Okay, finally the hiking club goes back into motion. This Sunday, for the sake of Limey, we will head out the Sandiaoling Waterfall area. We did this trail last spring. It’s gorgeous, fresh, easy-going, if somewhat long, and introduces you to some of the highest falls in the north. If it is a nice day there are a few chances to get wet, though unless we do a little bush-whacking or river tracing, no big pools.
We will meet at the Taipei Main Railway Station. There are no roads into the are so its trains all the way. I will post times later.
Walking time is around 4-5 hours. It’s mostly easy, gentle hiking with a few climbs up rope and log ladders. Nothing too challenging.
Here are some pics:
This fall you can actually stand right behind.
I sat down on the rocks here once and posed like a venerable one. I hope Chris still has the pic.
This next one is Shifen Falls. We pass by this on the last stretch as we hike along the tracks back to Shifen. You have to pay to get into this one.
