This moderately strenuous 10km hike starts on a dirt and paved stone trail and is not very steep. However, the highlight of the hike is the Hongludi Nanshan Fude Temple, dedicated to Tudigong (Chinese God of Earth) and you need to climb 1200 steps to reach it! This is the workout section of the hike. There is a huge statue of the Earth God on the roof with two big dragons on either side. Inside the temple there are several different gods who are in charge of different aspects of life: romance, good fortune, etc. From the temple you have a beautiful view of Taipei city. On our way down we will pass a small, but well-decorated Burmese-style temple and we finish back at the Nanshijiao MRT Station. This hike requires a reasonable level of fitness.
