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).

Be sure to read the group’s rules, especially our refund policy

Required Equipment:
-At least a 40L backpack
-Sturdy hiking shoes or boots (Sneakers won’t cut it on this one)
-tent
-Sleeping bag
-Warm clothes – the lake is 2200m above sea level – It will be cold at night!
-Rain gear
-Food (Saturday lunch, snacks)
-2L of water
-Flashlight
-Toiletries and personal items

We can help with tents, sleeping bags and other equipment, just let us know ahead of time.
Be sure to read the group’s rules, especially our refund policy

Dali-Datong Villages, Taroko Gorge Nov 6-8

The villages of Dali and Datong are situated high in the mountains above the mouth of the Liwu River which runs through Taroko Gorge. Both villages are cut off from roads and the electricity grid and the aboriginal people who live up there grow their own food and hike supplies in. There are several small B&Bs with campsites making it a great place to stay overnight.

This is a 2 day / 2 night trip taking place on Nov 6th-8th.

For more details, please visit our Facebook Event.

Snow Mountain – Dec 13-15

This hike takes place at the beginning of snow season, so there’ll be a chance of some snow. Snow Mountain is undoubtedly at it’s most beautiful in the snow, however it does make the hike much tougher. Please consider your fitness before deciding to join.

The Wuling Sixiu

The Wuling Sixiu – Nov 22-24

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.

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.

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

This is an OVERNIGHT trip leaving Taipei on Friday Nov 22nd and returning to Taipei on Sunday Nov 24th. 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. You will be expected to help carry some of the group’s equipment as well as your own. Please consider your ability before signing up.
