Located in the northern basin of Taipei, Yangmingshan National Park lies in the Shilin and Beitou districts and spreads into the townships of Tamsui, Sanzhi, Ximen, Jinshan, and Wanli to make up a total area of 11,338 sq. hectares. Its elevation ranges between 200 and 1,120 meters.
Yangmingshan National Park is located in the north of Beitou District. It belongs to the area of Datun Mountain. It was once called Grass Mountain due to the whole area being covered with nothing but merely grass. It was renamed Yangmingshan National Park in 1950. As soon as you enter the gates of the park, the impressive sight of a huge fountain surrounded by colorful flowers will catch your eye.
The blossom season takes place in February and March. During this time, vast numbers of tourists are drawn by the colorful trees in blossom. A traffic restriction law is enforced to limit the number of cars on the mountain to a safe number. The main road to Yangmingshan isn’t very wide, so traffic jams are a problem during the blossom season. A more convenient mode of transportation is the Blossom Buses, which is a service provided by Yangmingshan National Park to the public.
