Xiangshan (Chinese: 象山), also known as Elephant Mountain or Mount Elephant, is a mountain in Xinyi District, Taipei, Taiwan. It is close to the Taipei Metro Xiangshan Station. It is 183 m high and has a hiking trail about 1.5 km long. The Taipei 101 can be seen from the trail. The Six Giant Rocks are a tourist attraction in Xiangshan, and there are platforms for photographers.
"Xiangshan" means "Elephant Mountain" in Chinese. Xiangshan's name comes from its elephant-like shape.

One of the most attractive tourist destinations in Taipei, Taiwan and located close to Taipei 101. It is located within Xinyi district, Taipei, Taiwan and nearest metro station is Xiangshan. It is 180 m high and hiking trail is about 1.5 km long. Hiking is a bit tiring but I am sure you will love the views especially at night. The view of Taipei 101 is priceless. A must visit place for everyone visiting Taipei, Taiwan.

Easy to follow even if maps do not have english translation. Straightforward climb. Benches for resting and drinking water available. Spectacular view!

Very nice trailing path for hiking in Taipei with a wonderful overview of the city if you go all the way up. The hike is very exhausting, so make sure to bring enough water, especially during the summer. It’s possible to walk from the entry of the elephant mountain to the Taipei101, it’s not that far.

Why is it called Elephant Mountain? Because an ancient Elephant civilisation built it eons ago using astounding Elephant techniques and advanced Elephant technology. How do we know this? Simple; it looks like an elephant. Great views, giant orb spiders, and sweaty tourists.

Probably the best view you can get in Taipei. Better spend some energy on those stairs instead of spending money on that elevator in Taipei 101. There will be plenty of people during sunset. But it's still not too crowded, since plenty of tourists give up at the first location. Go all the way up to the rocks and you'll meet dozens of amateur photographers fighting to get that same picture. Still, I also took part in this battle of Elephant Mountain. It was fun.
