From the Jiantan MRT Station we will travel by public bus up to Yangmingshan (YMS) and will begin our hike from the parking lot at Lengshuikeng, a popular destination due to the free hot springs. We will see the famous Milk Pond, so named because the water looks like milk due to precipitated sulfur deposits in the lake. Next, we will cross the Jingshan Suspension Bridge. You can take a photo on the bridge and have Qixingshan (Seven Star Mtn.) as the backdrop. We will pass along a forest trail toward Qingtiangang but will take a turn which will lead us to Juansi Waterfall. In Chinese, juansi means “spun silk.” The water crashing over the rocks on its way down is said to resemble spun silk. From Juansi we will walk to YMS Park and take the bus back to the Jiantan MRT Station. This hike is about 5K with 360M descending. It is mostly along stone paved trails with more downhill than uphill. (For someone with knee problems, please note.) Overall, it is a moderately strenuous hike for beginners and easy for regular hikers. Please wear proper footwear—shoes with a good grip are best. Bring your EasyCard for the bus; and water, lunch and sun/rain/insect protection as needed.
