Songluo Lake (camping) – OCT 20-21
Taiwan Adventures is leading another overnight hiking/camping trip! This hike is a great way to get out the city for the weekend and get into Taiwan’s great outdoors. Camping out (hopefully under the stars) by the lake is a real treat, and there are several trails to explore for those who still have energy after the tough hike up!
This OVERNIGHT camping trip will take place on Saturday October 20th to Sunday October 21st.
We will meet at 7:00am on Saturday morning and take a van to the trailhead. From there we’ll hike the trail in to the lake, passing the water source before climbing and dropping down to the lake, where the trees open up and we have a large area to camp in.
No special technical abilities are required although the hike is fairly long (5-6 hours) and you’ll need to carry a backpack with food, sleeping bag and tent.
Dinner on Saturday evening, snacks and breakfast on Sunday will be provided. (Please bring your own lunch for Saturday)
Cost: $6900. There’s a $500 discount if you’ve been on an overnight trip with us before or are a full time student.
