Everyone is welcome to come along next Saturday (June 23) for an easy but hugely enjoyable river-trace up the Jiajiuliao Stream (加九寮溪).
Rendezvous time will be a bright and early 7:30 at Xindian MRT station. We’ll probably take the bus from there (just a 15~20 minute ride) for simplicity’s sake.
No special equipment will be needed - just a pair of cheap fishermen’s non-slip shoes (not expensive rubbish from Timberland etc. , but the cheapest made-in-Taiwan NT$250~300 防滑鞋, which are by far the best for the purpose).
After we reach Fairy Pool (仙女潭), we’ll continue along the right branch of the stream to another good swimming and semi-waterfally spot where no Hiking Club activity has ventured before, so we’ll be breaking new ground as well as re-visiting some old favourites like this slide along the way: youtube.com/watch?v=SmQDSxSuC7A
If torrential rain in the next week makes the river untraceable, we’ll postpone the event to the following Saturday.
Please post here or PM me if you want to be in on this.
