I am looking to learn outdoor survival skills such as shelter making, fire making, water purification, identifying wild foods etc and traditional aboriginal skills for example bow making, tracking. If you could point me in the right direction I would be very grateful.
I tried looking in the topics but could not find what I was looking for.
There are many indigenous people in Taiwan who have these skills. However, they are unlikely to teach them to some random person they don’t know. You really need to spend some time in their community and win the trust of the people before you can expect them to teach you these things.
Contact one of the Bunun portering companies. These guys are tough and experienced in the mountains. Cloud Leopard is a good one. I can’t recal their website but just check out the Outdoor section of the new Lonely Planet as I put the details there.
