Description

Located in between Taipei and New Taipei City, Yangmingshan National Park is known for its hot springs, cherry blossoms, and Taiwan's tallest dormant volcano, the Seven Star Mountain. Yangmingshan also features poisonous snakes, sulfur deposits, and miles of hiking trails with scenic views. Different from other national parks, Yangmingshan is actually of low elevation. Even so, this park's waterfalls, valleys, ridges, and lakes are quite abundant. Make sure to check out Seven Star Mountain and Xiaoyoukeng, located at the northwestern foot of Seven Star. Visitors can hike up to this point and check out fumaroles, sulfur crystals, and a landslide terrain of volcanic activity.
