A trip to Dongyan Mountain

In the middle of April, my family and I took a hike in DongYan mountain in Tao Yuan county. It took us about an hour and half to get there by car. Travelers may run into congested traffic condition on their way there during the weekend rush. If you drive down from Taipei, you may consider taking the province road #7 starting from Sanxia so you can avoid the probable traffic jam in CiHu by taking #4. The admission to the recreatoin park is 100 NTDs per adult plus an extra 100 NTDs for parking inside. You may pull your car somewhere outside the entrance to save some money on that.

You will get a map when you enter the park (for inside car parking only). Following each trail on the map will take you to different places, but here I strongly suggest that you try the one for getting up to the top mountain. Not only is the view along the trail pretty, but what is on the highest point of the mountain is also fantastic. Don't miss out! I took some beautiful pictures of the sight and they really look so picturesque.
