The Yangmingshan mountains to the north of Taipei are volcanic in nature, and though now dormant, clues to their violent creation can still be seen today. The Huangzui Mountain is one of several volcanic craters left behind and makes for an excellent day trip from Taipei. As the mountain is located in one of only two ecological protection areas in Yangmingshan, it feels wonderfully remote and free of people. Often water buffalo can be seen grazing by small ponds at the bottom of the cauldron. A permit must be applied for and so if you’re interested in this hike, be sure to contact us at least 2 weeks in advance, one month is better yet.

What to explore at Yangmingshan Hike Trip?

We have an early morning pick-up, and then we head up to Yangmingshan National Park. The hike begins near the plains of Qingtiangang and we walk an hour or so before entering the eco-protection area. From there the hike heads up and down before the last big ascent through hike arrow bamboo to the crater where we’ll stop for lunch. We finally return via the same route.

Additional activities such as hot springs (wild and not so wild) can be added.
