[STICKY] Threads about HIKING

Moderator: hannes

Forum rules
When posting, especially when starting a new thread, please use a title that explains your post or thread, e.g. don't put "Help please!" when you could put "Where can I find a camp site near Kending?"

Please check your spelling, because someone may do a text search for your information, e.g. if someone searches for information on Xizhi and you have spelled it She Jher, they won't find it. Someone spelled camping as "campin" without a g at the end - again, it can't be found by a text search. For place names in Taiwan, please try to use Hanyu Pinyin as default, as that is the spelling most people know.

Please place links in your posts to sources of information. If you don't know how to hotlink text, click on the BBCode tips link in my signature to find out.

If you find a thread that is so hopelessly out of date that it couldn't be of use to anyone, please send the moderator a private message (with the URL of the thread)

If you spot two or more threads that you think could be merged, again, alert the moderator

[STICKY] Threads about HIKING

Thought I organize the Travel in Taiwan forum a bit to make it easier to find info about traveling in Taiwan.

In this thread you'll find links to threads in this forum about Hiking in Taiwan. Please check out these threads and/or use the search function, before you decide to make a new thread. Not all of the below threads have valuable info (didn't check them all in detail) but the list gives you an idea about which threads have been active in the last three years or so. If there are older threads with valuable info you think should be listed here, let me know and I will update this post. Will also update this post whenever new related threads are created.
(The further up the links are in each segment the newer (time of last post) they are. The titles of the threads are the original ones, not created by me.)
