Sunday:open 24 hours




Nangang Mountain is located at the eastern border of Taipei Basin; it is a popular mountain hiking route due to its connection to Sishou Mountains. Entering from Xiangshan Trail near Lingyun Temple, the path is paved with stones, marked with indicators and surrounded by Taiwan acacia (Acacia confuse). Along the path are numerous shelters and seats donated by Zaojuehui (Morning Exercise Club) that provide resting locations for mountain hikers. The trial is connected to Xiangshan, Hushan and Lishanqiaokou.

Nangang Mountain
Daying Pavilion

Nangang Mountain is located at the intersecting ridge of Xinyi District and Nangang District, and is the highest peak among the Nangang Mountains. On its peak are a glistering lamp and an equilateral triangle No. 695. The 196 m tall Nangang Mountain spans from Changshou Park to Muzhi Mountain, and provides great paths and trails for those who like to hike. At the peak, you’ll see four smaller mountains shaped like an elephant, a lion, a leopard and a tiger to the northwest, thus the name Sishou (“Four Beasts”) Mountains. An endless stream of mountains rises and falls to the east and south. There is a television broadcast antenna at the highest point of Nangang Mountain, with nearby ridges having sharp differences in altitude. One of the peaks is known as the “95 Peak”, so named after General Yang Sen, who conquered this peak at the ripe age of 95.

A serene, peaceful trail
Xiangshan (Mt. Elephant) and Hushan (Mt. Tiger) belong to the same mountain series, but their sceneries are not as diverse as here. The later section of the trail is more tranquil with richer forest ecology than the Hushan Trail. Further down, the murmuring sound of creek and archaic bridge enhance the placid ambiance.

    四獸山攻略 虎山最好爬 象山風景好 豹山一小段 獅山沒甚麼 建議虎上山 (有體力從慈惠堂) (沒體力從復興園) 走虎山親山步道16拓印亭這條 中途往九五心律寺旁邊就是豹山頂(經鬆) 再走大馬路(車很多) 會接到獅山(不好走) 再往慈聖宮後面觀音陰涼亭可接象山 這時有兩條路 一條往拇指山 一條往象山 若還有力氣 建議走拇指山這條可接九五峰(風景最讚的兩座山~超讚) 回程下象山或永春岡公園 也就是虎->豹->獅->象->拇指山-九五峰->拇指山->象山 預估三-四小時 沒體力的話就直接下象山了! 虎->豹->獅->象 預估二-三小時左右 下去可經過象山公園到象山捷運站或坐公車回家! PS.若對獅山沒興趣可跳過 因為獅山真的很鳥 上去之後可能會想~我到底爬了甚麼山 祝各位山友平安攻頂!

    힘들지만 올라가서 보는 뷰는 최고


    올라가면서 진짜 내가 왜왔나 싶고 힘든데 조금만 고생하면 멋진 뷰를 볼수있다. 근데 모기기피제 꼭 챙겨야한다. 모기들이 너무 많고 물리면 완전 퉁퉁 부어오른다.
