Section 5: MRT Jiantan Station to Bishanyan

This section is full of historical and cultural traces. We can witness the laborious word of early settlers and the military tension of the past era. Along the scenic path, river, sunset, and other natural landscapes are on view. Today’s prosperous and busy Taipei and its iconic Taipei 101 tower are seen in the far-off distance. We also pass through precious forest and insect ecosystems along the way. Leaving the hustling city, the mountain ambience brings calm, and the aria of nature can be heard.
