This moderately strenuous hike begins at the Yongchun MRT Station and takes us up to the top of Xiangshan (Elephant Mountain) for some stunning views of Taipei city below. Led by Jennifer, the first part of the trip is easy and offers some very nice scenery of flowers, streams and rock cliffs. But that is just our warm up. Starting from the Baoshan trailhead (about 20 minutes walk from the MRT), we will climb up some stairs and work our way up until we reach the beautiful Tianbao Temple. At the temple we will be able to see a huge statue carved into the cliff side. Then, we will climb some steep stone steps to the top of Elephant Mountain, catch our breath and enjoy a panoramic view of Taipei 101. We then make our descent down some very steep steps and walk to the Xiangshan MRT station. Sturdy shoes with a good grip are essential. A hiking pole may help with the steps. Bring water, snacks and sun/rain/insect protection.
