I did make on this trail was met with a hello and a smile. The trail was also very clean which was great to see. At the end of the route I noticed hula hoops in the trees, so of course I had to do a few minutes of hula hooping at the end. I definitely recommend this hike and will back.

    Nice hiking trail


    A rewarding ascent. Once again the top the views are refreshing. Not for people unsteady on there feet, this hike include me some scrambling up rocks and very steep stone steps.

    Close to Downtown


    The trail is close to the MRT station and it’s not hard to climb up to the top of Jiandaoshi mountain. Most of all, you can see the spectacle landscape of TPE city including Songshan airport, Taipei101 etc. Def worth hiking!

    Great hiking trails


    Worth exploring this trail which can be easily reached by taking the metro from downtown Taipei. The view at the summit is breathtaking. Expect to queue for photo taking at the top!
