Jiantan Mountain

Hiking in Shilin

The mountain rises behind the Grand Hotel and has great views over the Keelung River basin and city, including Taipei 101. To access the trailhead, cross Zhongshan N Rd from Jiantan MRT; look for the steps up the hillside just to the left of the little temple. The main route runs to Neihu and takes about two hours to finish if you don't get lost!
