Yangmingshan Qingtiangang|Circle Trail

The Qingtiangang Ring Trail starts from the Tugong Temple in Lingtouyan. Along the way, it will pass through the Central Grassland Trail, the Yangmingshan Ranch Education and Interpretation Center, the fork of the Penny Mountain Bunker, and the gate of Jinbaoli Road. The trail does not undulate much. , the whole process is about2.4 km, if you walk seriously, it can be completed in about one to two hours. But most people only go back and forth to the Central Grassland Trail, which is also the most beautiful and well-planned trail~

Yangmingshan Qingtiangang | Prairie

The field of vision along the trail is very broad, with green prairie on the left and right sides, and there are layers of mountains in the distance, which are as beautiful as foreign countries under the sunlight! On this day, we also saw many tourists carrying simple ingredients and picnic mats, sitting on the turf and admiring the cows and the beautiful scenery, feeling very happy🥰 Also because there are grasslands along the way, there is almost no shelter, there is a "Sun Valley" here say. In summer, you need to do sunscreen and add moisture regularly to prevent heat stroke, and in winter, you are easy to get a headache from the wind. Remember to bring a jacket to keep warm!

▲Under the long-term grazing of cattle, this place has become a vast grassland landscape.

Yangmingshan Qingtiangang|Cow herd

But where did these herds come from? In fact, Yangmingshan has been a good place for grazing since the end of the Qing Dynasty. Farmers would entrust cattle here when they were not cultivating the land. Later, after the industrial structure changed, the number of farmers gradually decreased, and the place was also converted into a national park. Some cattle have not been brought back by the farmer, and after breeding, they have become what we see now, and have become the unique feature of Qingtiangang!

Seeing the cows lying lazily on the turf makes me really happy! However, these herds are wild, and cattle have even attacked humans in the past, so the park later implemented the separation of humans and cattle, and you can enjoy the cattle through the fence more safely on the central trail. However, there is no fence on the trail behind the finish line. In addition to maintaining a proper distance and avoiding actively provoking the cattle, if you are really attacked by the cattle, you must hide behind the cattle shelter to protect yourself!

Yangmingshan Qingtiangang|Lingtouyan Digong Temple

At the back of Lingtouyan Tudi Gong Temple, there is also a small stone-built Tudi Gong Temple with a long history. You still need to bend over to worship! Early travelers passed by this time, and they would especially pray for safety. It has a history of 200 years. In the Qing Dynasty, local residents moved here from the settlement of Zhuzishan. Later, the new Fude Palace in front of them continued the incense.

The above is our simple record in Qingtiangang this time~ This time, we only visited the central trail of the grassland, and we look forward to seeing the cows together after Little Orange🍊 joins our journey in the future. Every time I visit Qingtiangang Trail, another trail always comes to Jeffy's mind, which is located in Gongliao, which also has large grasslands and cattle.Taoyuan Valley Trail, the difficulty is more difficult than Qingtiangang, friends who like animals and grasslands may wish to try it too!
