Geocache Description:

This is a pretty easy cache, you will walk on a dormant volcano if you start from XiaoYouKeng, full of hot smog of sulfur, different to your previous hiking.

Only five "the 1st class trig points" in whole Taipei Area (Taipei City and Taipei County), they are:

1) Mt. CiShin: H1120m (GCR4E5, This cache)
2) Mt. ShiZaiTou: H857m (GCR9ZA)
3) Mt. CanGuangLiao: H739m
4) Mt. DaDong: H405m (GCRNYN)
5) Mt. TuKu: H389m (GCRTY5)

I think it is the hardest trig point of the five, but the most worst also.

Mt. CiShin (means "seven stars") is located in northern taipei, the capital of Taiwan R.O.C. Main peak at 1120m (3675ft) elevation, the highest summit of Taipei. There is a benchmark (the 1st class trig point, and also the 1st class satellite control point) here. You can also to climb the east peak (height: 1106m) in your tour. it has a 3rd class triangulation point also.
