Our second family
Our second family friendly hike!
We’ll meet at Houshanpi MRT Station Exit 2 at 1430 on Sunday, March 25th. From there we’ll walk over to the beautiful Fengtian Temple where the hike starts.
The hike takes up some steep stairs to Tiger Mountain. From there we’ll follow the road to Elephant Mountain and hopefully we’ll arrive in time for sunset. Please bring a headlamp or torch. The path is lit at night, but it’s best have your own light in case we’re a little slow.
If there’s enough interest we can go for dinner after the hike.
The hike should take around 3-4 hours including rest stops. It’s relatively easy, but there are some steep sections of stairs, please make sure that you are OK with that.
Also please note that this is a family friendly hike. Anyone is welcome to come, but we’ll walk at a slow pace so everyone can enjoy the hike together.

Houshanpi MRT Exit 2
This April we’ll be hiking to the villages of Dali and Datong in Taroko Gorge, Taiwan. The villages both 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.
Friday 20th – Meet in Taipei and take the train to Xincheng where we’ll stay in a small B&B.
Saturday 21st – We’ll be up early to head to Taroko Gorge to apply for permits and begin the hike near the national park HQ. The hike begins with steep stairs with excellent views of the mouth of the Liwu River. After a few hours we’ll arrive at the Dali Village From there it’s a relatively easy flat walk along the old forestry road to Datong Village where we’ll stay the night in a basic B&B.
Sunday 22nd – Today’s itinerary will depend on the group. There are two peaks that we can do. Both have great views of the Pacific Ocean. We’ll do one of them depending on everyone’s fitness/energy before heading back down and returning to Taipei.
