Yangmingshan is a National Park in Taipei, Taiwan. Previously known as Grass Mountain, this is a wondrous natural spot with valleys, lakes, ridges, waterfalls and basins. It is home to the tallest inactive volcano, called the Seven Star Mountain. The beautiful cherry blossoms, hiking trails and hot springs will delight all visitors to this park. There are also numerous historical sites in this area, including the Chung-Shan Building. With so many beautiful natural attractions and wonderful things to do, Yangmingshan has become one of the most popular destinations in Taipei.
- Go hiking in Yangmingshan on one of the many trails; one of the most popular trails takes you to the top of Seven Star Mountain and then down to Lengshuikeng.
- Bathe at the Taipei hot springs; there are several hot springs here, some along the Seven Star Mountain trail, where you can relax with a foot dip or even bathe.
- Visit the Chung-Shan Building, an impressive historical monument of Taipei that features a Ming/Qing architectural style, and is decorated with hand crafted lanterns and Chinese mother of pearl furniture.
There is a network of roads crisscrossing the mountains, so visitors can reach the Yangmingshan National Park by using public buses and minibuses. Just outside of the main station of Taipei is the station for bus 260, which departs Civic Blvd for the national park every 10 minutes. Bus 230 runs from Beitou every half hour, and Bus Red 5 departs every 15 minutes from the Jiantan MRT Station. Bus 108 will take you around the park, and stops at various spots within it. Once in the park, there are many hiking trails available for travellers to enjoy.
