Taiwan – Yangmingshan National Park
From Taipei you can get to the NP by shuttle bus S15 from Jiantan Station. The journey takes about an hour and comes out at 15 TWD. We perform in Yangmingshan at the Lengshuikeng Visitor Center, located just at the foot of Qixingshan Mountain.
We admire many species of beautiful butterflies which are not afraid of us and pose in front of the camera. The paths are well kept in the park because, besides beautiful butterflies, you can meet even poisonous spiders and snakes. And that we really meet a lot of spiders on the way! We do not even want to think if one of them is not poisonous.
At the visitor center, you can take a map where all possible routes are clearly marked. You have no place to go by the way, because all the roads are well marked and mostly go along the rocky roads.
Nature is virgin. Sometimes we feel like we were in a primaveal forest and not just a few miles from the capital. We live waterfalls, streams, interesting trees, flowers, birds are baptizing over our heads. There is also a very nice climate, in contrast to the hot city, there is a chill and clean fresh air.
Dense tree and bush cover gives this place an almost primeval atmosphere. It is unbelievable that just a few miles from Taipei you will be transferred to a completely different world of wildlife.
Many residents of the capital use a convenient bus connection to Yangmingshan and go to relax here. Definitely go here too. This trip is also a great choice if you only travel to Taiwan for another flight and you have at least one day off.
