Hello, I’m planning to do a two-day trek from my home in Xizhi to my girlfriend’s family house south of Xindian. I can split the hike equally into two days if I spend the night in Shiding old street or nearby and the area also offers a few convenience stores to recharge in the morning. Does anybody know a place where I could stay the night and rest, preferably without bringing my own tent?
That’s quite the walk!
“South of Xindian” means Wulai?
It’s not too far from Bitan, I just didn’t know how to describe the area
You can probably get the bus for $30. Might be a better option than sleeping rough
I think he’s into the challenge.
Air BnB? Shiding is not a tourist spot.
Is there like an old trail you will follow? Or are you planning this like from a map? Taiwan’s mountains are quite treacherous and easy to get lost in.
Deaths while hiking are very high this year already.
Anything is better than sleeping under the roof of a bus stop, so a good camping spot would do as well.
Most of the route follows the 環大台北天際線 trail. If anyone’s interested, I can share the route I planned.
I’ve always wanted to stay in Shiding Old Street area to experience dusk and evening and night and mornings and mist and whatever else comes along.
I’ve never found a hotel there though. The nearest were generally around Shenkeng or Jingtong.
Seems like there is a new building there that might have some type of hotel or something but I can’t find it on Google maps.
The only option coming up on booking.com for me is this:
Lohas Gallery Long Stay Hostel
Not sure if that is close to your hiking route, or not . . .
I’d be interested in it.
Thank you, I checked these accommodations as well but they would require significant changes to my route, plus they’re a bite expensive given how basic my needs are. Here’s the link to the route @BigDave : Mapy.cz. If you’d be interested to join, let me know
