Guguan Hikes and Hot Springs

The hot spring village of Guguan has plenty to offer the outdoor enthusiast as well as a selection of places to soak in hot water.  There are a number of excellent hikes, known collectively as the 7 Heroes of Guguan, which vary greatly in difficulty, but are all superb.

Nearby Guguan is the Baxian Forest Recreation Area where the Baxian Mountain Hike begins, the hardest of the 7 Heroes.  This is also a great spot for shorter hikes and bird watching.
