Just 7 miles away from downtown Taipei City, Yangmingshan National Park is the 3rd national park in Taiwan that covers a wide area of volcanic geological features, whereas the famous Beitou Hot Spring is nearby.

In this tour, you are offered a unique opportunity to explore these volcanic landforms, learn about the history of the development of Taiwan’s Hot Spring, and enjoy a relaxing hot spring foot bath.

Meet your tour guide and driver in the morning, then take a 30-40 min ride to the nearest national park in Taipei.

On the way to Yangmingshan National Park you will stop by Taipei Public Library Beitou Branch. Located in Beitou Park and near Beitou Hot Spring Museum, this beautiful library was selected by travel website When On Earth as one of the 10 Coolest Examples of “Green Buildings”, and the famous online culture magazine Flavorwire as one of The 25 Most Beautiful Public Libraries in the World.

Beitou Hot Spring Museum was built during the Japanese colonial era. The Tudor-style building has a brick and wood facade and black tile roofing, the 1st level is consisted with a small bath and a large bath with a piece of Hokutolite Stone weighing 800 kilograms displayed at a corner. The 2nd level is consisted with a huge Tatami lobby and a balcony with a special exhibition area that has early Taiwanese film documents displayed. This is a good spot to learn about Beitou's rich hot spring culture and history.

Geothermal Valley is not far away from the library, which is one of the sources that supply this area’s hot spring. Because of the high temperature, the sulfuric steam fog rises from the pool’s surface; hence it is also called Hell Valley or Ghost Lake.

The next stop is Yangmingshan Flower Clock, the centerpiece of the national park, near the bus station and visitor information center. The flower plants change by seasons, where visitors can enjoy the bloom all year round. Then you will visit Yangming Shu-Wu Mansion, also known as Zhongxing Guesthouse, is the summer residence of the late president Chiang Kai-shek for reception of important foreign guests. Today the mansion has become an important site for Taiwan’s history and natural environments.

After that you will visit the most popular spot in this national park – Xiaoyoukeng (literally means "little oil pit"), is a post-volcanic geological landscape area, where you can see and smell the steam coming from these cracks, and feel the breath of a dormant volcano. Then you will visit Qingtiangang, a lava terrace formed when the lava flowed north after the eruption. The terrace was once a ranch for water buffalos grazing during the period under Japanese rules; even today you can still find those naturally bred water buffaloes there.

The last stop is Lengshuikeng(literally means “cold water pit”), a barrier lake formed by the volcanic lava flowing down from the mountain. The hot spring water is colder than the other areas’ (around 40 degree Celsius); hence its name was given Lengshuikeng.

Before the tour comes to the end, you will enjoy a hot spring foot bath that gives a relief to aching feet and release the tension of the muscle. After the tour you may choose to disembark at Shihlin Night Market and enjoy the local street foods, or go back to your hotel and rest.
