Shiding (石碇) and Shenkeng (深坑) are two small towns found just to the east of Taipei, Taiwan. They’re both withing 3o minutes of Taipei’s convenient MRT system and together, they make for a great day trip out of the city.
Shiding is a simple mountain village located at the convergence of two small mountain streams. It’s got an old-time Taiwan feel to it, and in fact has many stores that are over a century old. It also has two very clean, fish-filled streams that come from virgin forests high above, in the nearby mountains.
Doorways don't get much cooler than this.

Hiking Huang Di Dian 皇帝殿 this past weekend was one of the best day trips I’ve been on in Taiwan. Just about 20 minutes from Taipei, this hike is one that shouldn’t be missed.
A perfect 360 view awaited us at the end.
