According to the Geotechnical Engineering Office (GEO), the elevation of the Bishan Camping Ground is 350 meters above sea level and located between Daluntou Mountain and Dalunwei Mountain. The camp site is designed to reflect the concept of “humans coexisting with nature” and comprises forest trails, camping zone, forest camp area, and an elevated walkway. It is also a hub with routes leading to destinations such as Bishanyan, Bashihu Suspension Bridge, and Daluntou Mountain.

 

Chief Pan of GEO’s Forest Recreation Section pointed out that the camping ground is located at the summit of Bishan in Neihu. The elevated walkway provides visitors with an excellent view of Baishihu Suspoension Bridge and airplanes as they approach Songshan Airport. The minimal light pollution in the vicinity makes it a great place to observe the fireworks at Taipei 101.
