Is It Necessary To Join Day Tours To See The Nature Attractions At Yangmingshan?
Yes, especially if you want to get the most from your trip.
Unlike some hiking trails in Taipei are accessible easily by metro, it takes more than one hour from door to door for the one-way trip to Yangmingshan.
The commuting time is longer if you miss the bus or train connection. Also, some tours include guided tours where the guide shows you the hidden gems!
If you only have a few days in Taipei but want to see nature, it’s best to participate in a guided tour to save time and get the best from your trip.

Private Yangmingshan Volcano Tour
Yangmingshan (陽明山) is one of the must-visit places to explore nature in Taipei since there are many things to see: waterfalls, hiking, a hot spring, and a volcano!
Most people visit Yangmingshan for hiking and hot spring, but only a few know it has a volcano!
Don’t panic; there’s been no volcanic activity for over 100 years. However, Yangmingshan is still worth visiting for its unique and breathtaking view of the post-volcanic geological park – Xiaoyoukeng (小油坑) and Qingtiangang (擎天岡) Hiking Trails.
