Mt. Ding - Mt. Shiti Trail Tour

The "Mt. Ding - Mt. Shiti" is a very beautiful and leisurely trail in the eastern part of the Yangmingshan National Park. The combination of carpet grass and lush peacock pine forest gives visitors an experience of riding a train through green fields and a green tunnel. The peacock pine forest is reminiscent of a Moso bamboo forest and is a very comfortable and tranquil casual hiking trail.
