Nightscape-viewing from Yangmingshan 陽明山夜景

Sunday:open 24 hours




The nightscape viewed from Yangmingshan is a famous tourism attraction of Taipei City. In addition to Yangde Blvd., where uphill travelers will be mesmerized by the dark sky sprayed with blinking stars, merged with a shimmering sea of city lights, the locations in Yangmingshan popular with nightscape-viewers also include: the Baiyun Villa, Zhuzihu Scenic Lookout, Yonggong Rd., Lin Yutang House, and the road that bypasses Yangmingshan National Park and leads to Dinghu or Beitou. Likewise, the Erziping Recreational Area and Qingtiangang are both terrific stargazing spots known for a panoramic view. With a premium location close enough to the Taipei Basin and a slope steep enough, the iconic back-hills of Chinese Culture University offer a bird’s eye view of the city cloaked by night, and an illusion of being sucked into the nebulous, dreamily lit windows below.

    Getting back to nature


    Yangming Shan National Park is an area near Taipei, bordering on Beitou and New Taipei. While it could not be called a wilderness, it certainly has some wide open spaces. Among the attractions are Qixing Mountain, a dormant volcano which has a marvellous view of Taipei. It is the tallest dormant volcano in the Taipei area. The park also has evidence of volcanic activity, including hot springs.

    Great rainforest experience


    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.

    Walking on historic footprints


    We walked the Jinbaoli trail (aka- the historic fisherman's trail) in Yangmingshan Nat Park. From the car park beside the highway to the Jinbaoli Gate takes approx 2 hours. Mostly shaded area going up, you can enjoy the path where the fisherman used to transport fish from village - village. Some nice creeks and bridges along the way. The view from the top is nice and my suggestion would be leave some time cause the area on top is vast.

    Amazing national park nearby Taipei city with hot springs


    This is an amazing national park which is close to Taipei city. And very easy access by bus. There are many hot spring scenery to see inside the park. Make sure check the flower clock. There are also many restaurant inside which can enjoy nice night view of city. There are different things to see and do all around year. Also different flower to see at different month. Great place to enjoy the nature. Also, it’s cooler than the city. And great place to hiking, the tallest mountain of Taipei city is inside. It’s link little yellow stone park of Taiwan.

    Lovely place! If you don't drive, there's a little country bus which takes you on a ring road around the mountain. Take a long hike if you have several hours. Can get a bit misty and rainy (that's Taiwan for you), so go prepared!
