Songluo Lake is a beautiful swampy lake that is set in a basin, surrounded on all sides by mountains. The lake is situated at an altitude of around 1300 metres above sea level, which makes the temperatures in summer just about perfect for camping. It’s usually done as a 2 day/1 night trip from Taipei.
Hiking to Songluo Lake involves around 5 hours of hiking. We’ll be carrying tents and cooking equipment. There is some exposure to heights along the trail.
We’ll be camping next to the lake. Tents can be provided.
Private transportation is provided from anywhere in Taipei or the Taipei/Taoyuan Airport to the mountain. Pickups in other locations can be arranged, sometimes for a small extra fee. Vehicles are insured; Drivers are licensed; and traffic rules are obeyed.
All the main meals are provided for the hike. Clients only need to bring their own snacks. If you have any special dietary requests, allergies, or needs, let us know and we’ll be happy to accommodate you.
