07/27 - Taipingshan National Forest & Cueifeng Lake Trip

Product Number: PBTW004-0727
From Taipei
☀️☀️☀️ Trail Rating: Easy, Moderate ☀️☀️☀️ Join Parkbus Taiwan for an amazing day out in Taipingshan National Forest Recreation Area, a stunning protected area about 2.5 hours south of Taipei in Yilan County. This park has over 15km of trails and features a unique mountain train. Guests interested in this tour can also select to join our tour add-on to visit Cueifeng Lake, one of Taiwan's highest natural lakes. 

Trip Overview

Parkbus Taiwan will offer direct, reservable, and same-day return bus service from Taipei, allowing guests to experience this difficult-to-get-to protected area at their own pace. There are 8 distinctive trails featured in this protected area, each offering different experiences. Walk through an ancient Cypress forest that is perfect for forest bathing with many ‘fallen giants’, and old-growth trees decomposing into the forest floor. Due to the high elevation and proximity to the Pacific Ocean, the park is often blanketed in fog, giving this forested area the feel of the temperate rainforests of North America's Pacific Northwest. The Jiancing Historic Trail is a short (2.5km return) trail but is filled with old remnants of forest train tracks and trestle bridges. This trail is flat and easy and can get busy later in the day.

For those guests staying in the main part of the park, we encourage buying tickets (not included) to the famous Bong Bong Train. Originally used to transport timber throughout the region, this heritage train now offers visitors a unique perspective of a bygone era! Perched along a mountain’s edge, whether sunny or foggy, this train is a fantastic experience for all. Several trails can only be accessed by taking the Bong Bong Train to a remote section of the park.

For those guests traveling up to Cueifeng Lake (see Add-on details below), they will have the choice to hike either the Cueifong Lake Circular Trail or the famous National Taiwan Beech Trail. Cueifong Lake is one of Taiwan's highest natural lakes and is circumnavigated by a looped trail of about 4km. The trailhead starts from the western end of the lake and is stunningly scenic. With portions built on old tracks of forest railway, the entire loop with take you 2.5 hours with several stops at viewing platforms overlooking the lake. The National Taiwan Beech Trail is longer at just over 7km in length and is also located near Cueifong Lake. This trail connects visitors with an area filled with rare Taiwanese Beech trees. The first 2km+ of this trail is built on the old forest railway and is relatively easy to hike. It takes 3 hours for a round trip.
