Yangmingshan National Park is located in the northern part of Taipei and easily accessible from downtown.
It boasts of volcanic sights, natural valleys, waterfalls, hot springs, wildlife and a multitude of flower and plant species. This National Park covers a huge area so there is something for everyone from easy walks to difficult hikes in many different types of environments.
You can also smell a bit of sulphur in the air since there are many hot springs in the area but not to worry, it's not too overwhelming. Yangmingshan is a total must for nature lovers!
