Elephant Mountain hike

Taiwan Highlight Elephant Mountain hike

Climb the four peaks of the elephant mountain and at each peak you’ll be speechless (OK, also because you are out of breath). The views of the city and the iconic Taipei 101 are magnificent. The way up is only stairs, but takes just about 15-20 minutes. Remember to take a right at the fork after the first flight of stairs.
