Overnight Hikes and Trips

Camping in Taiwan’s lush forests can be an treat for the most rugged outdoorsman, or fun for the whole family.  If camping isn’t you thing, comfortable, reasonably priced lodges and hotels are found all over the island.  We have a number of hikes that can easily be done in a weekend or extended into multi-day adventures.  So get out of the city and enjoy the mountains with us!

We sometimes offer these hikes as pre-arranged group hikes.  For more information, check out and join our facebook group.  For more information on customized trips to these locations, contact us directly.

Taroko Gorge

Taroko Gorge is the jewel of the Taiwan National Park system.  There are a host of amazing trails to explore in this area.

Smangus

Smangus is a remote aboriginal village high in the mountains to the east of Hsinchu.  There are plenty of hikes to do of which the highlight is a hike to a group of thousand-year old trees.

Dali-Datong

The villages of Dali and Datong are off the grid and can only be accessed by foot.  They make a great place to base yourself while exploring some of the nearby mountains in the Taroko National Park

Jialuo Lake

This is a challenging hike through a beautiful pine forest leads up to a ridge and a stunning group of natural lakes.

Hehuanshan

The Hehuanshan mountain range is located in the center of Taiwan and because there is a road that leads right into the heart of this area, it is a great place for exploring Taiwan’s high mountains.

Guguan

The village of Guguan has some exceptionally good hikes that can easily be done in a day as well as some great hot springs to soak in afterwards.

Songluo Lake

A lovely hike through a dense forest brings you to this pretty lake high up in the mountains of Yilan County.

Shuiyang Lake

This is great 2 day hiking and camping trip in the foothills of Jade Mountain and the Alishan area.   The Shuiyang Lake was created after the 921 earthquake and is a great place to spend a night camping.
