New Taipei

New Taipei City (formerly Taipei County) has a large number of hiking opportunities within easy reach of Taipei. Richard Saunders’s Taipei Escapes guidebooks (Vol 1 and Vol 2) contain a lot of great hiking in New Taipei that I have barely started exploring. My favorite area is the Pingxi Valley that has close to 10 waterfalls along the Pingxi Rail Line. Shifen Waterfall and Golden Waterfall are the most famous but the Sandiaoling Waterfall Trail (quite famous amongst expats) is one of the best waterfall hikes in Taiwan.
