Xishan National Forest Park (西山国家森林公园)

6 Xishan Nan Lu
Xishan is both the biggest national forest park in the city and the closest to town. Built over a sprawling mountainside vista, the park boasts kilometres of well-maintained trails. There's not much to do here beyond wandering through the woodland paths, but with fewer historical artefacts than its more famous neighbour, the Fragrant Hills, it also offers peaceful solitude – once you're up the mountain, you'll hardly see another soul. Walk all the way up to 'The Rock of Ghost Laugh', the highest point on the mountain, for one hell of a view.
