Hi !
 
 “Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails.  Explore.  Dream.  Discover.” – Mark Twain
 

We couldn’t have said it better. What is it about traveling that enriches your soul like little else can? Sometimes you need to get away from the clutter of society to discover the world through lenses of our own. Life is about experiences and making memories, and at the end of the ride, having one epic story worth telling. That’s what we think anyway. So get out there and start creating your own story!

If you have any suggestions of ideas for improvements for our newsletter, please do email us. We'd love to hear from you.

 
Tea Talk - Trekking Taiwan "Beautiful Island" - 12 Oct 2013 (Saturday)

Taiwan – not just a vibrant modern urban jungle with excellent food - it’s a treasure trove of fantastic trekking and adventures. Visit Taiwan and hike some of the most beautiful mountains in Asia ...

5D Syue Shan – The Snow Mountain
Tucked inside the Shei-Pa National Park is the spectacular peak Syue Shan, ranking the second highest in Taiwan at 3886m. The ascent of the Snow Mountain, will take you through diverse geological terrain making it one of the most scenic trails in Taiwan. Trek through a forest of pine and deciduous trees called the “Black Forest”, and finally through a ridge of shale to get to the main summit. You will then be able to feast your eyes on an amazing 360 degree panorama of entire mountain ranges, including Yushan.

5D Yushan – The Jade Mountain
Taiwan’s crowned jewel, the beautiful Jade Mountain soars above the ground at 3952m. Your trek begins at Tatajia, and along the trail you pass through a variety of different ecosystems - from the "white forest", a scenic grove of trees weathered white, to thick bamboo groves. The summit plateau is excitingly rocky and characterized by layers of rock slabs. At the summit you will be able to catch the sun rising from the horizon and lighting up all before it.
