The mountain has faults running across the southeast and northwest contours with volcanic landforms like hot springs and fumaroles.

七星山主峰是台北市第一高峰, 步道經過整理, 不算難走, 但絕對需要不錯的體力跟腳力, 尤其是東峰和主峰間的那段! 交通方式建議從捷運劍潭站搭小15上冷水坑服務中心再開始爬, 千萬不要開車, 仰德大道假日有管制不說, 光排隊等停車場就夠浪費時間了 沿途風景很美, 登頂後鳥瞰台北盆地, 光這個景色就值得了. 可以跟夢幻湖排成一個半日遊行程, 建議早去午回, 比較涼爽, 人也比較少 more »The main peak of the seven-star mountain is the first peak of Taipei City, the trail has been sorted, not to walk, but the need for not a good force and force, especially the peak and the main peak between the period! The mode of transportation is built to build a small 15 on the cold water pit service center to start climbing, thousands of do not open, Yoande Avenue holiday has no control, light row and other stoptime on the time of the waves is very beautiful, after the visit to the Taipei Basin, this view is worth it. Can line up with the magic lake a half-day trip, build early to go back to noon, than cool, people are less than
たくさんの登山者がいる山で、山の頂上にたくさんの登山者がいるのが見えますが、インスタントラーメンを作るためにたくさんの道具を持ってくる人もいます。 山を下る人は少ないので、一人で行かないことをお勧めします。 more »You can see a lot of climbers on the mountain top, but some people bring a lot of tools to make instant noodles. Since there are few people going down the mountain, it is recommended not to go alone.
A fun weekend getaway with hosts we went up to Yang Ming of which this was part I believe. Hot springs and scenic trails. Later went with classmate on a return trip later. Breathtaking view.
The view and windiness up there is amazing. Not a very difficult mountain to climb up, very beginner friendly. Managed to climb up from the base of Yangmingshan station in slippers. Bring along water though as there aren’t any water coolers or stations throughout the climb up.
