Canguangliao Mountain is adjacent to the famous Jinguashi Scenic Area at an altitude of 739m and is the highest mountain among Keelung Volcano Group. Its flourishing silver grass is a special sight for the mountains in this area; every fall, the mountains of silver grass would shine in silver rays under the sun, which was thought to give the name “Canguangliao”. The hilltop at Canguangliao is not covered, and there are also no other surrounding mountains that higher than Canguangliao, so the sight radius can be as wide as nearly 100km. When the weather is clear, a 360-degree outlook gives a spectacular view over Taipei City, and views of Santiao Chiao Lighthouse and the Northeast Coast on the other side.
