Looking like a teapot without a handle Teapot mountain hike will be one you will be sure to remember. A quick drive outside Taipei and you will be climbing a mountain that will give you one of the most breathtaking views of the northeast coast of Taiwan. This hike starts out at the Jinguashi Ecological Museum. Hike up to viewing platforms, scramble over boulders and pull yourself up ropes to get to the top. After you complete this amazing hike head over to Jiufen, Shifen or Longdong climbing area. This is a hike for the adventurous and those with a moderate amount of physical ability.
