At the top, there's a café and shop as well as the temple.

Enjoy fine views along the way, overlooking fields and the coastline. There are also a few historic spots.

There's a pleasant 2-km hike on paved paths up to the Buddhist temple at the top of Kinmen's highest point.


Mount Taiwu is situated at the center of Kinmen Island. Though it is only 253 meters high, it is the highest mountain in Kinmen. Mount Taiwu is an important place that commemorates Taiwan Strait Battle of August 23rd. Apart from climbing up to the top view point and hiking, the mountain is filled with cultural heritage such as Wu Wang Zai Ju and Haiin Temple, which are unique attractions in Kinmen.Taiwu Mountain
There are four routes for climbing Mount Taiwu: Qianshan, Houshan, Caicuo Historic Trail, and Doumen Historic Trail. Qianshan is the start of Yuzhang Road to the north of the Mount Taiwu Public Cemetery. Houshan is the end of Yuzhang Road beside Pingtung Wenkang Center. Doumen and Caicuo Historic Trails are steeper and more challenging. It takes around two hours to climb Mount Taiwu. Yet, considering the historic attractions and scenery along the way, it is advisable to plan a half day trip.Taiwu Mountain

    A nice hiking

    4 2018-09

    The first day at Kinmen, around 3 pm, we started the Taiwu mountain hiking. The footpath is nice with beautiful scenes on both side. In addition to the famous “wu-Wong-Jiu-ju“ inscribed rock, there is a Buddha temple and the up-side-down shadow tower” to explore the natural beauty and gorgeous scenes. This is definitely a must do activity when you visit a Kinmen.

    A great walk!!

    5 2016-05

    It takes about half an hour to walk to the top of the mountain. But the path is covered by the tress that makes it a great walk. There are quite a lots of interest place to discover on the path. All u need to do is just to relax and follow the sign. For nature lover, you can't just miss it if you come to Kinmen!! Too bad the weather on the day is a bite haze to enjoy the great view of the island.

    Good view but not that interesting

    3 2015-10

    Considering this is the highest point on the island, it offers a great view. There is also interesting history regarding this Taiwu Hill. However, I would only recommend to go if you have surplus time. For hikers, it would be more fun to ascend from the trail in the north and descend via the main footpath. Walking up the footpath will take around 20 mins if you are fit enough. However, you have to plan well in advance to fit for the bus schedule.
