Or trips bring you one way (up or down the mountain) by
van stopping as you wish for easy hikes in pristine forest
and tea plantations. Once settled in your hotel we can
bring you several kilometers away to Tatajia (Tataka)
in Yushan National Park for the usually stunning sunset
over a sea of clouds. In the morning, instead of going
with the masses to the standard sunrise spot in the resort
you may come back to the National Park for a more serene
event! Various, tame to strenuous, hiking options available.
