Do you want to take a short trip without traveling too far this weekend? Despite the dropping temperatures, here are some relaxing places you can visit in northern Taiwan for your next #Instaworthy story.
冷水坑步道 ｜Lengshuikeng Trail
The best time to visit the Yangmingshan National Park is during the Silver Grass Season, which is also the perfect season to talk a stroll along the Lengshuikeng Trail.
Every November, you’ll find yourself engulfed by creamy silver grasses on the Lengshuiken Trail as if you’ve just entered a fairy-tale world.
If you’re burdened with stress at work or school, this is the right place that will definitely loosen you up. Moreover, Lengshuikeng Trail is child-friendly and highly accessible.

小隱潭瀑布 ｜ Xiaoyin Pond Waterfall
The second hidden spot is Xiaoyin Pond Waterfall located in Yangmingshan National Park. Unlike its name which implies “covert” in Chinese, Xiaoyin Pond Waterfall is a few minutes away from the nearby bus stop.
The color of Xiaoyin Pond is surprisingly unscientific; the sulfur-rich water sometimes greets tourists with a milky-white appearance, while other times it comes on the scene with the fascinating Tiffany blue.
With such a unique and diversified appearance, no wonder the charm of Xiaoyin Pond Waterfall is irresistible.

下七股野溪溫泉 ｜Xia Qi Gu Hot Spring
Commonly known as the “milky hot spring”, Xia Qi Gu Hot Spring is the only legal wild spring in Yangmingshan National Park.
This area is geologically active and abounds with sulfur, which exudes a tangy and distinctive smell.
This hot spring is specifically reputed to have a number of therapeutic benefits. Nothing can live up to a chilling afternoon by enjoying the hot spring and picturesque surroundings.
