HikingEdit

 
Hiking on a knife-edge ridge at Wuliaojian
  • 2 Wuliaojian (五寮尖 Wǔliáojiān) (Take the Taipei metro to Dingpu Station, then catch a taxi for NT$300–400 or Uber for more. Getting back is a little trickier, but you can call a taxi or Uber from the convenience store at the trailhead or take a bus). A very strenuous and challenging hike, including many steep rocky sections with ropes to pull yourself up. But the hard work is rewarded with incredible views of the mountains, including segments of the trails that go along knife-edge ridges. Bring gloves (to protect your hands from rope burn), snacks, and plenty of water. Takes about six hours for experienced hikers; inexperienced hikers should not attempt. Rock climbing experience is not required. Try to stick to the main trails, as the less-used trails can be overgrown and slippery. No permit or entry fee is needed.

MuseumsEdit

  • 3 New Taipei City Hakka Museum (新北市客家文化園區). A museum about the Hakka people. The museum total area spans over 4.03 hectares.
