2018 Yangmingshan Butterfly Festival to take place on June 2 to 24; vehicles barred from Datun Mountain roads!

 

Taiwan is home to approximately 400 discovered species of butterflies, of which 190 have been recorded in Yangmingshan National Park. As temperatures rise starting in summer each year, nectariferous plants such as the Eupatorium shimadae, the Angelica dahurica var. formosana (Boissieu) Yen, and the Sambucus formosana Nakai enter their blooming periods. Many butterflies also undergo metamorphosis at this time of the year, leading to an eruption in the numbers of butterflies and flowers in the park, primarily the milkweed butterfly and the Eupatorium. The butterflies in the Datun Mountains are of the largest scope and are the most easily accessible. They are quite an ecological spectacle.

The Datun Mountain Road is one of the main butterfly-viewing routes in the park. To preserve plant and animal habitats while still offering visitors a safe butterfly-watching experience, all vehicles (including bicycles) are prohibited from entering the road between the hours of 7AM to 4PM from June 2 to June 24 (with regular controls), official park vehicles excluded. We seek your full cooperation and apologize for any inconvenience.
