Smooth path and wide stone steps —suitable for non-professionals.

Beautiful sunset, airplanes taking off and landing, and limitless view of the coastline.

A small temple inside a big temple — a wondrous scene of “temple within temple” hidden in the green forest.


Are you still craving for another adventure after conquering Yangchuo Forest Trail? Wujiutongshan Footpath nearby invites you to get to know Luzhu from a brand new perspective! Wujiutongshan Footpath is 4 kilometers long and consists of 5 trials. The height difference is 80 meters which will make you sweat and challenge your limits!

The name of Wujiutongshan Footpath dates back to the Ming Dynasty. Mr. Tsai and his five alcoholic sons moved to this place. Each of them drank a bucket at a time. Thus, the place was named Wujiutongshan (five wine buckets mountain). Another saying goes that villagers in the past would take their cows to drink water here. Thus, the name Niusuitongshan (cow water bucket mountain) came along and was phonetically turned into Wujiutongshan nowadays. 
On holidays, Nantien Gong on Changxing Road is always packed with pious believers and hikers. The hiking gate to Nankanshan Footpath at Nantien Gong Parking Lot was funded and built by passionate hikers. The 170-step stone staircase named “Yingguang Love Stairs” is mild and safe. Following the concrete path passes Chunchiu Pavilion, the 155-meter high Nankanshan is a great spot to overlook the Taiwan Strait and the international airport. There is another trail named Liufu Footpath that also leads to Wujiutongshan which is slightly covert and bumpy.
Passing by Wangyiu Pavilion, sculptures of five wine jars are frequently seen along the way.The Wujiutongshan Resting Pavilion where you can overlook the Guanyin Statue is also where other trails meet. Continue straight and you will arrive at the Fude Ancient Road. Turn left and you will connect to Haishan Road and Huanshan Footpath. Luntou Fude Temple is located at the intersection of the two paths. The intriguing scene of a temple within a temple attracts many visitors. The highest point of the trail is the peak of Shanbishan where Chinese silver grass flourishes in fall and turns the mountain into curious white.

    Lovely walk near taoyuan airport

    Traveler rating:4 2015-08

    NOTE: Access road is about 300m north of the point given on the tripadvisor map along Zhangxing Rd. The perfect outing if you want to stretch your legs between flights. Less than half hour by taxi from airport, even closer if you are staying in taoyuan. Main track is about 1km paved, with viewing platform on summit at 155m above sea level. All through forest and above the smog. Birds, butterflies, plants and views.Return same way, or find road through golf course on the other side. Lots of little side tracks, a temple and other interesting things along the way. Descriptions only in Chinese. 5 min from Tai Mall where we spent the other half of our layover.
