Northern Taiwan

For many travelers, heading outside Taipei into the north gives them their first taste of how big this little island is. It's not just that there are mountains reaching up to 13,000 ft (3886m). It's that those mountains – and their valleys and meadows – seem near endless, and that around every corner is a rustic hot-spring village, forest reserve or indigenous hamlet.
