A very popular hiking trail for locals. We started our trek in the morning around 10am and it was scorching hot with no tall trees for shade. It's necessary to bring enough water and pack of light lunch. It was tiring and quite challenging for...More

Every year I will go here to hiking,this trail need to spend 2-3hour to finished,on Nov is flower season,if you have time ,come to enjoy! 11月正是芒花盛開的時候,每當這時候特別會來爬,今年人很多,火車站塞滿了人,覺得交通部份可以改進,但十分推薦帶便當跟橘子上山吃,會有一種啊,人生啊 的感覺!

Came here three times already, starting from Fulong or Gongliao going to Dali. There are a lot of stairs at the beginning but it´s really worth it. There will be lots of people on the weekend, also lots of groups, so no danger of getting...More

Easily accessible, this is one of my favourite day hikes in Northern Taiwan. Not heavily touristic but, as with most places in Taiwan, try to visit on a weekday. Weather is temperamental here, so bring a jacket and prepare for clouds coming over. As mentioned,...More
