Route 2: Mount Keelong and the North Coast

Description

Taiwan Northeast Cape (Jinguashi – Keelong Badoutzi)

Handleless-Teapot Mountain, Gold Falls, Elephant-Trunk Rock, these are just some of the geographical marvels on offer by the north-east coast of Formosa, a masterpiece crafted with the immense forces supplied by two sumo-wrestling tectonic plates. And is there a better way to take in all these fabulous sights than on your trusty ol’ bike? Join us as we delve deep not just into the great works of Mother Nature’s but also the cultural allure of Formosa’s north-east coast.

Riding is much more than just sweating. Sit back, enjoy the cool sea breeze, and bask in the magnificent cultural and natural beauty of Taiwan.
