Qingtiangang Grassland is situated in the heart of the Datun Mountain Range. It is a flat, saddle-shaped area encircled by Mt. Zhuzi, Mt. Qigu, Mt. Ding and Mt. Huangzui that used to be a terrace formed by lava from Mt. Zhugao. With gently rolling meadows and dazzling verdancy, the evenly surfaced Qingtiangang is a wonderful outdoor classroom for grassland observation, and the most popular hiking destination in Yangmingshan National Park, with a foot path impressively lined with undulating grass and stumpy shrubs. Once you arrive, there is a toilet next to the small store and it is recommended to use a toilet before walking on the trail, otherwise there is no toilet along the way. For those who want to go directly to Qintiangang, there's the bus 101 and Small 15 that goes directly to the Qintiangang visitor centers. The you're lucky, you'll get to catch sightings of the buffalos. The kids love watching them, just in their natural surroundings, be one with nature. If you are going on the end of summer, you can appreciate Miscanthus too! If you've hiked up to Qintiangang from Lengshueikeng, there's buses available to bring you back. During the weekend, it is a long wait to get on the bus so be mindful when you're making your way down. There are also some hot springs in Yangmingshan where you can relax while enjoying the beautiful views from the mountain.
