Join Dory for a hike in the rocky, wooded hills above Beitou and Wellington Heights following a network of trails with which connect the well-known landmarks of Battleship Rock (or 'Dog's Head Rock') and the unique Lovers' Temple. The highest point is only 164 meters, but from a large rocky area you can sit and enjoy commanding views of Guanyinshan and the Tamsui River. The route finishes at the Xinbeitou MRT with a short visit to one of Taipei's most unusual tourist attractions—the amazing Thermal Valley, a large natural pool of near-boiling hot spring water. This hike has some stairs, dirt trails and one rocky area with ropes to help you climb up. The hike is about 6K with a 340M elevation change. Possibly strenuous for beginners, moderately strenuous for experienced hikers, we recommend a reasonable level of fitness for this hike. Please wear proper footwear—shoes with a good grip are best. Bring water, lunch and sun/rain protection as needed.
