You get to view Jin-shan Plain from afar on the northeast side and overlook Great Taipei Basin on the southwest side.
This Swiss-like grassland is a super hot attraction.
Qing-tian-gang is like a hub for Yangmingshan trails. Going along Qing-tian-gang trail, you can get to trails in Jan-sih Waterfall, Bamboo Lake, Jin-shan, Fonggueiko, Nay-hu, etc.
Qing-tian-gang Circular Trail
There is a Qing-tian-gang Circular Trail in addition to other scenic spots. Taking a spin around it isn't too strenuous. It allows you to check out various types of gorgeous scenery throughout the hill.
It offers different types of scenery all year round. It's absolutely romantic when heavy mist abounds.
If you walk around the circular trail, you'll see cows grazing, military bunkers and soon to be newly-weds taking photos, giving you a tangled and complicated image.
Qing-tian-gang was in fact a ranch during the Japanese colonial era. There were over seventeen hundred cows in its heyday; however, only tens of them remain now.
Qing-tian-gang is also Taipei City's vantage point. It used to be a restricted zone during Cold War.
As shown on the stone in the picture, a military post was stationed here preventing enemy amphibious landings and airborne operations.
Before arriving at Qing-tian-gang, Lengshueikeng is an attraction also worth visiting.
There is a public hot spring area. The spring quality is topnotch. Best of all, it's free. Be sure to check the opening hours.
There is also a Qi-xing Mountain Trail entrance nearby.
