Qingtiangang Grassland Trails (擎天崗)
A mountain-top flatland park, Qingtiangang provides amazing views of Yangmingshan National Park.
By definition a lava terrace, the area was formed as a result of volcanic activity in the mountains nearby. After the eruption of Mt. Zhugao, the lava flowed north towards the area, creating this unique landscape.
During the Japanese occupation, the area was established as a ranch for cattle to graze. The park is still home to cows and other wildlife.
This area of Yangmingshan is very easily shrouded in clouds due to its elevation.
