Yang Ming Shan National Park (阳明山国家公园) - Taiwan (台湾) 2011 (Part 3)

Last year, I made my first visit to Taiwan, R.O.C. I was very busy after I got back and never got a chance to look through them and pick out the photos I'm going to post. I finally took out enough time to finish, so... Here they are! I did not take many photo there as the tropical weather made me very sick. I will be splitting them into a total of 8 parts. I hope you enjoy viewing them!

All photos from today is from Yang Ming Shan National Park (阳明山国家公园). This is only some of the photos I took in the park. The rest of the photos will be posted in the next blog post.


Yang Ming Shan National Park is one of the 8 national parks in Taiwan. The national park is located between Taipei City and New Taipei City. The park it self is a volcanic basin with hot springs, marshes, ponds, and steam vents. Locals go there often to bathe in the hot springs. They believe the hot spring water is good for your health and helps relieve stress.

After a long bus right from Taipei, this is where we stopped. Last station on the bus service.  


Near one of the visitor centers and gift shop.  

A beetle I spotted on the ground.  

A sign in one of the visitor centers. It shows the different wildlife in the park.  

This is one of the tourist attractions, but I forgot the name. If you know, tell me in the comments below! 

Road on the mountain. I thought it would make a good effect on the picture.  

So apparently I met this parakeet breeder there. She raises parakeets and sells them. Aren't they cute?  

The syringe contains a seed mixture for young birds.  

 The mountains are covered with dense vegetation.

The marsh areas are covered with boardwalks to make it easier on the tourists.  

Steam vents on the side of the mountain. 

That is all today. The hot spring photos will be coming in the next blog post. I hope you have enjoyed it! Also, if you know the name of the place I don't know, please tell me in the comments below! Please share the blog post with your friends! Thanks for viewing!
