  • 2019-06-07 to The Taiping Mountain, we went to Taiping Mountain, we went out at 05:40 early, because of the Lunch Break, snow tunnel congestion, we changed to the North Yi Highway. The scenery along the way is also very beautiful, at 11:30 to the Taiping Mountain National Forest Park, we eat bubbles in the guest center, with tea eggs, Taiping Mountain is like a wonderland, very cool, no mosquitoes! Taiping Mountain flowers are also very beautiful, don't go on vacation next time. We also have to go to the City Jingying Hotel near, the super bar CP value super high-value fast-fry shop to eat. Because the return journey back to Taipei, the snow tunnel journey is less than 2 hours

  • Taiping Mountain's elevation of 2000m. Peace has a temperature of 12degrees. The mountain is very comfortable. The end of April to May is a good place for the summer vacation. The beautiful three-hairwalk in November and February. The three-hair edgy trail sits in November and February. The only missing point is the mountain where the accommodation is too high.

  • 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.
