It was extremely windy and sunny when we visited. The fumaroles were interesting and were easy to walk to along the boardwalk.

Must see when you visit in Taipei. There is a real volcano under your feet! Visit for free, except for the cheap parking fee. 第一次造訪此處便被眼前的景象所震撼,這裡絕對有成為國際景點的潛力,可以感受到大屯火山群真實的就在我們周圍。

After we visited the National Palace Museum, we had few hours before we had to go the airport. So, a visit to this volcanic mountain is a good educational visit. However, lots of cloud so we can only see not that far.

The scenic trail can be reached by turning right on the Xiaoguanyin stop on Yangjin Highway. It is approx 805 meters above sea level and is famed for the fumaroles, sulfur crystals, hot springs and spectacular 'landslide terrain' formed by post-volcanic activity.

It was very unfortunate as it was raining. We barely could see anything in the valley. There were a few spots with small fumaroles and some people even touched the bubbling water
