Kingdom of Butterflies

Around 150 butterfly species can be found in Yangmingshan National Park. The area between Tatunshan and Mientienshan is particularly rich in butterflies due to its several nectar-bearing wildflowers.

Green Spotted butterflies migrate between Japan and Yangmingshan. Their numbers usually peak in the second week of June. I plan to be there to see for myself!
