Maximize Adventure, Minimize Hassle: Your Personalized Service in Taiwan

For Non-Chinese Readers, We Understand Your Pains in Planning a Hike in Taiwan.

In light of recent earthquakes and subsequent aftershocks, all trails within Taroko National Park are currently closed for safety. We are NOT taking hike planing in April and May due to the safety concerns. Please stay safe.

Taiwan's breathtaking trails and mountains captivate visitors from around the globe with their stunning beauty. Yet, experiencing these wonders firsthand often presents challenges, as there is a significant disparity between the allure of these remote landscapes and the ease of accessing them for several reasons.

Language Barrier

This is a significant challenge as it affects almost every aspect of hiking in Taiwan, starting from the permit application process on Taiwan's national parks' websites, even if they are written in English.

The Latest Trail and Road Conditions

Due to typhoons and heavy rains, the trails might be closed due to landslides or collapse, which poses challenges in accessing up-to-date information on trail/road closures, maintenance, and natural events.

Hiking Permit Application

Many trails in Taiwan require permits, and the procedure may involve figuring out the hiking routes, which can be frustrating.
