Route 3: Taiwan Central Mountain Range Challenge Tour

Description

The Beauty of the Hills & Embrace the local Culture

The Central Mountain Range extends from Su-ao in the northeast to Eluanbi at the southern tip of Taiwan, forming a ridge of high mountains and serving as the Island’s principal watershed. The mountains are predominantly composed of hard rock formations resistant to weathering and erosion, although heavy rainfall has deeply scarred the sides with gorges and sharp valleys. With plenty of mountains to test your thighs, visas on arrival and a vibrant culture, you will gain loads of fabulous memories to share with your friends back home!

To quote the BBC: “Taiwan’s most grueling cycling challenge heads from the depths of the dizzying marble Taroko Gorge to the KOM summit, ending at a green- and blue-hued lake surrounded by leafy hills.”

Cycling around the Sun Moon Lake in any season allows you to experience the various sides of the lake. It has also been crowned as one of the Eight Wonders of Taiwan. The key themes of this tour are – “the peak and the lake”, “indigenous culture”, and “natural ecology”.
