Here is the Caoling Histotric Trail:
When the weather is clear, one is filled with views of the pacific oceans and the wilds of the interior. However when it is foggy, as I had my entire day, one has to look closer a the lush vegetation and those working its land.
At the top of the ridge, where the trail branches in many directions, lie beautiful boulders nestled into the hillside.
As the trail descends toward the road, a tiny unnamed temple hugs the edge of rice fields and the surrounding hills.
If you choose to go, don't expect to get their easily, but it is well worth it. You must take the train from Taipei to Toucheng, ride a taxi to town of Daxi, then hike hard up and over the challenging ridge for the 10 to 15 miles to avoid darkness and down to the main highway. Then walk along the road for the two miles to village of Fulong or if you are lucky like me a random motocycle driver may pick you up along the road.
Get out and explore your world.
