After a heavy lunch, let’s do some walking and hiking.
First trail we going to walk is this Shakadang Trail.
In Taiwan, you can take any rock from the point of interest, is illegal. Of course, you cannot leave anything behind too.
This is the trail we are going to walk. So, let’s walk about 1 hour like that.
Some history facts about Shakadang River Valley.
My two happy kids. Always keep smiling.
The whole journey is about 1.5 hour.
It is actually quite a boring walk. This trail is designed for adult. Not for kids. Wahahahaha
Of course, we cannot design a tour that is purely kids activities, right? So, must have adults activities.
This is as far as we can go before the rain drops.
We actually walked 1KM in 30 minutes. Not too bad la.
Then, the rain drops. So, we end up soaking wet when we go back to the van.
Then, suddenly the sun comes out again.
So, we reached another trail. 燕子口.
Every one have to wear safety helmet this time.
So, this is probably the first time the kids have to wear this. So, they knock each other helmets.
It looks like every one has their helmet on, so, let’s move!
Let’s walk the 燕子口 trail. Along the way, you will see a lot of rocks. All kinds of rocks. Under the surface of the rock, you may find jade, ruby or some nice jewels.
We have to be careful as the bus also uses the same trail to get to the other side. So, we have to walk within the red line.
We have walk into the cave.
And the scenery is just breathe taking.
All those rocks may be precious rocks.

That is why there are law governed that nobody should remove any rock from these places.
There is a lot of tunnel walk ways.
Look scary. But it is actually safe.
So, all 6 of our vans drive slowly to the front and wait for us to come onboard.
We then, move on to our next destination.
