Details

***Sign up before March 8th!!!***

The Wuling Sixiu is a group of 4 mountains. The ‘si’ meaning four and the ‘xiu’ meaning excellence. The mountains are, Kelayeshan, Taoshan, Chiyoushan and Pintianshan, and they can be hiked over 3 days in the Sheipa National Park. They make up the northeastern part of the Holy Ridge O-route.

On this hike we’ll hike to the top of Chiyoushan and Pintianshan covering two of the four peaks.

It is a pretty tough hike, with some very steep sections and the odd bit of scrambling. However, the hike is a lot of fun and every bit as beautiful as some of Taiwan’s more famous mountains.

This is an OVERNIGHT trip leaving Taipei on Friday April 10th and returning to Taipei on Sunday April 12th. We’ll spend two nights camping or staying in cabins. Tents will be provided if needed.

Although the hike doesn’t require any much technical climbing ability, it is in the high mountains and is a VERY TOUGH HIKE. Please consider your ability before signing up.

***PRICE***

If you’re a full time student or you’ve been on another overnight hike with us, the price is $8,200NTD. If this is your first hike with us, the price is $9,200NTD.
