  • There are many hiking trails with nice views in the park, can easily spend a whole day there doing plenty of hiking. But the drive up and down the mountain was rather torturous for people not used to....  more »
  • We spent three hours to get there which was originally 1 & a half hours, because of the visitors in CNY. but the views are good.  more »

  • Beautiful scenery and trails. The journey up the park is quite long but worth it. Just remember to check the website for toilet stops as there are not many toilets here. The park is less crowded in the morning and tends to be more crowded nearer to noon.
  • If you like some moderate hiking, this is the place you must visit in the northern Taiwan. There are many hiking trails in this park. The trails are in the forest. You can actually smell the wonderful scents in the forest and immediately feel relaxed and happy. It is also very good for the elders to walk on some easy trails. The forest has a abundant ecological system. You can hear the monkeys on the tree top or run into some beautiful long tail elegant bird in the bushes. The walk on the trails may be full of surprises. Get you camera ready because you will never know what you are gonna see in any turns. The food and beverage in the park is not a 3 star restaurant. But personally, I would rather visit a underdeveloped place than a overdeveloped point. This is a good getaway during a weekend.
