Different looks of the landmark Shuei-Jin-Jiu (Shueinandong, Jinguashi, Jiufen)
Depending on the angle, Keelung Mountain takes on different looks.Looking from the sea makes the mountain look like a chicken coop; because of this, it used to be called “Chicken Coop Mountain.” Looking from the side, it looks like a pregnant woman, thus, it also has the name “Mount Pregnant Lady.” Looking at the mountain from Ruijin Road, it looks similar to Mount Fuji; therefore, it is also known as “The Mount Fuji of Keelung.”
Overlooking the Breathtaking Night Scenery
Keelung Mountain is close to Jiufen Old Street, and is also a popular hiking destination. The entire hiking trail up to the peak is formed by stairs, and there are two gazebos along the way, which provide hikers with places to rest. When you get to the top, you can see the scenery of Jiufen, Jinguashi, and the North Coast with a 360-degree view. If you choose to climb the mountain during sunset, you can see the dreamy landscape of dimmed-light Jiufen and Jinguashi turning into a breathtaking golden mountain village.
