You may not know where is Qingtianggang grassland, but you must hear about Yangmingshan National Park. Well, Qingtianggang grassland is one of the most famous sites in this national park and it’s famous for being the best picnicking places in northern Taiwan. Because Yangmingshan is a volcano which is full of special geology makes this grassland become a lava terrace. Due to the flat terrain, the grassland became an important cattle grazing area during the Japanese era. You can still see some cattle here. The best time to travel here might be in the early morning or in the afternoon. You can leisurely lie on the grass, and the cattle will be around you.
