Tucked into the southeastern hills around Taipei are the trails of the Four Beasts Mountains. The tour book says it’s an easy 20 minutes to the peak of Elephant Mountain, but it doesn’t say it’s 20 minutes of steps. The Elephant Mountain trail is well known to the residents of that part of the city and well worth a visit. The rocks at the peak are coveted as spots from which to see the city and photograph sunsets on clear days and the city lights at night.
