(*Apart from the start time all other itinerary timings are approximate but we'll try to finish by the end time)
7:30 Meet at the designated start point (near Jiantan MRT). This is an early start as it's a longer trail and the weather will be cooler to start.
(The exact meeting point will be sent to you by your group leader after you register on the website)
7:45 Get the local bus from the meet point to the trail head at Erziping Visitor Centre. It's about an hour on the bus and the schedule is infrequent so we will likely decide to share taxis to the trail head (approx. 100 TWD each).
8:45 Start our hike at the trail head
11:00 Stop for a break at one of the peaks
1:00 Another pit stop for a picnic lunch
3:00 Reach the end of the trail at Xiaoyoukeng Visitor Centre and get the bus back to the MRT
4:00 Arrive back at Shilin MRT & say goodbye to all your new friends!!
This is a longer (in distance and estimated completion time) and somewhat challenging hike with rope sections up and down steep trails, but enornously rewarding. In this case we are limiting it to a smaller group.
NOTE: Since some sections of this trail are steep and can be very slippery in the wet, in the case of heavy rain we may have to hike an alternate route/ section.
