Hike up the paved stairs, with water and tissues prepared by your guide, and enjoy your 1.9-kilometer trekking experience. Reach the first spot 15 minutes after starting with a wonderful view of Taipei, but the best is yet to come. Experience every Instagrammer's favorite spot, the Six Giant Stones at the top of the trail, which offers breathtaking views of the city's tallest tower, Taipei 101.
