Elephant Mountain Hiking Trail

Tara Anne Nikezic
The hiking trail is located close to the Xinyi Shopping District and Taipei 101. To get there from the base of Taipei 101, walk east on Xinyi Road for two blocks until you reach MRT Xiangshan Station in about 15 minutes. The best time to hike the mountain is during late afternoon, and catch the sunset as well as a daytime view and stunning nighttime view of the city. It’s a 15-20 minute hike from the base of Elephant Mountain to the top viewing point.
