Located in Taipei City's Wenshan District, it's considered to be part of the Erge Mountain system. It's a small valley to the east of the Muzha tea plantations. Due to the loose and soft geology, the riverbed is eroded by pebbles year-round, forming many holes and pits. The creek water flowing is like that of a cat's claw. The bumpy and uneven resulting features are called "Cat's Face" in the Minnan dialect, and can be headed towards on the Maokong Gondola. Maokong is located within the vicinity of the Taipei suburbs, and features many hiking trails. On sunny days with clear weather, you can view the entire Taipei cityscape from the mountaintops. Formerly one of the largest tea-producing areas in Taipei, the tea plantation was built on an old path, for transportation purposes. Currently, traditional tea and catering services are combined for both tourism and leisure. Maokong's tea leaves are relatively well-known, especially its Tieguanyin tea.
