Tips for Senior Traveler:

Hawk-watching on Guanyinshan
Guanyinshan (Guanyin Mountain) belongs to the Datun Volcanic Group. Volcanic eruptions formed 18 peaks, which resemble a statue of the Goddess of Mercy (Guanyin) lying on her back facing the sky, hence its name. The highest peak, Yinghanling (Tough Man Peak), is 616 meters above sea level, and has a 360-degree panoramic view of the peaks of the Datun Mountains, the mouth of the Tamsui River, and the Guandu Plain. Every autumn, flocks of raptors fly to the warm south to spend the winter, and then return north to their breeding grounds in the spring. Guanyinshan, located on the left bank of the Tamsui River, has become a must-see route for Taiwan's raptors due to its unique and spectacular scenery and natural ecology. Every year in April and May, more than ten species of raptors can be seen on Guanyin Mountain, with the Chinese Sparrowhawk (Accipiter soloensis), Gray-faced Buzzard (Butastur indicus), Crested Goshawk (Accipiter trivirgatus) and Crested Serpent Eagle (Spilornis cheela), known as the "Four Raptors of Guanyinshan," being the most numerous.
