Elephant Mountain Adventure
Time & Location
About the Event
Located near the Xinyi Shopping District, Elephant Mountain, also known as Nangang District Hiking Trail and Xiangshan, is among the most popular trails and highlights of Taipei. The spectacular views provide picturesque landscape and cityscape photo opportunities or a phenomenal backdrop to relax and reflect. The best time to visit is during sunrise or sunset, and it helps when the whether is clear as the views can be seen for kilometers.
Much of the trail leading from city are paved staircases with railing to allow many users to frequent the path throughout the day. The total hike takes about 15-20 minutes to the top. There are two primary stopping points to take in picturesque views of the city. Boulders are positioned to provide optimal viewing if you are able-bodied enough to climb them. But be prepared to wait for access.
Elephant mountain is a must-do in Taipei. The IMBA Buddy Program provides the opportunity to check this off the Taipei bucket list early, and do so with your wonderful classmates. Be sure to contact your Buddy group leader and don't miss this event!
