Caoshan (草山) is the old name for Yangmingshan (陽明山). Located at a strategic high point in the mountains, it has a stunning view of the Taipei Basin. In the 1950’s, the American military stationed soldiers here to support the Republic of China government, also building an American Southern-styled military barracks.
