We’re arranging an overnight camping trip to Jialuo Lake in the mountains of Yilan County at the end of the month. This hike is one of our personal favourites and an all round stunning trip. Camping out under the stars by the lake is a real treat (if the weather plays along), and there are plenty of trails to explore for those who still have energy after the tough hike up!

Total cost for this hike is 6500ntd.

This OVERNIGHT camping trip will take place on Saturday October 24th to Sunday October 25th.

We will meet at Wanlong MRT Station at 7:00am on Saturday morning and drive to the trail head. First, we need to hike up about a 4km section of the forestry road, then we will begin the steep ascent through a really beautiful pine forest (around 6-7 hours in total). We will camp out by the lake at the top of the mountain ridge, and hopefully explore the surrounding area.

The hike is a pretty difficult one because the trail is quite steep in places. There is nothing technical, but a degree of fitness is required, as we will be climbing about 1000 meters on the first day.

Dinner on Saturday evening, snacks and breakfast on Sunday will be provided. (Please bring your own lunch for Saturday).
