Yangmingshan National Park Tours

259 Reviews

Yangmingshan National Park is busy Taipei’s safety valve. When stressed city dwellers feel like they’re going to erupt they come to this protected volcanic landscape for an instant fix of relaxation. It is particularly popular in spring when its gentle green hillsides are garlanded with azaleas, rhododendrons and (briefly) cherry blossoms.

All year round you can enjoy bird-watching or hiking numerous trails through the area’s famous grasslands. Like Wulai, this area is known for its hot springs, with the added twist of sulfur which turns the lake of Lengshuikeng an eerie milky pale blue.  

Practical Info

Yangmingshan National Park is in the far north of Taiwan within easy reach of Taipei. Take the bus from Taipei Main Railway Station or from Jiantan MRT Station. Accommodation options within the park are relatively limited, and camping is only allowed at the Jingshan camping area.
