Taipei Sunrise Excursion: Yangmingshan National Park

1. Taipei Sunrise Excursion: Yangmingshan National Park

Your tour guide will meet you at your accommodation in Taipei City and take you to Yangmingshan National Park. It will take 40 minutes transfer from Taipei City to the sunrise point of Yangmingshan National Park - Datun Air Navigation Station, which is the highest accessible point of the city. Spend 15 minutes here and enjoy the sunrise from the ocean of the north-east coast of Taiwan. Afterwards, visit Siaoyoukeng Recreation Area, which is about 20 minutes from Datun Ait Navigation Station. Watch the natural sulfur for 20 minutes. It is approximately 805 meters above sea level and is known for the fumaroles, sulfur crystals and spectacular 'landslide terrain' formed by post-volcanic activity. The last stop of the Yangmingshan National Park is Qingtiangang, about 15 minutes from Siaoyoukeng, a lava terrace formed when the lava from Mt. Zhugao overflowed after its eruption. Because of its flat terrain, a ranch was established and the area was used as a pasture for grazing cattle during the Japanese occupation. At the end of your dawn excursions, your tour guide will drop you off at your accommodation or any other place in Taipei city.

Unfortunately there was no breakfast, as advertised, and the stays at the individual stations were quite short. The places visited were very beautiful, especially the viewpoint for the sunrise. Our guide actually made the whole tour an experience! He was just great, talked about everything, was always polite and funny, and would probably have fulfilled our every wish.

Amazing sunrise experience in Taipei!

A excellent spot to watch the sunrise and Taipei basin. With the fresh air and the cattle wandering around over the beautiful green carpet, what a harmony and unforgettable experience in Taiwan.
