Wuliao Jian: Definitely NOT a Boring Hike!! June 18

Post your northern Taiwan events here! (Events in Taipei and Xinbei should be posted in the Taipei / Xinbei Events forum.)
Forum rules
This forum is for the listing, promotion, and discussion of the specifics of events in northern Taiwan (but not Taipei/Xinbei). Please include a date in your title (e.g. 3/25) and - in the post - an address in English if possible. If you are providing the information in the form of an online photograph/flyer/poster, it is also advisable to provide the essential details in text as well, so as to facilitate ease of cut-and-paste.

As we wish to encourage people to post their events here, negative commentary isn't welcome in the Events forums. You are, however, more than welcome to post the same debate-encouraging negative criticism of bands, artists, etc. in the Arts & Entertainment or other appropriate forums.

Please PM the Moderators or Admin if you have any concerns or queries.

You know, I just now understood the humor in that line. Wow, am I slow! :oops:


Yes, considering I was thinking of you when I wrote that. (If you recall, you had asked for the tones on Wuliao Jian as your wife kept laughing at you for saying you were going to boring mountain.)

snafu, which MRT station and exit did you go to? My wife and I arrived at 9:40 and there was no one there and certainly no demonstration. Also, I don't recal any buses or bus stops outside exit two. Belgium Pie wrote that the buses go from exit 4. Were you there or possibly at Far Eastern Hospital station? Not all blue line trains go to Yongning.

In any case, glad to hear you got out there. Hope to see you next time.

The hot weather and my bad condition made me trying to give up at the very beginning, and I was so happy I didn't really return at that moment to realize that ... "definitely not a boring hike"
And I really enjoy my steak stew, it's awesome!

Glad you were able to come along on the rest of the hike!

MM,

I know it's probably around here somewhere, but could you post directions on getting there by car? It sounds like a great hike, I might want to try it in the coming weeks. Tks!

Take Highway 3 to the Sanxia/Yingge exit. Exit and drive along the road into Sanxia for 5 minutes or so until you get to the big traffic triangle roundaout place where the number 3 provincial runs into your road. Swing right, following the 3 provincial toward Full Moon Park. You'll see signs along the way. About 5-10 minutes later turn left when the road splits (the second split I believe, the first to Baiji Mountain). You want to get onto the 7 squiggle that goes to Sanmin. The sign should also mention Full Moon Park and possibly Wuliao Jian (there is an Wuliao Jian sign somewhere along here). In any case, the trail is famous locally.

I believe that once you make the turn onto the 7 squiggle it is 3.5 km to the WLJ trailhead. The trailhead is just off the side of the road. You pass the alien detention center then swing round a corner and see a big yellow sign of some god or other pointing up to a temple. Likely on a weekend you will see many cars parked on the side of the road. Park here. If you by chance reach the turnoff for Full Moon Park you know you've gone too far.

Park anywhere past the yellow sign and walk up to a convenience store on the right. The trailhead is to the left of the store. Can't miss it. Head up the trail (and it is up) and follow the main path. Eventually you will hit a map. The map has numbers on it. It is pretty simple to follow. If you only have a few people you can do it in 4-5 hours.

Great pictures. I like the last photo of Frodo beside his dwellings in the Shire. Looks like he's just enjoyed a good pipe.
