Join this Parkbus Taiwan tour and you'll get a chance to explore one of Northern Taiwan's most iconic hikes, combined with a brief visit to one of Northern Taiwan's most picturesque cultural sites - all in one day!

Join Parkbus Taiwan for a unique day trip hike and cultural visit in Northern Taiwan. Teapot Mountain is one of Taiwan's most picturesque hiking destinations on Taiwan's north coast. 

This tour will begin at the trailhead of Teapot Mountain, overlooking Taiwan's rugged north coast, Keelung Mountain and the famous YingYang Sea. Short by steep ascent up a stair and compact soil path way, the group will hike as a group, taking in the absolutely spectacular views over the emerald mountains and turquiose ocean. About 1.5km into the hike the trail transitions with more challenging hiking for a short distance. 

At this point there are several sections that require some bouldering and rock scrambling. There is one section in particular that should be noted. A 10m climb using ropes to climb a near vertical rock face is required. There are clear and easy foot holds and this sections requires hikers to have decent arm strength to hold on. Another section requires hikers to scramble through a small rock enclave. This doesn't require any technical skills; just some flexibility.

From here the group well continue heading south towards Mt. Banping (半屏山). The trail follows a wide ridge line with little shade, but the trail itself is in good condition and isn't difficult. After another 1.5km, the group will connect on to a hard surface roadway. Another 1.5km hike west will bring us to a small turn off to begin our descent down towards the Jinguashi Gold Museum area.

Arriving at the Gold Museum Tourist Information Center (黃金博物館遊客服務中心), the group will board our private transportation and head to Jiufen Old Street for a short visit. Guests can leave their backpacks on the shuttle, while they enjoy a short walk through the famous old street. Jiufen is one of Taiwan's most iconic cultural sites and this brief stop will have the group walk together from the top end of the old street, down to the bottom. Guests will have a chance to take pictures and purchase snacks and treats from the many food vendors on site. We estimate about 30-45 minutes to explore this site. Once the group arrives at the bottom of the old street, they will be picked up by their private transportation and taken directly back, in comfort, to Taipei Main Station and the end of a fantastic day out in Taiwan's amazing nature!
