How to greet the dawn on the top of Elephant Mountain in Taiwan

How to do?

1. A few trek routs lead to the top of Elephant Mountain. All of them starts on Lane 150 that is a 8-minute walk from Xiangshan metro station.

2. Climbing up and down the mountain takes about one hour. The route is concrete steps, steep inclined in places. If you want to feel solitude at the top - climb up early in the morning on week days. But the most beautiful time to take panoramic shoots - at sunset.
