Of all Taiwan’s national parks, Yangmingshan is the one located closest to a metropolitan center. Yangmingshan features a widely varying terrain, diverse ecology, and is home to numerous protected species. If you’re lucky, you might even catch a glimpse of one of Taiwan’s endemic bird species—the Formosan Blue Magpie.
The park is full of plum, cherry, peach and pear trees, rhododendrons, etc. In spring, the cherry blossoms never fail to draw crowds. After cherry blossom season, about mid-March, it’s time for the calla lilies at Bamboo Lake (Zhu-zi-hu) to take center stage. Visitors go into the fields and pick calla lillies to take home with them—it’s become a must-do event for this time of a year!
Perhaps one of the most distinctive features in the park is the “Flower Clock,” composed of a variety of colorful seasonal flowers. When visiting Yangmingshan, be sure to take a photo to prove you’ve seen this famous landmark! Also worth checking are popular sights like the Hsiao-you-keng (“Small Oil Pit”), Ching-tien-kang (Qing-tian Hill) Leng-shui-keng (“Cold Water Pit”), and Yangming Archive House. If you enjoy an invigorating hike, these will be right up your alley!
The Yangmingshan area also possesses a wealth of geothermal resources, with hot springs having differing compositions depending on their location in the park. Nearby Xing-yi Road in Beitou is lined with hot spring restaurants. If you’re passing along this way, don’t forget to take a relaxing dip in the sulfur springs!
Beautiful flowers in the spring, a cool getaway in the summer, silver grass and maple leaves in the fall, hot springs in the winter—Yangmingshan’s distinctive seasonal offerings await your discovery!

Walking on historic footprintsWe 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 springsThis 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.
YangmingshanLovely 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!

Caught the Sakura over at Yang Ming Shan!My friends and I made it here in time to catch the Sakura season over at the Yang Ming Shan Mountain areas! We hired a driver that drove us all the way from our hotel and brought us out for a full day tour over at the Yang Ming Shan National Park Area. There were a few checkpoints that the driver have introduced us which were really great spots to take an OOTD photo and see the Sakura flowers! We even managed to squeeze in some time to actually do a short trek around the area and I would highly recommend people to drop by. Feb will be a good and cooling season to come!
