TAIPEI (Taiwan News) — Taipei's Geotechnical Engineering Office (GEO) is inviting the public to enjoy calla lily season at Yangmingshan National Park’s Zhuzihu beginning Friday (March 26).

Situated at 670 meters above sea level, Zhuzihu is a valley between the Datun, Qixing, and Siaoguanyin mountains. The area was originally a lake formed by volcanic lava.

Once a typical farming village, the area evolved over the years and is now known for calla lily flowers from March to May and hydrangea flowers from May to June.

The GEO said that besides admiring the sea of flowers, visitors may also explore the area's many trails, which are interspersed among the fields, forests, and creeks.

Transportation:

1. Take Taipei MRT to Beitou Station, transfer to Bus S9, and get off at the HuTian Elementary School or Zhuzihu Police Station stop.

2. Take Taipei MRT to Shipai Station, transfer to Bus S8, and get off at the HuTian Elementary School or Zhuzihu Police Station stop.

3. Take Bus 108, 109, 110, 230, 260, or R5 to Yangmingshan, transfer to Bus S9, and get off at the HuTian Elementary School or Zhuzihu Police Station stop.
