This is an offshoot of the Facebook group used to organise events around Taipei and Taiwan. Unlike what our name says, and unlike other groups, we do a bit of everything (hiking, biking, river tracing, snorkeling, paragliding...and some of our events may combine a meal along the way).
1-2 beginner 3-4 moderate 5-6 strenuous
Hiking Level: 3 moderate ( Have physical endurance and without any knee or leg injuries so consider other people speed)
We will be doing a moderate and enjoyable hike that features 4 different waterfalls. We will hike from Sandiaoling Train Station to Shifen Train Station. This hike includes some stone steps, steep ladders, stairs, and small rope bridges. We can sit in the water at the third waterfall. Once we have reached Shifen, there is the option to buy food from the various stands. http://taiwanswaterfalls.com/waterfall-guide/new-taipei-waterfalls/sandiaoling-waterfall-trail/ This hike will be around 4 hours depending on how long we stop at each waterfall. However, we may get back to Taipei a bit later around 6:30 since we will be traveling back on the bus from Shifen.
