We will take a rental van to Dream Lake and Kezilin natural stream pool Bring water shoes 1-2 beginner 3-4 moderate 5-6 strenuous Hiking Level: 4 moderate For hikers not afraid of heights and there will be some ropes 汐止夢湖新山 Dream Lake is rather beautiful pool cradled by steep, wooden hills a few kilometers north of the town of Xizhi. On the weekends it's popular with families and even couples taking their prewedding photos, but in morning it takes a magical deep green -blue hue in sunny weather. Mount Sin is looming above the lake . It has an impressively rocky eastern ridge which is fun to climb. The return hike to the summit from the lake is only an hour or so, the view from the top is magnificent.(Taipei Escapes 1 by Richard Saunders).For more details select the link below: http://www.taiwanoffthebeatentrack.com/2010/11/08/dream-lake-and-mt-sin/ Kezilin natural stream pool is natural pool for cooling down after a long hike and hot day for more details in Chinese select the link below: http://blog.xuite.net/balispa543/twblog1/523697926-%E3%80%90%E5%8F%B0%E5%8C%97%E3%80%91%E6%B1%90%E6%AD%A2%E5%85%8D%E8%B2%BB%E8%A6%AA%E5%AD%90%E7%8E%A9%E6%B0%B4%E6%99%AF%E9%BB%9E%E6%8E%A8%E8%96%A6%E3%80%82%E6%9F%AF%E5%AD%90%E6%9E%97%E5%A4%A9%E7%84%B6%E6%BA%AA%E6%B0%B4%E6%B3%B3%E6%B1%A0%E4%B9%BE%E6%B7%A8%E5%8F%88%E5%AE%89%E5%85%A8%E3%80%82%E5%8F%AF%E9%A0%86%E9%81%8A%E5%A4%A2%E6%B9%96 Food and drink: bring food from Xizhi or park a picnic to eat beside Dream Lake, as there is nothing on the route itself.

    What we're about

    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).

    We're also more on the laid-back side.

    Attending our events means that you have read, understood, and accepted our event rules: https://www.facebook.com/notes/hiking-and-r... (https://www.facebook.com/notes/hiking-and-riding-in-taipei/event-rules/10150270149591438)

    We only use this meetup group to organise our events. Everything else happens on our Facebook group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/44517786437... (https://www.facebook.com/groups/44517786437/)
